Federal Return of Title IV Funds Policy

The Financial Aid Office is required by federal statute to recalculate federal financial aid eligibility for students who withdraw, drop out, are dismissed, or take a leave of absence prior to completing 60 percent of a payment period or term. Federal Title IV financial aid programs must be recalculated in these situations.

If a student leaves the institution prior to completing 60 percent of a payment period or term, the Financial Aid Office recalculates eligibility for Title IV funds. Recalculation is based on the percentage of earned aid using the following Federal Return of Title IV funds formula: percentage of payment period or term completed equals the number of days completed up to the withdrawal date, divided by the total days in the payment period or term. (Any break of five days or more is not counted as part of the days in the term.) This percentage is also the percentage of earned aid.

Funds are returned to the appropriate federal program based on the percentage of unearned aid using the following formula: aid to be returned equals 100 percent of the aid that could be disbursed, minus the percentage of earned aid, multiplied by the total amount of aid that could have been disbursed during the payment period or term.

If a student earned less aid than was disbursed, the institution would be required to return a portion of the funds, and the student would be required to return a portion of the funds. Keep in mind that when Title IV funds are returned, the student borrower may owe a debit balance to the institution.

If a student earned more aid than was disbursed, the institution would owe the student a post-withdrawal disbursement which must be paid within 180 days of the student's withdrawal. The institution must return the amount of Title IV funds for which it is responsible no later than 45 days after the date of the determination of the date of the student's withdrawal. Refunds are allocated in the following order:

  • Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loans;
  • Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loans;
  • Federal TEACH Grants for which a return of funds is required;
  • other assistance under this Title for which a return of funds is required.

Payment Options

Payment in full for tuition and all fees is required at the time of web, in-person, or mail-in registration. Payment may be made by cash, personal check, money order, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express. Third party billing, employee tuition remission benefits, graduate assistantships, scholarships, and approved financial aid are also acceptable payment methods. All registrations requiring third party billing, including tuition remission, must be accompanied by an immediately executable authorization (on official organization letterhead) or purchase order.

When registering via WebAdvisor, all payments or required payment authorization documents must be received by the University no later than 10 days after the registration request information is submitted. Failure to meet payment requirements will result in an immediate hold being placed on the student's account and may result in cancellation of the requested registration information. There will be no exceptions to this policy.

All application materials for a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan must be completed and received by the Office of Financial Aid at least four weeks prior to registration to ensure that loan proceeds are available for payment of University charges. Late applicants must pay all University charges when registering for classes.
