Repeat Course Policy for Financial Aid (undergraduates):
Effectively July 1, 2011, changes in federal regulations requires theOffice of Financial Aid to monitor and adjust a student's enrollment level for Title IV aid if, or when, courses are repeated for which credit has already been earned.
The policy allows a student to receive financial aid under the following situations:
- To repeat any failed or withdrawn courses until a passing grade is received
- To repeat one time for a grade any course for which a passing grade was previously received
Once a student receives a passing grade of 'D' or better, the student may attempt the class one additional time for a grade.
A passing grade is defined as a 'D' or better including the grade of 'P.'
A grade is defined as any grade excluding 'W.'
Please note that the repeated course policy for financial aid is separate from the institutional academic repeated course policy.
