Cornell employers will not send electronic payroll checks by email and will not ask students to make gift card purchases on their behalf.

Course Repeats and Financial Aid Eligibility

According to federal legislation, repeat classes may only count towards financial aid eligibility if (a) the course was previously failed or (b) the course was previously passed only once. This means a student who fails a class may repeat a class and have it count as credit toward the determination of enrollment status for financial aid purposes but a student who has already passed a class may only repeat the class once more (i.e., to receive a better grade) and have these credits count toward financial aid eligibility. The Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment does not determine if you may repeat a class, only whether you may be eligible for financial aid for a repeat class. Beginning Summer 2019, impacted students will receive an email notification.
