Understanding the Consequences of an "F" grade

Student financial aid recipients who receive one or more "F" grades resulting from absence, may have their aid adjusted.

Students who are financial aid recipients and receive one or more "F" grades resulting from lack of attendance may have their aid adjusted. An instructor is responsible for reporting a student’s last day of attendance if the student quit attending before the end of the semester. This is considered an unofficial drop. 

An unofficial drop could result in repaying part or all of the federal and/or state student aid funds you received

If your Federal Pell Grant has been disbursed and then you unofficially drop credits, your grants will always be adjusted if you drop below full-time. Your student Bursar account will be debited for the difference.

If all of your grades in a semester are "F"

If you earn all "F" grades from non-attendance within a semester, your aid will be adjusted according to federal regulations and you will be required to repay part or all of the federal and/or state student aid funds you received that semester.

If you receive all “F” grades from never attending, all federal and/or state aid will be cancelled.
