The following notice is meant to inform students taking online classes about an important change in federal financial aid regulations.
In an online class, eligibility for financial aid is based on student participation. Simply logging in to the course does not by itself constitute participation. Examples of participation include, but are not limited to, posting to the discussion board, submitting an assignment, taking an assessment, or emailing the instructor about the course.
Students who do not participate will not be able to collect financial aid for an online class.
