                                Students receiving a “C” or higher in a course may not receive payment a second time. If repeated as part of an educational program “load,” it may not be counted again for financial aid purposes.
Once you have attempted any units, (regardless of receiving financial aid or not), you are required to: (1) Complete 67% of *attempted units each semester, (2) Maintain a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA; and complete your education program within a 150% of the minimum required units for the program to meet the standards required to maintain Satisfactory Status for financial aid eligibility.
A financial aid warning allows for a student to maintain financial aid eligibility for the next semester after failing to meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards. A student who does not meet SAP after a warning period is no longer eligible. Warning does not apply to maximum unit timeframe. Some students will be automatically terminated based on previous academic history.
At PVC, 60 units is the maximum for most programs. Exceptions to this maximum may be considered by petitioning if one or more of the following occur:
A. Up to 30 units for remedial (non-degree applicable) coursework.
B. ESL courses necessary to prepare a student for college level course work.
Attempted and Completed Units
A. Attempted units are any units for which a grade of A, B, C, D, F, P, NP, CR, NC, I, IP or W is received after the last day to drop a class without a “W” grade. (Refer to your class schedule for specific dates)
B. Completed units are earned units with a grade of A, B, C, D, P or CR.
Repeated, Audited, Transfer, Consortium or Remedial Coursework
A. Financial Aid may be awarded for the cost of courses previously taken if the course is being taken to improve a sub-standard grade of D, F, NP or NC and any one class that was previously passed. Repeated units will count toward the 150% maximum units allowed.
B. All transfer courses from accredited institutions will be considered toward academic progress.
C. Courses funded through a consortium agreement are included in determining academic progress and attempted units.
D. Up to 30 semester units of remedial courses will be accepted in determining eligibility.
