New Tennessee Law requires UTC to verify citizenship status of newly admitted & re-admitted students
The Tennessee Eligibility Verification for Entitlements Act requires Tennessee higher education institutions to verify that students seeking a state public benefit are a United States citizen or otherwise lawfully present in the United States. This law will affect students applying for admission or re-admission starting with the Spring 2013 semester. Students who choose not to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov will be required to submit documents to UTC to confirm that they are a US citizen or are in the United States legally.
Repeating Courses Can Affect Enrollment Status for Students Receiving Financial Aid
Recent federal regulations changed the way enrollment status is calculated for undergraduate students receiving federal financial aid, effective for the Fall 2012 Semester. Federal financial aid will not pay for a class that has already been attempted twice. Exceptions are made for select classes that are designed by the University to be taken multiple times, such as music performance classes. This differs from University policy. Students whose aid is affected by this regulation will receive an email from the UTC Financial Aid Office. There is no appeal; however, if you feel that your enrollment status for financial aid is not being calculated correctly, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
Example: During Fall 2011, student enrolled in 3-hour Math 1130 and
received a D. He took the same course again during Summer 2012 and
receives a C. He decides to take this class again to increase his GPA,
and registers for Math 1130 again during the Fall 2012 semester. Total
enrollment hours are 12 hours for fall 2012, but the 3 hours from Math
1130 are not included in determining his enrollment status for federal
financial aid. Federal financial aid will disburse for 9 credit hours. The same
would happen if the student received a passing grade and then a failing grade.
