Financial Aid Dismissal, Loss of Eligibility
Students, who do not meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements, will be dismissed from eligibility for financial aid (except for the Board of Governors Fee Waiver).
Students who have been disqualified may appeal to the financial aid office. Appeals may be approved for documented medical problems, family emergencies and other circumstances outside the student’s control (Note: Change of Major or Dual Major is not considered extenuating circumstances).
To apply for an appeal, students must:
- Complete an IVC Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeal Form (available in the Financial Aid Office or on-line on our website www.ivc.edu/finaid/pages/forms.aspx )
- Submit an academic plan, completed by an IVC academic counselor.
- Submit all official academic transcripts from all previously attended colleges.
Students who complete the appeal process will be notified if their appeal has been approved by the IVC Financial Aid Appeals Committee. Students whose appeal was approved by the committee will be placed on financial aid probation for one semester.
Student’s academic progress will be reviewed at the end of the probationary semester. A student, who does not meet the minimum satisfactory academic standards during the probationary semester, will lose eligibility. The Financial Aid Office will accept one appeal per year and no more than two appeals total.
