Gainful Employment Data

Remember, you don't have to be a full time student in order to receive aid however, your aid is based on the units/classes you notify us about prior to the start of each semester.

As a financial aid recipient you should be aware of refund requirements. Students who receive federal financial aid funds and withdraw from one or more classes will have to repay some or all of the funds received.

Points To Remember

You may be required to return all or a portion of your financial aid refund If:

  • You completed the semester with ALL non-passing grades (any combination of F's, W's and NP's).
  • You dropped your classes.
  • You were administratively excluded from your classes.

If it becomes necessary for you to withdraw from all of your classes, please stop by the financial aid office to discuss your situation so that you are fully aware of the consequences of this action. In the event you still need to withdraw from your courses and/or owe money to the college, state or Department of Education, The Business Office will be available to discuss your repayment options.
