Financial Aid Policies:  Repeat Courses

Limited Eligibility of Repeated Coursework for Title IV Funding

New regulations effective 07/01/11 prohibit a student from receiving Title IV funding for more than one graded repeat attempt of a course which has previously been completed with a non-failing grade. Only one additional graded attempt of a course which has been previously completed with a non-failing grade will be considered eligible for Title IV funding. Any attempts in excess of the one additional graded attempt allowed by regulations will be viewed as ineligible for Title IV funding. Exceptions may be made for cases where the student’s program requires enrollment in same course on a continuing basis over several semesters, with each attempt having significantly different course content (such as fine arts or thesis/dissertation courses).
