Federal Refund Policy for Title IV Financial Aid Recipients
When a title IV financial aid recipient withdraws from all classes, the percentage of the period completed, based on class days will be calculated.  The federal government mandates that students who withdraw may only keep the financial aid they have “earned” up until the time of withdrawal.  Title IV funds in excess of this amount must be returned by the University and/or Student to the Federal Government. If you withdraw from (or stopped attending) all classes before 60% of the semester has been completed, you must pay back some of the financial aid you received.

To determine how much Financial Aid a student has earned, we will calculate the percentage of the period completed, based on calendar days.  Scheduled breaks of 5 days or longer will be excluded.  This percentage is then multiplied by the total amount of Title IV aid disbursed and that could have been disbursed.  The Institution and/or Student must return the unearned amount of aid.

This policy applies to all Title IV Financial Aid recipients, including first time students.  You will be notified by mail if you have withdrawn from all classes and must repay a percentage of you financial aid.  If you have any further questions, please contact the Bursar Office.

** The regulations apply only to full withdrawals.  All partial withdrawals are refunded by the percentages designated above.
* Institutional refund will be used when greater than Federal refund.

State Refund Policy
All State Financial Aid is recalculated through the end of the 4th week of classes. Aid will be recalculated at the new number of credit hours if a student drops any classes during the first four weeks of the semester and drops below 15 credit hours but remains in 12 or more hours. If a student drops below 12 hours they may lose their entire award. The student will be billed for any lost aid amount.

Procedures to Follow to Obtain a Refund
Notifications of withdrawal or cancellation and requests for refund must be in writing and addressed to the Registrar.  Not attending a class does not constitute a formal withdrawal from a course.  You must complete a drop card in the Registrar’s Office (located in room 40 Schwarz Hall) to formally withdraw from a course.  Otherwise you may receive a failing grade in the course for non-attendance.
