Add/Drop, Census, and Late Start 课程

学期一开始, there is a short period of time called “Add/Drop,” typically only the first week of classes, when students are allowed to make schedule changes.  一旦添加/删除结束, 注册主任和助学金办公室为所有学生拍摄注册情况.  This is called the “census” or “enrollment freeze” date.  财政援助的支付是基于人口普查日期冻结的入学学分.

如果学生认为他/她未能达到最低的令人满意的学业进步标准是由于不寻常或特殊的情况影响了成功的进步, the student may appeal to the 金融援助 Office. Some personal mitigating circumstances could include illness or injury of the student or dependent of the student; a death in the family; or other undue hardship as the result of special circumstances. An appeal form is available in the 金融援助 Office.

To provide consistency in decision-making, 财务援助署长会在收到上诉表格后,及时作出上诉决定. The student must: 1) explain the extenuating circumstances causing the non-compliance; 2) substantiate it with third party documentation, (i.e. letter from the doctor who treated the student); and 3) give a detailed explanation of specifically what has changed that will allow satisfactory progress to be demonstrated at the next evaluation. If the appeal is approved, the student will be eligible and given a status of 金融援助 Probation. Students must continue to pass all classes to remain eligible.

  • Register and successfully complete a minimum of six (6) credits; and
  • Successfully complete these courses with a minimum GPA of 2.0.

At the end of the semester, grades will be evaluated. If the student has met the required terms of the academic plan, the student may continue to receive financial aid the following semester. 在之后的任何一个学期,学生不符合学业计划的条款, 在满足学业进展的最低要求之前,学生将没有资格参加经济援助项目. 学生的学习进度将在每个学期结束时继续被监控,直到学生符合CT社区学院令人满意的学习进度政策.

如果学生的申诉被拒绝,而该学生已经注册了下一个学期, the student is responsible for any monies owed to the college. 如果学生支付下学期的学费,并且顺利完成所有课程,平均成绩为2.0 or better, the student may appeal again after that semester.
