Satisfactory Academic Standing/Progress and Financial Aid Eligibility

A student will be placed on Financial Aid Warning after two consecutive terms on Academic and/or Clinical Probation.  During the Financial Aid Warning term a student will receive any federal financial aid for which she or he is otherwise eligible.  If the Academic or Clinical Probation is not resolved at the end of the Financial Aid Warning term, the student will be required to meet with the Student Affairs Committee.  If allowed to continue in the program, he/she will be placed on Financial Aid Probation and is eligible for one more term of federal financial aid.  At the end of the Financial Aid Probation term, the student, who has not been removed from Academic and/or Clinical Probation and is allowed to continue in the program, will no longer be eligible for federal financial assistance.

Once Academic and/or Clinical Probation is resolved or the specified modified program requirements are met, the Financial Aid Warning or Probation is lifted.  The student may regain eligibility for federal financial aid after all issues are resolved.

Please refer to the Financial Aid Handbook for further details.
