There are several rules that govern a student's eligibility for financial aid funds. Here are some of the reasons a student would lose financial aid:

1. Enroll in ineligible courses/programs.
  • Not all courses qualify for financial assistance. Cisco Network Associate, Computer Support Associate, Advanced Electrical Automotive, Database Associate course and non-credit course are examples of courses that do not qualify for financial aid.
2. Fail to attend class.
  • Attendance is required.
  • Aid cannot be paid for courses the student does not attend.
  • You're responsible for tuition and fees for the course(s) even if you fail to attend.

3. Audit classes.

  • Courses taken as audits do not qualify for financial aid.

4. Withdrawing from all courses prior to the eleventh week of the semester.

  • May be required to repay a portion of the financial aid funds received (known as a Return of Title IV).
  • You can avoid repayment if you remain in attendance in at least one course through the eleventh week of the semester. The last date to attend is posted on campus.

5. Do not complete the course(s) successfully.

  • If you don't maintain the minimum required GPA, or fail or withdraw from courses, you could jeopardize the opportunity to receive financial aid. (See Satisfactory Academic Progress.)
