  • Academic Standards

    Federal regulations require students receiving federal financial aid to maintain satisfactory progress according to standards set by Central Piedmont and the federal government. This policy applies to students applying for or receiving federal and state funds. Failure to fulfill any part of the agreement may result in the cancellation of financial aid awards and students may be responsible for repaying any funds received.
