Federal Financial Aid Refund Policy
Students who receive certain federal and state financial aid are subject to state repayment and federal Return to Title IV Funds regulations. These regulations state that aid eligibility for most students receiving state or federal aid must be recalculated if the student withdraws from all classes early or ceases to attend during the quarter. Some students may owe a repayment of funds received. These regulations and any resulting amounts owed are separate from and may be in addition to the college’s own tuition refund policy.
