Repeating Classes

Financial Aid Repeated Coursework Policy

The Department of Education has recently published new regulations which impact students who repeat courses. These repeated courses may impact your financial aid eligibility and awards for Federal Title IV financial aid (Pell Grant, FSEOG, FWS, Direct Loans). 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 the third time, this course will not count towards your enrollment for financial aid purposes. This rule applies whether or not the student received financial aid for earlier enrollments in the course.
• A student may receive financial aid when repeating a course for the first time.
• A student may receive financial aid when repeating a course that was previously failed or withdrawn from regardless of the number of times the course was attempted and failed.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 financial aid to repeat a previously passed course one additional time. If a student fails the second attempt no more 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 passing grade; he or she is no longer eligible to receive financial aid for that course. If a student retakes a course that is not aid eligible, the units will be excluded from the financial aid enrollment for that semester.
