Course Repeats and Financial Aid

Course Repeats and Financial Aid

If you are using financial aid to pay for school and you do not pass a course, there are certain situations in which Financial Aid will pay for you to attempt the course again. 

According to CSU-Global policy, the following grades are considered non-passing:

Undergraduate: 
  • "D" or "F" in a Major or Specialization Course
  • "F" in General Education or Elective Course
Graduate:
  • "D" or "F" in a Major or Specialization Course
  • Graduate students are only allowed to receive two (2) "C's" in their program so a third "C" would also be considered non-passing
Financial Aid will cover the retake of a non-passed course in the following situations:
  • You may receive financial aid when repeating a course that was failed ("F") or in which a withdrawal occurred (W), regardless of the number of times the course was failed (the SAP and Course Repeat policies still apply)
  • You may receive financial aid when repeating a course in which you earned a grade of "D" or "C" but financial aid will only cover one (1) additional attempt

For Example:

1st Attempt 2nd Attempt 3rd Attempt Eligible for FA?
F D Enrolled Yes
D C Enrolled No
D F Enrolled No
W F Enrolled Yes
D W Enrolled No
F F Enrolled Yes

Students should contact their student Advisor for more information on repeating courses and financial aid.
