A recent federal regulation change regarding repeated coursework may impact your financial aid eligibility and awards. Effective for the Fall 2011 semester, in order for a repeated course to be counted towards your enrollment status for financial aid purposes, you may only repeat a previously passed course once (a total of two attempts). If you enroll in a previously repeated and passed course for a third time, this course will not count towards your enrollment for financial aid purposes. For example, if you are enrolled in a total of 12 credit hours and 3 credits you have repeated in the past, you will only be considered enrolled in 9 hours for financial aid purposes. You may repeat a failed course only until it is passed. Your enrollment for financial aid purposes will be calculated accordingly.
