Fees are automatically deducted from an award when a student registers for classes. Any balance owed must be paid at the cashier's window, RAB-52, by the published deadline; otherwise the courses will be dropped. If there is a balance remaining after fees are deducted, students will receive a refund delivered via the method chosen through the BankMobile Refund Selection Kit.
Students will be monitored for a cumulative minimum required GPA and completed credit/hours at the end of every term. Satisfactory academic progress is required for the award to remain intact for the next term. Students who complete zero credits/hours will be denied further aid.
