Course Repeat Policy
The Financial Aid Course Repeat Policy is not the same as the College policy, as it is based on federal course repeat regulations.
College policy: A course in which a student received a “C-” or below may be repeated without prior approval. A course in which a student received a grade of “C” or higher may be repeated only with prior approval. Waiver to Repeat a Course forms are available in the Registrar’s Office.
Financial Aid Course Repeat Policy: A student may receive financial aid to repeat without limit, any failed or withdrawn course until a passing grade is received, provided the student is otherwise eligible and is making satisfactory academic progress.
Once a passing grade is received in a course, financial aid can be used to repeat that same course one time only. However, if a student withdraws from a repeated course that was previously passed, that attempt does not count as his or her one allowed retake of that course.
Example 1: A student takes MATH 101 and receives an “F”, retakes it and receives a “D-”. The student may receive financial aid to take the course again. If the student receives a grade of “A”, “B”, “C”, “D”, or “F” in the course, he or she is not eligible to receive financial aid to repeat the course.
Example 2: A student takes BIOL 201 and receives a “D”. The student may receive financial aid to take the course again. The second time the student takes this course, he or she receives a grade of “A”, “B”, “C”, “D”, or “F”. Financial aid may not be used to repeat this course again.
Example 3: A student takes ENGL 101 and receives a “C-“, retakes it and withdraws (“W”). The student may receive financial aid to repeat this course.
Students may not receive financial aid to repeat a course with a grade of “I” *incomplete”. Students may also not receive financial aid for classes that have been accepted for transfer credit from another institution.
A student’s financial aid may be adjusted at any time it is determined that a course is ineligible for financial aid.
