Financial Aid Office

Repeated Course Policy

A federal regulation limits the number of times a student may repeat a course and receive financial aid for that course. Note: the federal policy is different from the university policy, please see Registrars for details.

  • A student may receive aid when repeating a course which was previously failed (received a 0.0 or No Pass), regardless of the number of times the course was attempted and failed.
  • A student may receive aid to repeat a previously passed course (D or higher) one additional time. This includes course(s) transferred from another school that were passed.
  • Retaking “W” grade courses is not considered repeating courses.
  • Once a student has completed any course twice with a passing grade, he/she is no longer eligible to receive aid for that course.
  • If a student retakes a course that is not aid eligible, a recalculation of aid is done to exclude the credits for that course.
  • This rule applies whether or not the student received aid for earlier enrollments in the course.
  • Students will receive notification of any possible violations of this policy.
