Federal regulations allow for financial aid funds to pay for one repetition of a previously passed course.
- For purposes of receiving Federal student aid funds (Title IV aid), the Department of Education considers a “D” grade or higher to be a passing grade even if a higher grade is needed to advance in the program or is required for a subsequent course.
Impact on Financial Aid
- Financial Aid Cost of Attendance is adjusted
- Grants that are calculated in part on the student’s enrollment level (full-time, ¾ time, ½ time, or less than ½ time) are adjusted if the student has dropped into a lower enrollment level
- Adjust any other financial aid as required.
Students who are impacted by this policy are notified via MaineStreet Message Center Communication and are sent an updated award notice if financial aid adjustments are required.
