Per federal regulations, schools are required to review students who received federal financial aid but failed to earn passing grades. An assessment must be made to determine whether the student earned the non-passing grades while attending classes or stopped attending classes but did not officially withdraw. Students who stopped attending classes may be required to repay a portion of the federal financial aid for that semester. If it is determined that a student never began attendance in some or all classes, aid may be canceled completely. The review process must be completed within 30 days after the end of each semester. Any refund owed to a financial aid program is the student’s responsibility and will appear as a charge on the student’s next University invoice.
