FINANCIAL AID POLICIES HANDBOOK 2015-2016
Renewal of Financial Aid
Students may continue to receive financial aid at CC provided the following requirements are met:
Application for renewal of financial aid is submitted by the renewal filing date prior to the academic year for which aid is requested. All students must submit a new or a renewal FAFSA application each year. Other documents such as the PROFILE form, federal income tax returns with W-2 forms, and the Noncustodial Parent’s Statement may be required for some students. In addition, we may require a sibling enrollment verification form from those students who report that a sibling attends another college. A college official at the sibling’s college would need to verify enrollment and return the form to the CC financial aid office. The financial aid office will distribute information about renewal application procedures for the 2014-15 academic year by mailing out a letter or sending out an email to student. Specific information will be available on the financial aid office web site.
Satisfactory academic progress as evidenced by the student’s ability to continue enrollment at Colorado College and comply with the Satisfactory Academic Progress policy as stated in the Financial Aid Policies Handbook and the Colorado College Catalog of Courses. The Dean’s Advisory Committee, in accordance with the academic standards defined in the Catalog of Courses, reviews students’ academic records each semester. The financial aid office determines continued eligibility for financial aid based on a review of the satisfactory academic progress policy.
Except in cases involving medical problems or other personal circumstances approved by the director of financial aid, a student withdrawing or taking a leave during a semester will lose a semester’s eligibility for financial aid unless he or she repays the amount of Colorado College funds used for that semester. Eligibility for Colorado College financial aid extends for a total of eight semesters or through a semester in which 32 units are completed, whichever comes first.
