Remedial Coursework Policy (Effective Summer 2016)

Remedial Coursework Policy (Effective Summer 2016)

Remedial coursework prepares a student for study at the postsecondary level. According to Federal regulations, a student may receive Federal financial aid for up to 30 credit hours of remedial coursework. Remedial coursework includes most DEV (with the exception of those listed below), ACA, BIT, and EXL courses. Remedial coursework also includes prerequisite courses that are not required for a student's program of study, for example MAT 0200. A course will be excluded from the determination of a student's Federal financial aid if the total remedial credit hours, with the course included, exceeds 30 credit hours.

Remedial coursework content must be at least high school level. If a remedial course's content is below the high school level, the course cannot be included to determine federal financial aid eligibility, and will not count toward the 30 credit hour remedial coursework limit because it does not meet the definition of remedial. At Sinclair, MAT 0050 (formerly DEV 0020) is the only course that does not meet content standards.
