reimbursement, veterans’ benefits or vocational rehabilitation benefits. These types of aid require notification to the Financial Aid Office and completion of additional USF paper work. Students may take additional coursework at the same time they are completing the program. As this may affect financial aid allocations, DCP students should notify the Financial Aid Office for assistance. Students who take additional coursework after completing the program are subject to traditional enrollment criteria for financial aid eligibility and may receive federal aid for the additional courses needed to fulfill graduation requirements. If a student is interested in receiving financial aid after the program, he or she needs to notify the Financial Aid Office of his or her planned enrollment in order to receive a financial aid package. If additional funding assistance is needed, a monthly payment plan or private alternative loan options may be available. DCP students must maintain a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA and successfully complete 70 percent of attempted credits to remain eligible for financial aid. Satisfactory academic progress for financial aid is evaluated each term separately from academic policies.
