Graduation Plan (Previously called – Academic Plan)

There are limits on the number of credits you can earn or attempt and still receive financial aid. We are required to count all college level (100 or above) classes when determining this limit. Generally, you can earn/attempt 125% of the credits needed to complete your degree or certificate program. We closely monitor your enrollment and your progress towards completing your degree or certificate. You may be required to submit a Graduation Plan if:

  • You have or will earn during the upcoming school year 100% of the credits needed to complete your degree or certificate,
  • You are working on a certificate that is less than 45 credits,
  • Your transcript indicates you have taken classes outside your degree program,
  • You submitted a plan in a prior year to the Financial Aid Office, or
  • You are working on a second or subsequent degree or certificate program.

At the time your file is processed, we send you an email letting you know if you must submit a Graduation Plan. Your file is not awarded until a plan has been submitted and approved for funding.
