Summer 2014 Financial Aid Application

Class Attendance May Effect Your Federal Aid

Many federal aid programs, like the Pell Grant, Iraq Afghanistan Service Grant and TEACH Grant awards, require class attendance for the courses you are enrolled and receiving grant funds.  If you are marked as “Not Attending” on the official class roster (e.g., 12th day of each fall and spring term), your award amounts may be reduced or cancelled based on the courses you have actually begun attending.  If you fail to begin attendance in all of the courses for which you are registered, you will have failed to establish eligibility for financial aid. In this situation, you will be required to repay all of the financial aid that you have received.
