Dropping Classes

Students who receive Federal Grants and withdraw or stop attending classes that they received the grant for may be required to repay some or all of the funds.  Failure to repay the amount by the deadline given will result in future aid being canceled/denied. 

Additionally, students who receive any type of federal student aid and drop and or stop attending all their classes will be responsible to repay any portion of aid the college is required to return to the Department of Education as a result of them withdrawing or stop attending from classes.

Students are encouraged to check with financial aid on the impact of dropping classes prior to actually dropping them.
