Financial Aid Rights & Responsibilities

With financial aid, comes both rights and responsibilities. It is important to understand what is associated with being a financial aid applicant, recipient, and a student loan borrower. We encourage you to take a few moments to review them here.

Financial Aid Rights and Responsibilities

  • Student have the right to accept or refuse any part of their financial aid offer. If the student rejects any part of his/her financial aid offered, it may affect other aid offered.
  • Students may not receive financial aid from more than one college while enrolled at two or more colleges at the same time. 
  • Classes taken outside of a student's declared program do not qualify for most forms of financial aid.
  • Students must attend college at least half time (six undergraduate credit hours or five graduate credit hours) to be considered for most financial aid.
  • Withdrawal from classes or failure to attend all classes may result in a loss or reduction of financial aid and a balance due to the College.
  • It is the student’s responsibility to inform Financial Aid of any changes to information provided on the financial aid application. Students should contact the OneStop Office to report these changes.
  • Financial aid offered to the student is dependent upon the availability of funds. Any change in the availability of funds or a student’s academic performance may change the financial aid offer.
  • If a student’s financial aid application is estimated or incomplete, the student will be responsible for any charges that may occur if the estimated financial aid indicated is incorrect or the application remains incomplete.
  • Information regarding a student and/or parent Title IV-HEA loan will be submitted to the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) and accessible by authorized agencies, lenders, and institutions.
