Students must meet Satisfactory Academic Progress standards in order to receive or continue to receive financial aid funded by the federal government, state, or the College. Students must complete 67% of attempted coursework and maintain the required G.P.A. as published in the College catalog. If you were awarded a merit-based scholarship, please refer to your scholarship contract for the minimum academic standards necessary. Visit our Satisfactory Academic Progress webpage for more information.
If a student receiving federal financial aid funds is convicted of any offense under any federal or state law involving the possession or sale of illegal drugs, during a period of enrollment for which that student was receiving Title IV, HEA program funds, he/she is subject to the loss of eligibility for any Title IV, HEA grant, loan, or work study assistance (HEA Sec. 484 ( r )(1)); (20 U.S.C. 1091 ( r )(1)). For more information, visit the Federal Student Aid webpage and select ‘Students with Criminal Convictions’ under the ‘Who Gets Aid’ tab.
If the student takes a leave of absence or withdraws from the College, the aid package may be adjusted in accordance with federal, state and institutional policy. We strongly recommend that a student contact a financial aid counselor BEFORE making a final decision regarding any such change. Visit our Withdrawal/Leave of Absence webpage for more information.
