Using Federal Financial Aid to Pay for Repeating a Course

Effective July 1, 2012, a student may use Federal financial aid only one time to pay for repeating a course previously passed. If the student received a grade higher than an "F", this is considered passing by the Department of Education regulations and he/she may then only repeat that course one time using Federal financial aid. If the student has not received a passing grade previously in the course, there is no limit to how many times the course may be retaken, provided satisfactory academic progress policy guidelines are met. Continually repeating courses may eventually impact the requirements affecting Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).
