An essay by Dr. Jennifer Sasser, gerontology program director, was published in the International Journal of Reminiscence and Lifelong Learning in January 2015.
Students placed on financial aid warning status who do not successfully resolve their warning status by the end of the warning term will be placed on financial aid suspension. Financial aid suspension halts all federal, state and institutional aid, as well as most outside scholarships and alternative loans. We place students on financial aid suspension status when one of the following situations occurs:
Undergraduate or graduate students:
- Being placed on warning and not resolving the warning status during the next term or not completing the next term successfully
- Reaching the maximum time frame for completing a degree program
Students who have reached junior status (90 or more credits) with a cumulative GPA below 2.0 in courses taken at Marylhurst University*
An undergraduate student who has transferred in 95 credits and completed his/her first term at Marylhurst earns 6 credits with only a 1.75 cumulative Marylhurst GPA
An undergraduate student who has more than 270 completed credits (including those credits transferred in and completed at Marylhurst) for a degree that only requires 180 credits for completion
A graduate student who has received unresolved "Incomplete" or "In Progress" grades two terms in a row, resulting in unresolved warning status and an inability to successfully complete the next term satisfactorily while on warning
* Undergraduate students who have reached junior status (90 credits) with a cumulative GPA below 2.0 cannot appeal suspended status. Students only may regain financial aid eligibility after earning a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0. This is a federal financial aid regulation and can't be appealed.
