Financial Aid Academic Review Process

Financial Aid Academic Review Process

If an appeal is approved for GPA and/or Pace, you remain on financial aid probation and must meet the terms of your academic plan(s) to receive aid in subsequent quarters.  The Financial Aid and Scholarship office reviews academic progress at the end of each quarter before aid will be released while you are on probation.  This end of quarter review will determine the following:

  • If deficit(s) have been made up, financial aid eligibility is regained and you are no longer on probation.

  • If the terms of the academic plan are met, but deficit(s) are not yet made up, the next quarter’s aid will be released.  You will remain on probation and be subject to review again before any subsequent quarter’s aid can be released.

  • If the terms of the academic plan are not met, financial aid eligibility is lost.  If you have a new special circumstance, you may submit a new appeal for aid consideration.  If there are no new circumstances, then you must regain eligibility to receive financial aid.

The limited time between quarters does not always allow for the Financial Aid and Scholarship Office to notify students of the review outcome before the start of the next quarter. We will do everything possible to give students timely notification.  Prior to notification, if you know that you did not meet the terms of the appeal and  you are unable to finance your education without financial aid, then you may want to consider other options (including a withdrawal) as soon as possible to ensure minimal financial impact. Again we recommend you work with your Academic Adviser to assist with any such transition plan or other options.
