“Dear Dawn”

Dear Dawn:

I will be registering soon for the May Semester.  How do I know if I should notify financial aid that I have increased my credits?      

Sincerely, Twelve Credits


Dear Twelve Credits: 

After your 2nd term of class’s if, you started with 12 credits a default budget of nine (9) credits will be used, unless you took 6 credits or 15 credits.


Check out the Video that is located on the Credit Hour Adjustment Form (CHAF), located on the financial aid page of the portal.


Regards, Dawn
