The Minimum Standards
- Students must maintain 2.00 GPA (cumulative) and complete at least 67% of their attempted coursework (cumulative).
- Students must also be progressing through their educational program within a set time frame. Once you reach 60 credits attempted at the college, we expect that you are close to completing your 2-year degree and will notify you by email. You will be asked to meet with an advisor to complete a Financial Aid Degree Completion Form to determine how many credits you have left to graduate. Given this information, the Financial Aid Office will review your academic history to determine how much financial aid eligibility you have remaining. Click on this link for the form:

Failure To Meet The Minimum Standards
You will be ineligible for financial aid and placed on “Suspension” status. You can re-apply for financial aid again once you have brought your academic standing to the minimum standards above.
Students can appeal their suspension status in certain situations:
– If there were unusual/extraordinary circumstances that caused you to fall below academic standards;
– If there were circumstances beyond your control;
– If you have taken measures to improve your situation or if you can show that you have improved your grades;
You may submit an appeal to the Financial Aid Office. Please note: Under federal guidelines, there will be certain situations where the Financial Aid Office may not be able to consider your appeal. Each case is individual and will depend on a review of your entire academic history at the college.
