Changing credit hours? Keep in mind your financial aid.

December 2012

The flexibility to add or drop a class during the semester is just one of the things that make the ACCEL format unique.

It is important to remember however, that financial aid, such as Pell grants and loans, is determined by the number of credit hours a student intends to complete based on their registration at the beginning of a semester. If this number of credit hours changes during the semester, the student's financial aid will be adjusted to reflect the most current credit hours registered for the semester. It's important to keep in mind that an adjustment may mean the student will be required to return a portion of the aid rewarded for the semester.

Students are strongly encouraged to contact the Financial Aid Office at 563-333-6314 to find out how adding or dropping a class will impact their aid award before making any changes. As always, students are required to fill out a drop request form when dropping a class.

Please keep in mind that in an effort to have all students financial aid awarded in a timely manner, Beeline registration for the winterim/spring 2013 term will end on January 7, 2013. To register, add or drop classes for these terms after January 7, please contact your academic advisor.
