Financial Aid Policy Regarding Repeat Coursework
Changes in federal regulations impact how financial aid can be used for
classes taken more than once.
You CAN receive financial aid:
- Only one additional time to repeat a course that has already been passed (D- or higher). Any repeated attempts after that will not be eligible
for financial aid. Note that this applies even if you earn a failing grade (F) during the second attempt (see Example A below).
- As many times as necessary to repeat a course in which the only previous
grade earned has been a failing grade (F) (see Example B below).
All courses previously taken, even if financial aid was not used, are
compared against the current semester to determine if it is a repeated class and
whether it can be paid for using financial aid. Your financial aid may be
recalculated if you take a class that is not eligible for financial aid. This
policy does not provide exceptions if the repeat courses are taken in order to meet plan
of study grade requirements, i.e. a grade of C or higher must be earned to count
towards your major.
A repeated course (along with the original attempt) must be counted towards
maximum time frame & completion rate. See the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy

The following action will occur near the Census Date (See Important Dates):
- If a student retakes a course that is not aid eligible, a recalculation of
aid will be done to exclude the credits for the repeated course.
- Not all aid will require adjustment. Students may see the adjustment on
their aid offers by viewing awards in MyFVTC.
- Students will receive notification if they are aid applicants and attempt to
repeat coursework beyond the limits. Adjustments to financial aid and
notification of such will occur near the Census Date. This may result in the student being responsible for payment of the class tuition.
