What is the 150% Rule?
When you receive financial aid you are subject to the 150% Rule. This rule means that if you attempt more than 150% of the credit hours needed to gradute from your program of study, you will not continue to receive financial aid. All of the credits that you have ever taken at MATC whether financial aid was used or not are counted in this 150% Rule calculation. If you have changed your programs of study, all credits that you have taken at MATC or transferred to MATC are counted, whether they can be counted towards the credits you need to complete your program of study or not.
