Maintaining Eligibility for Financial Aid

In order to keep your financial aid award and to continue to receive funds, you must maintain the following eligibility requirements. 

1. Satisfactory Academic Progress

Satisfactory Academic Progress is an eligibility requirement for both federal and state financial aid. It will apply even if you never received financial aid. To achieve satisfactory academic progress, you are expected to complete your academic objective (degree, certificate, or transfer) in a timely manner. Since academic progress rules can occur at any point during your education, failing to meet these requirements could lead to termination of your financial aid at NWACC.
