Qualitative Standard: EGCC requires students to have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or better at the end of each payment period, which is determined by the number of credit hours completed through EGCC in that same payment period. The GPA is calculated based on all grades received while attending EGCC, even those that may not be eligible for financial aid consideration such as audit classes, transfer credits, etc. Students must also complete their program within an established maximum timeframe limit which is generally 150% of the published length of the program or degree they are enrolled in at EGCC; otherwise known as the Maximum Time Frame Rule (MTF). Any student who has attempted more than 150% of their program’s total clock hours will no longer be eligible for federal student aid funds unless there are mitigating circumstances approved by the Financial Aid Director in accordance with regulations set forth by the U.S Department Education.
In conclusion, it’s important for all students receiving Federal Title IV funding attend classes regularly and maintain successful passing grades in order remain compliant with Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards established by Eastern Gateway Community College so they may continue receiving assistance toward their education goals here at this institution until completion occurs within our predetermined time frame limits..
