Make Your Courses Count!

What is Course Applicability?

"Course Applicability" is a term that refers to the fact that students receiving Federal Financial Aid are only eligible to receive Federal Financial Aid for courses that are part of their degree or certificate program.  

 

Have you been told a course is ineligible for financial aid?

Financial Aid can only be used to cover the cost of courses that are eligible for your current program of study (major) at Folsom Lake College. Enrolling in courses for your program of study will also help you meet your educational goal faster.   If you are enrolled in courses that are not required, you will receive a notification indicating that these courses are not eligible to receive financial aid. If you have been awarded a BOG fee waiver, your fees will remain waived. (The BOG fee waiver is good for all courses, even those not required for your major.) If you think that you have received this notification in error, follow these steps for each course on your schedule which has been identified as ineligible for financial aid:
