Maximum Time Frame Limitation (Excessive Credits)
The time frame of a student’s eligibility for financial aid is limited to 150% of the number of credits required to complete a degree as defined in the MCNY catalog. Credits counted toward time frame include all attempted credits, inclusive of all transfer credits applied by MCNY. Noncredit and/or remedial courses are not included in the quantitative measurements. Time Frame is reviewed at the end of each semester.
Time Frame cannot be appealed.
Withdrawals, Repeats and Incomplete Grades
Courses from which a student withdraws after the drop/add period will count towards attempted hours.
Repeat courses for which the student has previously earned credit will not count towards hours completed. However, they will count towards hours attempted even if credit was not previously earned. The highest grade will be the grade that counts towards the GPA calculation.
Credit hours for courses for which an incomplete or deferred grade is granted will not count as hours completed but will count towards hours attempted. Grade changes will be reviewed at the next scheduled review of a student’s academic progress.
