Federal Regulations specify that students may receive federal financial aid funding for one repetition of a previously passed course. The regulation limits the number of times a student may repeat a course and receive federal financial aid for that course.

Examples of repeated coursework that MAY count towards a student's enrollment status for purposes of determining federal financial aid eligibility are listed below:

  • Repeated coursework may be included if the student withdrew (W) or received a failing grade (F). A student may repeat a failed course until it is passed.
  • Repeated coursework may be included when determining enrollment status in a term-based program if a student needs to meet an academic standard for a particular passed course, such as a minimum grade.  Ex: Student received a "D" in a course which requires a minimum grade of "C" for his/her major.

Examples of repeated coursework that MAY NOT count towards a student's enrollment status for the purpose of determining federal financial aid eligibility are listed below:

  • Retaking a passed course more than once.  If a student receives a "D" in a course and decides to repeat the course to improve his/her GPA, he/she may repeat this passed course ONE time.  However, if the student wants to repeat it a second time, the course would not count towards the student's enrollment status.

NOTES:

  • All repeated courses affect financial aid satisfactory academic progress calculations, regardless of whether the student received financial aid or not, all repeated coursework must be counted as attempted credits.
  • Certain course descriptions listed in the Salisbury University Catalog may state that a specific course "must be repeated for degree" or "may be repeated for credit if content differs" (a student may receive financial aid for these courses, regardless if a passing grade has been received, as long as the course content is different).
  • This regulation applies whether or not the student received aid for the earlier enrollments in the course.
