Financial Aid at Compton College

Why did my financial aid change?

 Some of the reasons your financial aid may have changed include:
  • You did not enroll for the required number of hours to receive financial aid through the program awarded to you
  • You provided incorrect data on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
  • You received additional outside resources
  • You did not maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)
  • Your family’s financial circumstances changed
One of the most common reasons is a change in the number of hours a student is enrolled. Some financial awards such as the Pell Grant are based on your actual enrollment status. The amount on your award letter is made assuming that you will enroll full-time. In general, if you enroll half-time, you receive half of the award; if you enroll three-quarter-time, you receive three quarters of the award; if you enroll full-time, you receive the full award.
