General Policy Requirements
The Financial Aid Office is required to track your progress toward degree completion.
If your financial aid is in good standing, you will be eligible for financial aid funds
until you have attempted 125% of the published credits required for your stated certificate
or degree, the Maximum Timeframe. All attempted courses count for this calculation including
those with "I", "W" or "Z", 0.0 grades, repeated classes and transfer credits. You are limited
to 45 attempted remedial (under 100 level) credits.
Students who have attempted the maximum number of credits for their current degree or certificate
will be placed on Too Many Credits Hold and will not be eligible for any grants, loans or work study funding.
Check on the maximum credits for your Two Year Degree or Certificate, go to the SFCC website at
and click on apply for Financial Aid, then on Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy.
Students who have earned a bachelor's degree are automatically placed on Too Many Credits Hold. Students who have
received Ford Direct or Stafford loans as a junior or senior in college will also be placed on Too Many Credits hold.
