Policy on Completing Review of Course Applicability for Financial Aid


Please complete the following form. Do not submit this form until you have registered for the class(es) that need to be reviewed. In order to process your request, ensure that all requested information is included in your submission. Any omitted information will delay your request until we receive the requested information from you.


  • If your courses are approved and you change your schedule, the approval may be deleted by the Financial Aid system. Our office does not receive notification of schedule changes, so it is your responsibility to resubmit this form for courses that need to be re-approved.
  • Curriculum changes (major/minor changes) after the census date (12th class day in fall/spring, 4th class day in summer sessions) may impact courses counting toward the degree. You are responsible for contacting the Financial Aid Office to determine how curriculum changes will affect your aid prior to requesting a major/minor change.
  • This form is ONLY needed for courses not already counting for financial aid. You should check your financial aid status in Catsweb prior to completing this form. Only courses falling under the "Hours Not Counting for Financial Aid" or "Courses Not Counting Due to Courses Counting Toward Degree Requirements" should be submitted through this form. You must take a screenshot of this page and attach it when prompted below.
