Is my financial aid limited? How long can I receive financial aid at GCC?

All students are limited in the amount of time during which they can receive financial aid, even those students who are progressing well academically. In order to receive continued financial aid you must be actively completing your degree option. This is called Maximum Time Frame. Maximum Time Frame allows a student to complete his degree within 150% of the degree’s total credit requirements. Most degree options at GCC require a total of 60 credit hours. So, this means that a student can attempt no more than 90 credit hours toward his degree. Students are no longer eligible to receive financial aid at GCC after 90 attempted credit hours. Attempted credit hours include all withdrawal credits, including medical withdrawals, all failed or incomplete credits, all transferred credits, and all developmental course work.
