- What is the difference between "dropping" and "withdrawing" from a class?
- Students may adjust their schedule (add/drop classes) through the 100% tuition refund period. If you change your schedule during this period, you are adding and/or dropping classes and there is no academic or financial aid penalty. At the end of the refund period each semester, your schedule is locked and you are required to earn a certain minimum of those credit hours, as detailed in the Satisfactory Academic Progress policy. Generally, your semester award will not be adjusted up or down.
- How does my academic performance affect my financial aid?
- According to federal regulations, students must maintain satisfactory academic progress in order to continue receiving financial aid. Failure to earn certain minimum credit hours and/or grade point averages can cause a student to lose financial aid eligibility.
