Financial Aid Recipients should consider how withdrawal from any course may result in the possible return of Title IV (Pell Grant, SEOG, Direct Loans, Parent PLUS Loans and Perkins Loans) funds awarded. Students are entitled to financial aid only for the period they have attended. The amount of the semester’s Federal Title IV aid already disbursed that exceeds the student’s eligibility must be returned to its source. The amounts to be returned to the Federal Programs will vary based upon type of program, the total amount to be returned, and the government’s determination of the order in which aid is returned to the various programs. If there is a student account balance resulting from these adjustments, the student will be responsible for payment.* Please contact Student Financial Affairs for assistance in understanding the impact that withdrawing will have on your financial aid: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 572-7326.
