Learning Support and English as a Second Language
Learning Support (LS) and English as a Second Language (ESL) courses are considered remedial courses. Federal regulations limit the maximum hours a student may receive financial aid for remedial courses. Financial aid may be used for a maximum of 30 hours of LS courses. However, ESL courses are not included in the 30 semester hour limit. Once the maximum is reached, students will not be eligible for financial aid until they have exited Learning Support. Up to 30 semester hours of LS and all ESL courses will not count toward the maximum hours allowed for a degree.
