Financial Aid Suspension • Financial aid suspension is a cancellation/denial of awards or disbursements of financial aid. • The second time the minimum standard is not achieved; the student will be placed on financial aid suspension. • Students placed on academic suspension by the Registrar’s Office will automatically be placed on financial aid suspension. This financial aid status will continue should the student be granted permission to enroll after an academic suspension appeal.

Any developmental hours beyond this 30 hour limit will not be eligible for financial aid consideration. All developmental course work will be counted toward the maximum time frame. • All repeated course work will count toward the maximum time frame. • Transfer work: All transfer work, accepted for credit, will be counted towards the maximum time frame. Students will be required to have an appropriate advisor evaluate the transfer hours and certify on the DMC Transfer Credit Evaluation Form (TRCR), the number of transfer hours applicable towards their current educational objective.
