I am currently ineligible for financial aid after withdrawing from and failing two courses last semester. According to a financial aid office email my completion rate is shown as 88.79 and my GPA is 2.68. Last year I was speaking with a financial aid office admin about being very close to exceeding…something. She said it was'nt the 150% maximum allowed credit hours, nor the lifetime Pell limit of 6 years. Perhaps it was the completion rate of 88.79? But she said that if I earn a degree it will reset something. They checked with the registrar over the phone and it became known that I do in fact have enough credits to be eligible for a very over broad degree they offer at my college; it includes both conventional/gen. ed. courses plus college level vocational technical classes – I am two classes away from a vo./tech. degree plus I am 7 classes from getting an Associate of Science/University Ticket.
Please let me know if you think that changing my program to a degree I qualify for will reset my completion rate of 88.79…what about the 150% cap on credits?
