Updated information regarding Financial Aid and re-taking courses.
Financial aid will not pay for a student to take a course more than twice. Please review your schedules and if you are retaking a course more than twice, your Federal Financial Aid (Federal Pell Grant, SEOG Grant & Federal Direct Student Loans) will not pay for the course. Please make payment arrangements with the cashier's office to pay for those courses.
IMPORTANT UPDATE CONCERNING PELL GRANT ELIGIBILITY
In December 2011 President Obama signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012 (Public Law 112-74). This law has significantly impacted the Pell Grant Program.
Beginning in Fall 2012, students are now limited to 12 semesters or (600%) of Pell Grant eligibility during their lifetime. This change effects all students regardless of when or where they received their first Pell Grant.
Students that are currently receiving the Pell Grant in the academic year 2011-2012 and have already used the 600% of Pell grant eligibility will no longer be eligible to receive Pell starting Fall 2012.
If you have attended college for 4 years or longer, receiving Pell Grant each year, you are likely to exhaust or have already exhausted your lifetime eligibility of 12 semesters.

The percentages are based off the annual award at full-time enrollment status. For students with an annual 2011-2012 academic year, at the maximum award, $5,550 and attended 12 or more credit hours in two semesters (Fall and Winter for example), the percentage used for the 2011-2012 academic year is 100%.
