If you used Federal Financial Aid to pay for your class(es) and are not withdrawing from all hours, your enrollment adjustment will not be evaluated for Return of Title IV funding. You will be reviewed for Satisfactory Academic Progress at the end of the spring semester.

*If you used Federal Financial Aid and are withdrawing from all hours, a Return of Title IV Funds calculation must be done. The process is summarized below:

  • The net amount of aid disbursed or that could have been disbursed is reviewed
  • The dates of the enrollment period and the date of official withdrawal are used to determine the percentage of the enrollment period that has been completed, which determines the percentage of aid earned by the student
  • If the percentage of the enrollment period is greater than 60%, no return of Title IV funding would be required.
  • If the percentage of the enrollment period is less than 60%, the percentage is used to calculate the amount of aid earned by the student.
  • Un-earned aid is reviewed to determine the amounts and types of aid to be returned by the university to the Federal Government.
  • Un-earned aid is returned in the following order:
    • Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan
    • Federal Direct Subsidized Stafford Loan
    • Federal Pell Grant
    • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant
    • Other
  • If a balance is due, Student Financial services will contact you, the Accounting Office and your Campus Center regarding the outstanding balance.
  • You will be reviewed for Satisfactory Academic Progress at the end of the spring semester.

It may be possible to earn aid that has not yet been disbursed; a Post Withdrawal Disbursement calculation will be performed as needed. You will be notified from the Student Financial Services office regarding any Post Withdrawal Disbursements.
