I have just received the email regarding "New 2011-2012 SAP Policy - Federal Aid Eligibility". I do not understand exactly what is factored into the "150% of the normal time required". Does this mean "attempted" credits, including withdrawls are counted towards the maximum 180 credits allowed? This semester I had to handle a 4 week medical emergency with my daughter and I needed to withdraw from 3 classes rather than fail. (of course I have "hospital emergency" documentation) But is this something that can cancel my Federal Aid for Spring 2012? I am a transfer student and prior to this semester I show an "overall" attempted 104/passed 95 of credits.
If your program is 120 credit hours, this would be multiplied by 150% and you would have up to 180 total attempts (this includes all coursework attempted) to receive your degree and maintain financial aid eligibility. All coursework for the fall 2011 will be reviewed after the fall grades are posted for continued eligibility for the spring 2012 semester. Students who are in jeopardy or in their "warning" semester will be notified by mail and what steps to take to resolve the issue.
