Vocational Programs and Aid
Career and Technical Certificate vocational programs will be funded for only their designated program intent. For example, if the program intent is welding, a mixture of welding, auto mechanics, and air conditioning and maintenance will not be permitted. Eligibility resides within a designated program.
Students must refer to the current Eastern Florida State College list of Programs and Admissions Requirements to check which programs are eligible for federal financial aid.
The initial evaluation for Standards of Progress will be made under general Standards of Progress guidelines. However, once an award has been made for a payment period, Standards of Progress will be revisited at the end of each payment period based upon CTC guidelines.
CTC students must successfully complete all coursework attempted. “Successfully completed” means the student has attended and passed the coursework associated with the clock hours/weeks in the payment period. Repeat attempts for failed classes will not be funded or included in subsequent enrollment.
Eastern Florida State College has adopted an excused absence policy for CTC programs. Excused absences cannot exceed the lesser of the State licensing/accrediting agency policy on excused absences for the program or 10% of the clock hours in a payment period.
Clock hour programs will be funded based upon completion of the payment period and progression of the coursework completed. Online coursework and the online portion of hybrid classes will not be counted toward progression.
Contact your local campus Financial Aid office for more information on eligible clock-hour programs. Please be aware that students will not be granted a deferment if the clock hours/weeks are not successfully completed within the payment period and the student may be required to pay for future enrollment until such time as they become eligible for additional funding.
