A recent federal regulation change regarding repeated coursework may impact your financial aid eligibility and awards. Effective for the fall 2011 semester, in order for a repeated course to be counted towards your 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 and passed course for a third time, this course will not count towards your enrollment for financial aid purposes. For example, if you are enrolled in a total of 12 credit hours and 3 credits you have repeated in the past, you will only be considered enrolled in 9 hours for financial aid purposes.
If you have been awarded financial aid and the repeated course is affecting your enrollment, you will have a hold on your account that will prevent any aid from crediting your student account. Your may either opt to add an additional course to bring your financial aid enrollment hours to full time or contact our office so that we may reevaluate your financial aid file and make any necessary adjustments to your financial aid.
