Financial Aid Term & Dismissal


Standards required by the U.S. Department of Education:  Students must complete their program within 150% of the units required for that program.  The number of units required for degrees, certificates, and transfer is listed in the college catalog.  All attempted units, including units transferred in from other colleges, must be included, with the exception of ESL units and up to 30 units of remedial courses.  Attempted units are any units for which a student received a grade or a W (Withdrawal).

Long Beach City College policy states that students enrolled in a degree or transfer program who exceed 72 attempted units and students enrolled in certificate programs who exceed 30 attempted units have exceeded the maximum time frame requirement and will be placed on Term Dismissal status.

You can submit the Enrollment Priority & CA College Promise Grant if you wish to appeal a Term Dismissal.
