Financial Aid Status

Financial Aid Warning Status

The Financial Aid Warning status is used for students who are not meeting (1) the overall GPA or (2) two-thirds (2/3) completion requirement for the first time. Students who are placed on financial aid warning are not required to appeal. Financial aid warning is an automatic grace period that allows students one term to satisfy the standards of academic progress. A student can be placed on warning only once.

Financial Aid Suspension Status

Students who are not making satisfactory progress at the end of the semester they are on Financial Aid Warning will be placed on Financial Aid Suspension and will not be eligible for financial aid until they are again making progress. Students may appeal if they have extraordinary circumstances.

Financial Aid Probation Status

All students who have been reinstated to financial aid eligibility through appeal are reinstated on a provisional basis. Students who are reinstated on provisional/probationary status and are expected to satisfy the standards of academic progress after one term of attendance will not require an academic

plan. Students who are reinstated on provisional/probationary status and are not expected to satisfy the standards of academic progress after one term of attendance will require an academic plan.

Provisional/probationary students for purposes of financial aid will continue to be eligible for financial aid as long as the students adhere to the reinstatement conditions and academic plan as outlined in the agreement.

The purpose of the academic plan is to ensure the students satisfy the standards of progress within a specified time period or are able to complete a program of study successfully within a specific time frame.
