Policy for Withdrawals and for the Return of Title IV Funds (Pell Grant, FSEOG, Direct Loans):


A Title IV federal aid recipient who withdraws, officially or unofficially, from all classes on or before the 60% point of the academic term (10th week of school) will be subject to repayment based upon the federal "Return of Title IV Funds" calculation.  Federal regulations require that a percentage of the funds disbursed be returned.  Students "earn" federal aid funds in direct proportion to the length of time they remain enrolled.  A student who remains enrolled past the 60% point of the academic term has earned 100% of the Title IV federal aid for the enrollment period.  Pell grant awards are processed based on the student's enrollment status after the add/drop date is past for the semester.
