Restrictions on Eligibility

Second Degree

Students are eligible for federal aid if they are pursuing double majors or dual-degree programs as long as they meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements. If a student has earned a bachelor’s degree and has re-entered college to pursue another bachelor's degree, financial aid is limited to loans.  Also, there are some limitations if the student has already earned an Associate degree.  For more information, contact the Financial Aid Office. 

Non-Degree Status

A student admitted with a non-degree status is ineligible for financial aid.  To confirm your status please contact the Financial Aid Office. 

Enrollment at More Than One Institution

Students who enroll at more than one college or university at the same time generally may generally only aid from only one institution. For more information, contact the Financial Aid Office.

Repeated Courses

A federal regulation limits the number of times a student may repeat a course and receive financial aid for that course.

  • A student may receive aid when repeating a course that was previously failed (received a 0.0 or No pass), 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.
  • If a student retakes a course that is not aid eligible, a recalculation of aid is done to exclude the credits for the repeated course.
  • This rule applies whether or not the student received aid for earlier enrollments in the course.
