Repeat Coursework Policy
Financial Aid Repeat Coursework Policy
Students may receive federal financial aid funding for one (1) repetition of a course successfully completed. The repeated class may be counted towards a student's enrollment status and the student may be awarded Title IV aid for the enrollment status based on the inclusion of the class.
Grades of A, B, C, D, Y, P and S are considered course credit hours successfully completed.
Grades of W, F, U, I, IP, N and Z are considered course credit hours not successfully completed.
Students should be aware that for Satisfactory Academic Progress, all coursework attempted counts toward GPA, PACE of completion and maximum timeframe hours used to determine eligibility for federal financial aid.

Students taking repeated courses should consult with the Financial Aid & Scholarships office prior to registration to ensure repeated courses are counted appropriately for financial aid eligibility. In addition, a student may need to provide documentation from the department chairperson of their valid active program regarding the need to repeat courses.
A possible exception exists for coursework with the same department name, course number and title but whose content varies by term and is required to complete the student's current active program. All exceptions will require the student to complete and submit a Repeat Coursework Appeal. Please see a financial aid officer for the Repeat Coursework Appeal form and a list of department chair office locations.
