When a student fails courses, this is an out of pocket cost that the school and financial aid does NOT cover. Any F’s that a student receives at most institutions, including CCSD, results in an in-school balance that is required to be paid by monthly installments by the student.
When federal aid is sent to the school, whether it be grants or loans, the money will always go towards tuition first. If there is any credit after the funds go towards tuition, there will be a stipend out to the student.
When students do not pass a course, it adds to their total tuition. As a result, students may not have a have a stipend sent to them.
