Please review the Terms of Agreement and either drop it in the drop box in the front of our office on the wall, fax or mail it to us.
You must meet three requirements to be considered to be making Satisfactory Academic Progress in order to receive financial aid.
If you withdraw from all of your classes before 60% of the semester, you may be expected to repay all or a portion of your financial aid.
If you receive a financial aid check based on six (6) or more units and then drop below six units to less than half-time prior to receiving your second check, you will be required to repay all or a major portion of your financial aid. For example, if your original Pell Grant for the semester was $2000 and you received your first disbursement of $1000 (50%), you would have to repay a significant amount if you dropped to less than half-time status.
If you fail to begin attendance in some classes and the instructor drops you as a late drop you may be expected to pay back all or a portion of your financial aid.
If you do not officially withdraw from your classes and receive all F’s, NC’s, I’s and W’s and did not attend classes through 60% of the semester, you may be expected to repay all or a portion of your financial aid.
Withdrawing from all of your classes or dropping below 6 units will terminate your “IN-SCHOOL” status. Failure to re-enroll within the next six months will place your student loan in “REPAYMENT” status where you must begin making payments on your loan. Federal loans must be repaid regardless of whether you complete your college program or are able to find employment.
If you dropped units, consider enrolling in short term, mid-semester classes. If you are thinking about dropping classes, contact the financial aid office to see if and how it may affect your eligibility. The Counseling Department is available to assist you in developing or modifying your class schedule.
Federal regulations allow for students to receive federal student aid for one repeat of a previously passed course. A grade of D or better is considered passing. W's do not count as repeats. If you attempt a course for the third time after previously receiving a passing grade in that course, you will no longer be eligible for payment for those units.
Title IV funds are awarded to a student under the assumption that the student will attend school for the entire period for which the financial aid is awarded. When a student withdraws from all classes, the financial aid award amount for the student is affected. When a student receives a combination of F/Ws or all Fs, we must treat it as if the student dropped all classes.
