Student Handbook 2021-2022


Attendance Policy for Financial Aid

Regular class attendance is required for students receiving financial aid. If a student fails to begin attendance or stops attending classes (unofficial withdrawal), financial aid may be reduced or cancelled.

At the end of each semester, students who fail to earn credit (F-grade) for coursework are reviewed. Students who receive an F-grade because they never attended class will have all financial aid cancelled. Students who receive an F-grade because they stopped attending class may have their financial aid reduced based on a Return to Title IV calculation. Students who earned an F-grade will not be affected by this policy. An F-grade may affect a student’s Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress.

This policy applies to consortium students attending Walsh and a community college. Attendance will be reviewed for courses at both schools to determine if the grades were caused by a failure to attend.
