Reinstatement of Financial Aid Eligibility
A student in suspension status may re-establish eligibility for federal financial aid if:
The student continues to attend classes and improves his/her CGPA and/or completion rate to minimum standards without federal financial aid, or
The student appeals the suspension and demonstrates that extenuating circumstances caused the student to be unable to make satisfactory academic progress, such as the death of a relative, serious injury or illness of the student, or other special circumstances. The student must also explain what has changed in the student's situation that will allow the student to demonstrate satisfactory academic progress at the next evaluation.
The student must submit an Appeal of Academic Suspension Form no later than the last day of add/drop week of the quarter for which the student wishes to enroll.
The appeal form must be submitted to the academic dean of the campus at which the student intends to enroll, regardless of whether the student has previously attended another NAU campus.
A student may appeal no more than 3 times.
A student who has exceeded maximum timeframe cannot re-establish eligibility for federal financial aid.
