Change in Enrollment
Students are considered full-time with 12 or more credits, three-quarter time with 9 to 11 credits, half-time with 6 to 8 credits, and less than half-time with 1 to 5 credits. Financial Aid is generally awarded based on the assumption that you will be full-time. If you enroll for less than full-time, your awards may be adjusted. In order to be eligible for a Federal Direct Loan and the Tuition Aid Grant (TAG), you must be enrolled and maintain at least 6 credits each term.
Students aid will be continuously adjusted until the last day of the add/drop period. Some reasons student aid can be adjusted:
- Student chooses to drop a course
- A course was cancelled by the college
- The instructor reports a student as a N/A (never attended)
- Student has repeated the course
