Regaining financial aid eligibility

Appealing loss of financial aid eligibility

Failure to maintain good academic standing may be the result of circumstances beyond the student's control. In cases of illness, injury, a death in the family or unusual circumstance, students may appeal their loss of financial aid eligibility to continue their financial aid by filing an Academic Progress Petition to request reinstatement of financial aid.

The appeal form (Academic Progress Petition) is available online and in the Financial Aid Office. Students must show they are able to complete their programs with a minimum 2.0 GPA in the allowed time-frame in order for the appeal (petition) to be approved.

If reinstated, they may be asked to develop an educational plan which may include enrolling part-time or taking developmental course work. After an appeal has been approved, students will be placed on probation status, and they must restore their good academic standing within one quarter.

Students may NOT file another appeal (Academic Progress Petition) for lack of academic progress at the end of a probationary quarter.

The last day to submit a completed appeal is by the 5th day of the quarter. They will be reviewed by the 10th day of the quarter, and students will be notified with the decision via email. For summer quarter, appeals should be completed during the first week of the quarter or sooner.

Reinstatement of financial aid eligibility

Unless an appeal is approved, students who have not maintained satisfactory academic progress are not eligible for financial aid. Students are required to pay their own tuition. To reinstate financial aid eligibility a student must:

Successfully complete all classes (see below for minimum credits needed) in a subsequent quarter with a 2.0 GPA or higher, with no dropped classes. The cumulative GPA must be at least 2.0 at the end of the second academic year (six quarters) regardless of enrollment level. Students must be able to successfully complete their programs of study within the allowed financial aid timeframe.

If enrolled the prior quarter for 12 or more credits, they must enroll, pay for, and successfully complete 6 or more credits. If enrolled the prior quarter for 11 credits or less, students must enroll, pay for, and successfully complete 5 or more credits (without dropping any classes).

Please notify the Financial Aid Office as soon as you believe you have satisfied the above requirement so that your eligibility status can reviewed.

Financial Aid Transition to ctcLink

As of summer quarter, all Financial Aid operations have fully transitioned to ctcLink. Due to the high volume of applications our office has received, it may take several weeks to process students' aid and see an update on their status in ctcLink.  Once their aid has been processed, students can view their aid offer in the financial aid tile in ctcLink. We appreciate your patience at this time.
