Maximum Time Frame

Maximum time frame is defined as 150 percent of the length of an academic program, measured in semester hours attempted, as published in the Goodwin College catalog. For example, using the 150% maximum, students enrolled in a program that is 60 semester hours in length must complete the program with a CGPA of 2.0 by the time they have attempted 90 semester hours. Successful course completion standards at each evaluation point ensure that the student can successfully complete the program of study within the maximum time frame with a minimum of a 2.0 CGPA.

If at any point it becomes mathematically impossible for the student to complete his/her program within the 150% maximum timeframe, the student will become ineligible for federal financial aid. The student will be notified via Goodwin College email when reaching maximum timeframe and his/her ineligibility for additional federal financial aid.
