Repeated Course Limits
In Fall 2011, federal regulations changed financial aid eligibility for repeated coursework. Courses eligible for financial aid include:
- A course taken for the first time.
- A course taken again after failing or withdrawing from it.
- A course retaken after passing it once - includes courses transferred from another school.
Courses NOT eligible for financial aid include:
- Any course retaken a second time after passing it once - includes courses transferred from another school
It is recommended that you work closely with your academic advisor and your financial aid advisor if you plan to retake a course for a better grade.
