Academic Foundations Course Limit
- Florida statutes state that if a student is admitted into an eligible program and takes remedial coursework within that program, the student can be considered a regular student.
- Federal regulations place a credit hour limit on the amount of remedial preparatory course work for which a student can attempt and continue to receive financial aid.
- A student may receive federal student aid for up to 30 credit hours of attempted remedial coursework.
- ESL courses do not count towards the 30 hours.
- Students who have attempted 30 or more remedial hours will be flagged for review by the Financial Aid office.
- If a student enrolls in additional remedial courses beyond the 30 credit hours, those additional credits will NOT be eligible for federal student aid.
- The enrollment status each term will be calculated excluding remedial hours and the student will be paid based on the non-remedial hours for which he/she is enrolled.
- Detailed information on college preparatory course limitations is available in the Financial Aid Office.
