Restrictions on Eligibility

The following situations may affect your eligibility for financial aid.

Second Degree, Double Major, or Dual Enrollment

Students who are pursuing a second degree, a double major, or who is enrolled in a dual degree program may be eligible for federal financial aid as long as they continue to meet  Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements. If a student has already earned a bachelor’s degree and has been readmitted to the University to pursue another bachelor’s degree, financial aid will be limited to loans.  There are also some limitations to the student’s financial aid eligibility if the student has already earned an associate degree.  For more information, contact your campus Financial Aid Office.

Non-Degree Status

Students who are admitted with a non-degree status are ineligible for financial aid. To confirm your status, please contact your campus Financial Aid Office.

Enrollment at More Than One Institution

Students who enroll at more than one college or university during the same academic term may generally only receive aid from only one institution. For more information, contact your campus Financial Aid Office.

Repeated Courses

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 if they repeat a course that they previously failed (received a 0.0 or no pass), regardless of the number of times the course was attempted and failed.
  • A student who repeats a previously passed course one additional time may receive aid.
  • Once a student has completed any course twice with a passing grade, they are 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 regardless of whether the student received aid for earlier enrollments in the course.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
