Repeat Coursework Policy

The US Department of Education has passed a regulation which impacts repeated courses.  The regulation states that students may only receive federal financial aid for ONE repetition of a previously passed course.  These regulations prohibit the University from paying for a course that has been passed more than one time.

The following chart demonstrates the different enrollment scenarios and their effects on financial aid (FA) eligibility:

There is no limit on the number of attempts allowable for the student to repeat a course, as long as he/she does not receive a passing grade in any of the previously repeated courses.

If you are enrolled in a course that was previously repeated (at least twice) and received a passing grade, you will be ineligible for Title IV aid to cover the repeated class taken for the third time.  For example, if you are enrolled in a total of 12 credit hours and 3 credits you have repeated and passed previously, you will only be considered enrolled in 9 hours for financial aid purposes. 

Repeated courses can impact a student’s renewal eligibility for programs with specific grade and hour requirements such as institutional and state grants and scholarships. 

To review the minimum hours required for each financial aid program, please refer to the Program Eligibility Chart at finaid.ucf.edu/receiving/pec.html.
