The Dallas College Office of Financial Aid will review academic records at the end of each period of enrollment and determine each student's Satisfactory Academic Progress status. A student who fails to meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress minimum standards for Pace of Progress or Cumulative GPA but has not exceeded the 'Maximum Time Frame' will be placed on Financial Aid Warning for one period of enrollment. If the student fails to attain the minimum standards for Pace of Progress or Cumulative GPA by the end of the Warning period, he or she will be placed on Financial Aid Suspension. As described in the policy above, a student who exceeds the 'Maximum Time Frame' and fails to maintain the minimum standards for Pace of Completion, Cumulative GPA or both will be placed on Financial Aid Suspension without a Warning period.
To regain financial aid eligibility, a student placed on Suspension must pay enrollment related expenses from personal resources until the minimum Satisfactory Academic Progress standards are met. The student's progress will continue to be reviewed at the end of each period of enrollment. Eligibility will automatically be reinstated for the next period of enrollment upon successful completion of a period of enrollment in which the student meets the required Satisfactory Academic Progress standards described in this policy.
