Financial Aid Termination & Appeal Policy

Financial Aid Termination Policy
If a student fails to meet the standards of satisfactory academic progress at the end of the probationary semester period, a dismissal letter from the financial aid program will be issued to the student. The termination status will include a letter informing the student of the Reinstatement and Appeal Process.

Financial Aid Appeal & Reinstatement Policy
At the time when the student meets the minimum satisfactory academic progress requirements, the student financial aid eligibility will be automatically reinstated. If a student has extenuating circumstances that prevent him/her from making academic progress toward a degree, an appeal may be submitted to the Office of Financial Aid as soon as the student receives official notification or 3 weeks before the end of the semester. The Financial Aid Office will review and consider appeals for extenuating circumstances such as a death in the family, a serious medical illness (personal or immediate family), accident, house fire, or other special circumstances.
