A+ How Do I Renew My Award?

How do I renew my award?

You may renew your award annually.  To renew you must complete the FAFSA, or FAFSA4casterif applicable, each year in order to make a good faith effort to secure a Pell grant or other federal aid. You must also maintain a 2.5 grade point average and otherwise maintain satisfactory academic progress as defined by your school.

If you are an initial student who has been denied A+ reimbursement for failure to maintain satisfactory academic progress as defined by the school, or a renewal student denied for failure to maintain a 2.5 cumulative grade point average or the school’s other satisfactory academic progress criteria, you may receive the award in the term following the school’s determination that the standard has been regained.  Schools have different policies for how frequently they monitor satisfactory academic progress.  You will need to check with your school to determine when your award might be reinstated.
