The federal government is changing its rules for students getting financial aid. Colleges will be setting their own policy, and Central Oregon Community College is already discussing changes that will start next fall. COCC’s Director of Financial Aid, Kevin Multop says the government is trying to make sure their aid dollars are well spent. “We hope to make that decision over the next couple months, so we can share with students the policy during the spring term. It will go into effect the end of summer term.” One of the things COCC is looking at is monitoring student's grades every semester instead of yearly. Currently students must maintain a “C” average and complete two thirds of the classes they signed up for.
