Effect of warning and termination status

Good Academic Standing (2.0 GPA or higher) and completion of credit level

  • Students must continue to complete attempted credits and maintain a 2.0 quarterly GPA to receive aid.
  • If struggling, contact your academic advisor or the Financial Aid Office as soon as possible to find out how we can assist you.

Warning Status (GPA = 1.5 to 1.99) and/or reduction in completed credit level

  • Students on warning status are eligible to receive aid for the following quarter.
  • Students are placed on warning status for not completing their attempted credits (as noted on the chart) and/or having a quarterly GPA between 1.5 and 1.99.
  • Students are allowed only two warnings (Associate Degree), a third quarter of warning will make students ineligible for aid. BAS students may have two more warnings at the junior/senior level.
  • The two warnings cannot be back-to-back.  Back-to-back warnings will result in termination of eligibility.

Termination Status (GPA = 0.0 to 1.49)

  • Students are NOT eligible to receive grants, loans or work-study funds.
  • Because quarterly GPA and credits completed determine a student's academic standing, termination status can occur after the first quarter of attendance. Warning status does not necessarily occur before termination.
  • If students have had two quarters of warning status, they will lose financial aid eligibility the next time classes are dropped or the quarterly GPA falls below 2.0.  The two warning quarters cannot be back-to-back. During the junior and senior years, a Baccalaureate Degree student will lose financial aid eligibility with a third warning.
  • If students completely withdraw either officially or unofficially after the fifth class day of the quarter and complete "0" credits, they will lose eligibility for financial aid.  Repayment of all or part of the grant funds (used for tuition and fees or disbursed to the student) may also be required if students did not earn the aid received.
  • Dropped classes during the 100% refund period are non-punitive if all financial aid funds, including any funds refunded to the student, are recovered.
  • If students fail to complete the required credits indicated on the chart, the quarterly GPA drops below 1.5, or the cumulative GPA is less than 2.0 at the end of the second academic year (six quarters), students will lose eligibility for aid.
  • If students do not complete their programs of study within the allowed timeframe, their eligibility for aid will expire.
