Students who wish to completely withdraw from their courses must officially withdraw
at the Registration Office by completing a withdrawal form and notify the financial
aid office. If the student is unable to do this in person or by mail the student can
contact the financial aid office by phone.
Students who completely withdraw at or before 60% of the term will be processed through
a federally mandated Return of Title IV Funds Calculation.
This calculation determines the percentage of financial aid the student has earned
based on the number of days the student attended divided by the number of days in
the enrollment period.
The student will be responsible to pay any unpaid institutional charges incurred by
the institution having to return Title IV funds.
The student will also be responsible for returning a percentage of unearned financial
aid. This amount will be the difference between the amount of Title IV aid due from
the school and the amount of Title IV aid to be returned.
The school must return funds to the following sources, in order, up to the total net
amount from each source: Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loan, Subsidized Federal Stafford
Loan, PLUS, Pell Grant, Federal ACG, Federal SEOG, and any other Title IV programs.
The student will return loan amounts in accordance with the terms of the promissory

required to return a portion of what was received. You will be notified by financial
aid if any amount of the state grant must be repaid.
Financial aid is available to eligible students who enroll at the institution for
a specific period and for a specific number of courses. Students who stop attending
classes as reported by the faculty will have financial aid adjusted to reflect the
student's unofficial withdrawal from classes.
Students who are reported by the faculty as stopped attending classes will have their
financial aid adjusted if the student has stopped attending classes during the institution's
refund period. The institution will retain the full tuition and fees of students who
stop attending classes and may report these students as enrolled for state appropriations.
This procedure parallels the manner in which the institution adjusts students who
officially withdraw from classes.
Students who are reported by the faculty as stopped attending classes after the institution's
refund period (unless the student has stopped attending all classes) will not have
financial aid adjusted, but will be expected to make satisfactory academic progress
according to the federal guidelines established for financial aid recipients. The
institution will retain the full tuition and fees of students who stop attending classes
and may report these students as enrolled for state appropriations. This procedure
parallels the manner in which the institution adjusts students who officially withdraw
