Academic history includes transfer hours, scholastic forgiveness hours, withdrawal hours, incomplete hours, repeated hours and developmental hours. Attempted Hours include all MGCCC and transfer hours in which the student has enrolled. Earned Hours include all MGCCC and transfer hours completed a grade of A, B, C, D, P, S. The formula for calculating the completion rate is: Earned Hours/Attempted Hours. Maximum Time Frame: All recipients of federal financial aid have a maximum of 90 attempted hours (1.5 x 60 minimum hours required for most MGCCC programs) to complete a diploma or degree program. Transfer hours are included in the 90 attempted hours. The maximum time frame is adjusted on an individual basis for programs which require more than 60 hours. Developmental Courses: Developmental Classes will be treated in the same manner as other college courses attempted.At the student's request, a maximum of 15 hours of developmental courses can be removed from the completion rate and maximum time frame determination. Repeated Courses: Repeated courses are counted as attempted hours in the completion rate and maximum time frame determination. Students cannot receive financial aid for more than one repetition of a previously passed course. In addition, students cannot receive financial aid for any repetition of a previously passed course due to the student failing other coursework (Example:Student fails Nursing I and has to repeat the entire semester.Financial Aid will cover the failed class but not the other classes.) NOTE: STUDENTS HAVE A LIFETIME PELL GRANT LIMIT OF 12 FULL-TIME SEMESTERS OR THE EQUIVALENT. THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WILL TRACK THIS VIA THE NATIONAL STUDENT LOAN DATABASE SYSTEM (NSLDS). THIS IS A FINAL DECISION FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND CANNOT BE APPEALED TO THE SCHOOL. Transfer Students: Official transcripts from all previous colleges attended (regardless of whether or not financial aid was received) must be forwarded to the MGCCC Admissions Office and be evaluated for transfer credit and SAP compliance before eligibility for Federal Financial Aid can be determined. All credit hours attempted (including those for which grades of W, WF, I, and WP) that are received will be included as hours attempted. 47"
