Here are some tips:

  • Discuss academic/career goals with your advisor making sure you're in the appropriate major.
  • Run the academic requirement report to see what courses are needed to complete your major.
  • Check out the Student Self-Service tile on MyPath.

Repeating Classes and Financial Aid Eligibility Regulations

Federal financial aid regulations limit the number of times a student may repeat a course and receive federal financial aid for that course.

  • A student is allowed to repeat the same course and receive federal financial aid until a D grade or better is earned for the class.
  • Once the student has achieved a D grade or better, a student can repeat the same course a second time and still receive federal financial aid.

Examples: Repeating a class could reduce your overall financial aid eligibility.
