Students selected for verification by the Department of Education will also be required to submit: 1) a signed copy of the family's (student and spouse for independent students; student and parents if dependent) most recent federal income tax return transcript, 2) an Institutional Verification Form (IVF), and 3) a signature page, to the Financial Aid Office.. These documents may be obtained from the Howard College website or the Financial Aid Office.. Students who receive federal, state, and institutional financial assistance must meet certain requirements to maintain eligibility for aid.. Each financial aid recipient shall be evaluated at the end of each semester.. There are three standard elements in complying with satisfactory academic progress (SAP) set by federal regulations.. If any or all are not met, the student will be on financial aid warning.. Financial aid warning will allow the student one semester to achieve the satisfactory academic progress requirements, while still receiving financial aid.. These requirements are described below.. Successful Completion Requirements:.. Students must receive credit for a minimum total number of hours enrolled based on the following: full-time students enrolled in 12 credit hours or more must earn a minimum of 10 credit hours; three quarter time students enrolled in 9-11 credit hours must earn a minimum of 9 credit hours; half-time students enrolled in 6-8 credit hours must earn a minimum of 6 credit hours; and less than half-time students enrolled in 5 credit hours or less will be required to earn all hours attempted.. Grades of "I", "W", and "F" will not satisfy the course completion requirements.. Grade Point Average Requirement:.. All students will be expected to acquire a 2.. 0 grade point average on all work completed each semester to remain in good academic standing.. T.. ime Frame Requirement:.. All students attending Howard College/SWCID and receiving federal or state financial aid funds will have a time frame in which to complete their degree requirements.. This time frame is the equivalent of 150 percent of the published length of the individual program.. Please see chart below for limitations on each degree:.. Degree/Certificate.. Hours to complete requirements.. Maximum covered by financial aid.. Associate of Arts.. 90.. Associate of Science.. Associate of Applied Science.. 60-72.. 90-108.. Certificate Level I.. 15-42.. 29-80.. Certificate Level II.. 42-59.. 80-112.. Clock Hour Programs:.. Students will be expected to complete a minimum of 50% of the clock hours required to complete the program by the end of the mid-point of the 150% time frame.. Students reaching the maximum number of hours attempted for their degree will not be eligible for federal or state financial aid.. These students will be placed on immediate suspension based on the time frame limitation.. This time frame will include any semester that the student was enrolled.. even if the student did not receive financial aid.. It will also include any transfer work that is applied to the student's program of study and posted to their transcript.. Periods of enrollment may be converted to semesters for non-consecutive enrollment.. Students that have earned 30 credits or more will be REQUIRED to submit an updated degree audit (plan) to the Financial Aid Office.. Additionally, this degree plan should be reviewed by the academic advisor and the student each semester to ensure that the student is remaining on track to complete the approved degree plan.. Students taking courses outside of their degree plan will not receive financial aid for those courses.. A course previously completed with a grade of "D" or above.. cannot be used when determining financial aid eligibility, enrollment status, or satisfactory progress.. EXCEPTION: An exception can only be made if the repeat is required by the program of study as documented by the faculty advisor/counselor.. Only one repeat is allowed under this circumstance.. Conversely, Howard College may not pay a student for retaking previously passed courses if the student is required to retake those courses because they failed a different course.. For example, a student enrolls in four classes in the fall semester and passed three of them and fails one.. The school requires the student to retake the three classes because they failed the one class.. The student retakes all four classes in the spring semester.. The failed class would be counted towards the student's enrollment status (and could have Title IV aid awarded for it), but the three classes previously passed in the fall would not be counted towards the student's enrollment status and would not be eligible for aid.. Students enrolled in the same course three or more times.. will not receive financial aid funding for that specific course.. NOTE: Students who are required to take developmental/preparatory course work are limited to 30 semester hours of financial aid eligibility for these classes.. CHANGING MAJORS.. Students receiving financial aid will be limited to one major change per academic year.. A maximum of 3 changes will be accepted for the duration of your enrollment at Howard College / SWCID.. Request for a major change will need to be submitted with all required signatures before the first class day of the semester.. Progression within a program will not be considered a major change and therefore will not count against the student's limitation of degree changes.. For example, LVN to RN degree or certificate program to degree program in the same major area.. Students with multiple major changes prior to implementation of policy will be reviewed on an individual basis.. Exceptions to this policy may be made by an appeals process at the discretion of Director of Financial Aid, Executive Vice President, Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs, and your assigned Academic Advisor.. Students not meeting conditions above may be placed on financial aid warning.. Students who do not meet the above requirements during the next semester of attendance following their financial aid warning will be placed on financial aid suspension.. This suspension will be enforced the next semester of enrollment and no federal or state awards will be made.. Students must enroll and successfully complete at least 6 credit hours to achieve satisfactory academic progress.. If a student chooses to enroll in more than 6 credit hours, they must successfully complete ALL attempted hours.. Grades of an "I", "W", and "F" will not satisfy the course completion requirements.. After the student has achieved satisfactory academic progress, the student will be placed on financial aid warning for the next semester of attendance.. When a student loses financial aid eligibility because they failed to make satisfactory academic progress, they may appeal that result on the basis of: an injury or illness, the death of a relative, or other special circumstance.. If a student feels that one of these exceptions applies to them, he/she should submit a suspension appeal form to their financial aid office.. The appeal must explain why they failed to make satisfactory progress and what has changed in their situation that will allow them to make satisfactory academic progress during the next semester.. The Director/Associate Director of Financial Aid will review all pertinent information regarding the situation and may grant a suspension appeal.. If the student is dissatisfied with the decision of the Director/Associate Director of Financial Aid, the case may be referred to the Financial Aid Committee for a decision.. Final decision will then be left to the Financial Aid Committee.. If  ...   an Associate's Degree in May 2001 or later and enrolls towards a higher degree can qualify for the TEXAS Grant program.. A student in this program must enroll at least 3/4 time in a higher level undergraduate degree program and must enroll within 12 months of completion of the associate degree.. The academic standards are completion of at least 75 percent of the hours taken in the prior year, and a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.. 5.. A student who maintains eligibility will continue to receive the award up to 90 credit hours, four years, or upon completion of a bachelor's degree, whichever comes first..

This program is for students that do not qualify under the TEXAS Grant program and are attending a public community college, technical college, or public Texas institution.. A student must be enrolled at least half-time in the first 30 hours towards an Associate Degree or certificate program at a public two-year institution of higher education.. The family's Expected Family Contribution (EFC) must be no more than $2,000..

Courses dropped for reasons that are determined by the institution beyond the control of the student shall not be counted..
