Students living in the US make up 100% of incoming freshmen.
A student may apply for, and if eligible, receive financial aid for attempted credit hours that do not exceed 150% of the minimum number of hours required to complete the student's declared program of study. All hours attempted toward the completion of a program of study will be counted in the maximum number of allowed hours regardless of whether financial aid was received. Credit hours transferred to the DCCCD are counted when calculating the 150% maximum. To receive aid for an educational program within the maximum hours allowed, transfer students must select an eligible program of study and must submit official transcripts of all previous college course work. When SAP is calculated, students who have attempted 150% of the allowed number of credit hours, or for whom it would be mathematically impossible to complete a program of study within the 150% maximum, will be placed on Financial Aid Suspension regardless of their CGPA, and regardless of whether or not financial aid was received during previous semesters. Previous hours attempted by a student whose DCCCD academic transcript has been cleared for a "Fresh Start" will continue to count toward the student's 150% maximum limit.
1) For a student completing an associate's degree program that requires 66 hours, the student must complete the degree within 99 attempted hours. The student will lose eligibility for additional financial aid to complete the program after 99 attempted hours.
2) For a student completing a certificate program that requires 30 hours, the student must complete the certificate within 45 attempted hours. The student will lose eligibility for additional financial aid to complete the program after 45 attempted hours.
