Repeated Coursework

All students should be aware of financial aid implications with regard to repeated coursework.  Beginning July 1, 2011, federal regulations state that students may only receive federal financial aid funding for one repetition of a previously passed course.

"Passed" means a course was completed with a grade of "D" or higher, "S" (Satisfactory) or "P" (Pass).

This regulation applies to all students regardless of any policy within an academic program requiring a higher grade in the course.

Students registered for a second retake (third enrollment) of a previously passed course, even if your most recent attempt resulted in an "F" or "U" (Unsatisfactory) will not be eligible for federal financial aid to pay for the class.  Additionally, the course will not count in the student's total enrollment for federal aid eligibility and may result in adjusting the financial aid award if exlusion of the repeated course changes the student's enrollment status (see below).

For federal financial aid purposes, enrollment status is defined as:

  • Full-time - 12 or more credits
  • 3/4 time - 9 to 11 credits
  • 1/2 time - 6 to 8 credits
  • Less than 1/2 time - 1 to 5 credits

Note - The student is still responsible for paying for the course if federal financial aid does not cover it under the Repeated Coursework Policy. 

Repeated courses (along with the original attempt) ARE included as attempted credits for the purpose of determining Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress.

Utilize the Repeated Coursework Flow Chart to help guide you in determining if a repeated course will be eligible for funding or not.
