220.127.116.11 2019-20 Financial Aid Repeat Coursework Policy
Federal regulations limit the amount of federal aid that can be used when repeating a course that has previously been passed with any grade higher than an ‘F’. If a student earns a ‘W’ or ‘F’ in a course, the student can continue to repeat the course paid with federal aid so long as they are meeting minimum Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements. Once a grade of ‘D’ or higher is earned for a course, students can only repeat the course one more time and use federal aid to pay for the course. If the student passes the course the first time and repeats, but fails the course, they cannot retake the course again and use Title IV aid to pay for another repeat.
Every account is reviewed through an internal reporting process to determine federal aid eligibility for repeat coursework. The Repeat Enrollment with Aid report is run on a weekly basis to ensure a student’s eligibility is reviewed in a timely manner. This process applies to every academic level – undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate.
If a student repeats a course that is not eligible for federal aid, a recalculation of aid is completed to exclude the credits for the repeated course.
This rule applies whether or not the student received aid for earlier enrollments in the course.
