When a student never attends a course or stops attending a course, the professor will report an FN or FA grade. An FN grade is given when a student fails to ever attend a course they are registered for. An FA grade is given when a student stops attending a course without officially withdrawing from the course. These grades often result in a billing to the student. If you received an FN or FA grade and resumed attendance in the course, please ask your professor to contact the financial aid office. The Department of Education requires students to pass at least 67% of their attempted hours in order to remain eligible for Federal financial Aid. When a student receives an FN or FA grade, their overall completion rate is lowered.
