Renewal of financial aid is not automatic. All students, including scholarship recipients, must each year complete and mail the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), or the renewal FAFSA, if they are to be considered for financial aid. Eligibility for financial aid depends on whether a student is making satisfactory academic progress. This is defined by the number of credit hours attempted, credits earned, and cumulated GPA at the end of each year. The number of course credit hours attempted includes all courses for which a grade of A, B, C, D, F or P was received, plus courses where the result was a designation of WA, WD or I. Repeated courses are counted as attempted each time taken; however, only the most recent quality points earned are included in the calculation of the GPA. Students who have not made satisfactory academic progress are placed on financial aid probation for two consecutive semesters, during which time they may continue to receive federal and state financial aid. Federal and state aid are only available for the first 180 credit hours attempted by a student. Students who become part-time (fewer than 12 credit hours) as a result of dropping courses should be aware that their financial aid may be adjusted. To be eligible for state and federal financial aid, part-time students must be enrolled for at least 6 credit hours each semester and must earn 10 credit hours during an academic year. A part-time student's cumulative GPA may be no lower than 1.5 after the first four semesters, 1.70 during the next four semesters and 1.90 during the next four. After the sixth year (twelfth semester) a part-time student must have achieved and must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0. "
