Financial aid recipients must meet Satisfactory Academic Progress standards. Please review the College’s Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy and let us know if you have any questions.
If you officially or unofficially (drop-out) withdraw during a semester, the amount of financial aid that you have earned up to that point is calculated by a specific formula, known as Return of Title IV Aid. Federal regulations require Blue Ridge Community College to have a written policy for the refund and repayment of federal aid received by students who withdraw during a term for which payment has been received. These policies are effective only if the student completely terminates enrollment (i.e., cancels his/her registration, withdraws, or is dismissed) or stops attending classes before completing more than 60 percent of the enrollment period. If you receive more assistance than you earned, the excess funds must be returned. For more information click here
Yes, if you receive financial aid there is a requirement to attend class. If you are reported by your instructor as never attending class then your financial aid awards will be adjusted accordingly. So, make sure to go to class.
