Things you need to know!!!!!!

Withdrawing and Financial Aid:

Federal Financial Aid regulations require students to earn credit from classes funded by financial aid.  Financial aid regulations do not distinguish between receiving a “W” in a course, or an “F” in a course.  In both cases tuition is paid with financial aid funds and in both cases the student did not earn credit. Students, advisors, and instructors should note therefore that multiple withdraws can impede appropriate progress toward degree and thus negatively impact a student’s ability to retain financial aid.
