If a financial aid recipient begins attendance in class, but resigns (official withdrawal) or stops attending (unofficial withdrawal) ALL classes before completing more than 60% of the semester, he/she will owe money to the aid program and BPCC. If a student ATTENDS at least one class PAST the 60% date, he/she will not owe money.
Attendance requires the student to participate in academic related activities (exams, discussion boards, assignments, etc.) Logging into the class without participating in an assigned activity is not considered as an “academic related activity”. Attending a face-to-face class without participating in an assigned activity is not considered as an “academic related activity”.
Please NOTE: Your instructors will provide the financial aid office with your last date of attendance (where you participated in an academic related activity). We will adjust your financial aid awards according to the last date you attended class, not the day you withdraw. You must ATTEND past the 60% date.
