Repeated courses may impact your financial aid eligibility and awards for Federal Title IV financial aid. In order for a repeated course to count toward your financial aid enrollment status for financial aid purposes, you may only repeat a previously passed course once (a total of two attempts). If you enroll in a previously repeated course for a third time, this course will not count towards your enrollment for financial aid purposes. This rule applies whether or not the student received aid for earlier enrollments in the course.
- A student may receive aid when repeating a course for the first time.
- A student may receive aid when repeating a course that was previously failed or withdrawn from regardless of the number of times the course was attempted and failed. (Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy still applies)
- A student may receive aid to repeat a previously passed course one additional time. If a student fails the second attempt, no more aid financial aid will be given to repeat the course a third time. If the second attempt is a withdrawal then it is allowable for a third attempt.
- Once a student has completed any course twice with a grade, he/she is no longer eligible to receive aid for that course. If a student retakes a course that is not aid eligible, the credit hours will be excluded from the financial aid enrollment for that semester.
- Allowable: Repeated coursework may be included if the student received a falling grade or withdrew from the class. There is no limit on the number of repeats if the student does not pass the class.
- Allowable: A student takes Biology 1134 and receives a grade of W or F. The student repeats the class and receives a D. For financial aid, the student is considered to have now passed the class. He or she may repeat the class one more time and receive financial aid. If on the second attempt if the student receives a W then the student can repeat the class again, if a grade is assigned including an F then the student cannot repeat the course again and the class cannot be counted for enrollment purposes for financial aid.
- Not Allowable: A student takes Biology 1134 and receives a D. The student repeats the course and makes a B. The Biology 1134 course cannot be considered for financial aid enrollment on the third repeat.
- Not Allowable: A student is enrolled in 12 credit hours, including 3 credit hours that are considered to be a third repeat; therefore only 9 credits will count toward financial aid eligibility.
