Repeat Course Work Policy
Federal financial aid allows a student to repeat and receive federal financial aid ONE-TIME when repeating an initially passed course. It also allows students to use federal financial aid to repeat previously failed courses until a passing grade is received. All credit hours attempted will be counted in Satisfactory Academic Progress calculations. The repeated course will also count as part of a student’s enrollment status for the payment period they are repeating. Only classes which will count toward meeting degree requirements are eligible for financial aid.
Repeating a FAILED Course
Federal guidance allows students to use Federal aid to repeat previously failed coursework; however, the credit hours of any failed course will be counted in Satisfactory Academic Progress (Graduate) calculations. The repeated course will also count as part of a student’s enrollment status for the payment period they are repeating.
Repeating a PASSED Course
If a matriculated student is repeating a previously PASSED course, federal guidance allows student to repeat and receive aid ONE-TIME. All hours of any courses attempted will count in all Satisfactory Academic Progress calculations. Students are encouraged to contact not only their academic advisor regarding PSU academic consequences but also a member of the Financial Aid Team if they are planning to repeat any coursework. They will want to be sure they understand how retaking courses will be treated by PSU academics as well as financial aid as required by federally mandated Satisfactory Academic Progress policies.
