Maintaining Eligibility

Please note, to receive federal, state, and/or institutional financial aid, a student must be pursuing an eligible degree or certificate program at Clark College. 

Satisfactory Academic Progress

Federal and State financial aid regulations require recipients of financial aid, including grants, loanswork study and scholarships, to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy (SAP) in their program of study.

Repayment Policies

Students who withdraw from classes after disbursement of aid may owe a repayment of funds received.

Clark College Repayment Policy
Financial Aid reviews and locks enrollment on the tenth day of the term for Pell Grant, Washington College Grant (WCG) and College Bound Scholarship (CBS) recipients. Enrollment changes completed through the tenth day of the term will result in an adjustment of eligibility for funds by increasing awards for eligible credits added or reducing awards to calculate a repayment of funds for credits dropped after disbursement.

Clark College Return of Title IV Policy
Students who officially or unofficially withdraw from all financial aid eligible classes, or complete zero financial aid eligible credits at the end of the term, may owe a repayment of financial aid funds received for the term. The Financial Aid Office is required to determine the percentage of funds earned by the student and is based on the withdrawal date.
