Keeping Your Aid

In order to keep receiving financial aid, you must maintain satisfactory academic progress. If you withdraw or reduce the number of classes you enroll in, it may affect your award.

UNC Charlotte requires that you maintain these standards:

  • For Undegraduate students, a minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA
  • For Graduate students, a minimum cumulative 3.0 GPA
  • Complete 66.6% of the classes you attempt, and
  • Complete your degree within a maximum time frame

Over Awards

  • If you receive more financial aid than your Cost of Attendance, this is called an “Over Award
  • This is most common when you receive outside (non-institutional) awards after you receive your award from UNC Charlotte

Withdrawal from Classes

  • You may be billed for a portion or all of your financial aid if you withdraw from the university
  • You may no longer be eligible for the full amount of Title IV aid that you were originally scheduled to receive
  • The Office of Financial Aid determines your amount of earned and unearned Title IV aid and if aid needs to be returned, the amount is added as a charge on your student account
