Withdrawals & Return of Funds

Title IV financial aid funds are awarded with the assumption that the student will attend school for the entire term for which the aid was awarded. Therefore, if a student withdraws or ceases attendance, they may no longer be eligible for the full amount of Title IV funds originally scheduled to receive or may be eligible for a post withdrawal disbursement. For example, a student who withdraws in the second week of the semester has earned less of their financial aid than a student who withdraws in the fifth week.

It is important that all aid recipients understand the potential financial impact of withdrawing from classes.
