Reinstatement of Eligibility

If approved, the student must follow an academic plan in order to complete their program of study and retain aid eligibility. If not approved, the student may elect to file a grievance appeal for review in accordance to the college policy.* Veteran funding may be reinstated upon notification if student is notified by the Veteran Administration that the student has submitted sufficient documentation for reinstatement and if enrollment in subsequent terms increases cumulative grade point average to 2.0 or higher and % is greater than or equal to 67% of attempted credit hours.
* Veteran students who have submitted the Request for Certification of VA Benefits and do not have financial aid on file, will be allowed to defer their full tuition/fees without incurring a penalty or having to pay a payment plan fee.
