Enrollment Status for Eligibility
Initially, your financial aid is based on your enrollment status at the time of registration. You should be aware, however, that your final award will be determined based on your enrollment status as of the end of the census date for each semester. Please refer to the attendance guidelines below as well as the Return of Funds Policy before you withdraw from classes to know how your financial aid will be affected. Contact the Financial Aid Office at 989-686-9080 if you have any additional questions.
The Delta College Financial Aid office recalculates Federal awards if the student’s enrollment status changes as of the census date for that semester. This policy is applied consistently to all students receiving Federal aid. Example- A student’s financial aid will be recalculated whose enrollment status increases from half-time to full-time, and it will be recalculated for a student whose enrollment status decreases.
Never Attended: If a student receives a grade of an F, W, or WI, Federal Title IV aid will be adjusted for those classes never attended. Example: A student is in four classes which are all three credit classes. The student receives three A grades and one F grade. The instructor reported that the student never attended the class that received the F grade. Aid will be adjusted from 12 credits (full time) to 9 credits (three-quarter time).
Complete Withdrawals: If a student receives only the following grades (F, W, or WI) without one passing grade, a return of Title IV calculation may have to be done. If attendance has not been achieved up through the 60 percent point of the semester, a calculation is done to determine the amount of the Title IV funds that the student has earned at the time of withdrawal. Once the 60 percent point of the semester passes, a student has earned 100 percent of Title IV funds and no calculation would be necessary.
Please refer to the additional financial aid policies for further information regarding your attendance and the effects on your federal financial aid.
