Is it OK to drop a class?
As mentioned above, in most cases it’s OK to drop a class, especially if you haven’t dropped a class before. Colleges understand that sometimes circumstances change, and having one dropped class on your transcript won’t hurt your college applications. However, there are still some considerations to keep in mind.
What happens to your fafsa if you withdraw?
Return of Federal Funds The Federal Return of Title IV Funds procedure mandates that students who officially withdraw (drop all classes) or unofficially withdraw (stop attending without dropping all classes) may only keep the financial aid they have “earned” up to the time of withdrawal.
What happens to my fafsa if I take a semester off?
If you take a semester off, it shouldn’t make much of a difference for your federal loans. Most federal loans have a six-month grace period. When you return to school at least half-time after taking a semester off, the grace period on your loans will reset, provided you didn’t exceed it.
What happens if I don’t use all my financial aid money?
Your school will still send you a refund check in this case, but keep in mind that the money you receive is still borrowed money. You will accrue interest on it, and you will have to repay that principal amount.
Can you go to another college if you are on financial aid suspension?

Each school will have a certain GPA minimum that students must maintain in order to continue receiving financial aid as well as scholarships, but it is usually at least a 2.0 on a 4.0 scale. If the student is unable to bring their grades up, the school will withdraw financial aid.
