Repeat Classes and Financial Aid Eligibility

Federal financial aid regulations limit the number of times a student may repeat a course and receive federal financial aid for that course.

 

If a student receives a W, E, UW, or NC in a course:

  • A student can repeat the same course and receive federal financial aid (in addition to meeting all Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements) until a CR or D- grade or better is earned for the class.
  • Once the student has achieved a CR or D- grade or better, a student may repeat the same course a second time and still receive federal financial aid.

 

If a student elects to take a repeat class a third time:

  • Once a CR or D- grade or better has been earned, the class is not eligible for federal financial aid.
  • This rule applies whether or not a student received federal financial aid in earlier enrollments of the course.
