2023 - 2024 Catalog
Financial aid eligible programs require enrollment and attendance in class in order for financial aid awards to be paid toward educational expenses. An eligible enrollment is determined by validating that the student is registered, has been attending the required number of credit hours; and is in a valid program of study on the certification date of the semester in which aid is to be paid. The official academic calendar will be used to determine the certification date of enrollment.
Flex Term describes classes that do not follow the regular semester schedule. Flex Terms are shorter, more concentrated classes with shorter duration times. Registration for Flex Classes can occur throughout the semester and be Title IV eligible. Flex terms may not have the start date of enrollment published in the academic calendar. Information on the official date for a flex term can be obtained from the instructional department.
At the earliest, financial aid can only disburse 10 days prior to the start of class; traditional, flex and nontraditional classes. Total enrollment will be determined collectively from traditional, nontraditional and Flex Classes. If a student withdraws from the class after aid has been paid, he or she may be required to return a portion of the financial aid received for the term. Please refer to Dallas College policy section, "Return of Federal Title IV Funds Policy."
