The following is a recent change to federal regulations governing federal student aid programs.  This change may have an impact on the awarding of federal student aid for repeated coursework. 

  • A student may receive aid when repeating a course for the first time (course was previously failed or passed first time).
  • A student may receive aid when repeating a course that was previously failed , regardless of the number of times the course was attempted and failed.
  • A student may receive aid to repeat a previously passed course one additional time.
  • Once a student has completed any course twice with a passing grade, he/she is no longer eligible to receive aid for that course.
  • The federal regulation change applies whether or not the student received aid for earlier enrollments in the course.
