Repeated Credits and impact on Financial Aid

Typically, below are guidelines for repeating classes and eligibility for aid for both federal and state aid. If repeating a course in which one of the grades below was received, that course cannot be counted in current enrollment when determining federal and state aid amounts. If the student is repeating a course because the College Catalog indicates they are required to for that major, the repeat will be allowed.
