Financial Aid and the Refund Policy
event a student receives financial aid, completes registration,
and subsequently reduces his/her enrollment status or withdraws,
the amount of funds to be returned to federal, state, private
or University programs will be in accordance with regulations
concerning refunds and repayments to those appropriate programs.
A calculation will be made on all financial aid recipients
to determine whether a student who completely withdraws during
a term has earned the monies disbursed. A student earns his/her
aid based on the period of time they remain enrolled. During
the first 60% of the term, a student earns financial aid funds
in direct proportion to the length of time the student remains
enrolled. Beyond the 60% point all aid is considered earned.
The responsibility to repay unearned aid is shared by the
university and the student in proportion to the aid each is
assumed to possess. For more details concerning refunds for
students with financial aid, please contact the Student Accounts
department in 110 Business Services for further information.
All refunds, up to the amount of the aid received for the
term, will be returned to financial aid sources, according
to the following priority:
Family Educational Loans
Direct Student Loans
Direct Plus Loan
Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant
federal sources of aid
Other state, private, or institutional aid
