Course Repeat Rule for New York State Financial Aid
As of May 1987, if a student repeats a course in which a passing grade acceptable to the institution has already been received, the course cannot be included as part of the student's minimum full-time or part-time course load for financial aid purposes. When such courses are included in meeting the minimum requirement, they render the student ineligible for a State award. In the following instances, repeated courses may count toward full-time or part-time study: (1) when a failed course is repeated; (2) when a course may be repeated and credit earned each time.
