Federal Repeat Coursework Policy

In order to receive federal financial aid funds for a repeat course, a previously passed course may be repeated only ONE time and the student may receive Title IV federal funds for a repeated course only one time. Subsequent repeats will not be counted in the student's enrollment level for Title IV funds.

A course is considered passed if the student receives a grade of D or better. If the student does not receive a passing grade, there is no limit on the number of attempts. A student may repeat a failed or withdrawn course until it is passed. However, a student who earns a passing grade in a course and chooses to retake the course a second time, earning a grade of "F", may not take the course a third time. On the contrary, a student who earns a passing grade in a course and chooses to retake the course a second time earning a grade of "W" may retake the course a third time. 

All repeat courses affect financial aid satisfactory academic progress calculations. A repeated course along with the original attempt will be counted as attempted credits.
