Return to Title IV Policy

Federal law requires that if you received a federal grant and then drop or withdraw from ALL of your classes prior to the 60% point of the semester or if you fail to begin a late start class you may have to repay funds.  Note: The earlier that you drop or withdraw, the more money you may have to pay back.

  •  If you receive Loan money and withdraw, you will pay back the money according to the Federal guidelines of the loan program.
  • If you receive Federal Work Study money and withdraw, you do not owe anything back.  You will get to keep any salary you have earned.

  • If you are enrolled in short term classes without being enrolled in full semester classes and/or you withdraw or fail to attend those classes, you may be subject to the Return of Title IV calculation.
