Financial Aid and Attendance

Students at IRSC who receive any Federal Financial Aid, including Veterans Benefits, are expected to attend all classes. Unavoidable absences should be discussed with instructors. Financial Aid and Veteran students should refer to IRSC’s Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress, available at: http://www.irsc.edu/uploadedFiles/Admissions/Financial_Aid/Financial-Aid-Handbook.pdf.   

Financial Aid recipients who stop attending classes or receive a grade of I, F, U, or W, will be considered withdrawn as of their last date of attendance. Financial Aid may be adjusted accordingly (See Withdrawals - Return to Title IV Funds).

Students who do not attend the first week of their classes will be withdrawn, receive a grade of W, and their Financial Aid award will be adjusted as appropriate. Attendance in online classes is verified by completing online assignments during the first week. See class syllabus for specific attendance requirements.

Full-time for Financial Aid eligibility is defined as at least 12 credit hours during each semester, Fall, Spring, and Summer. If fewer credit hours are attempted, awards are adjusted proportionately.
