Return of Financial Aid Funds Process

The return of financial aid funds policy follows these steps:

1. Financial Aid Office is notified by the Registrar’s Office of a withdrawal or of a student who is not verified by Class Attendance.
2. The Financial Aid Office begins the calculation process online using the worksheet provided by IFAP.ED.GOV (https://faaaccess.ed.gov/FOTWWebApp/faa/faa.jsp)
3. Determine the percentage of the enrollment period completed by the student. If the calculated percentage is equal to or greater than 60%, the student has “earned” all aid for the enrollment period and no adjustment in financial aid occurs.

Days Attended ÷ Days in Enrollment Period = Percentage Completed

4. Apply the percentage completed to the Title IV aid awarded to determine the student’s eligibility for financial aid prior to the withdrawal.

Total Aid Disbursed x Percentage Completed = Earned Aid

5. Determine the amount of unearned financial aid to be returned to the appropriate Title IV financial aid program.

Total Disbursed Aid – Earned Aid = Unearned Aid to be Returned

  • If the aid already disbursed equals the earned aid, no further action is required.
  • If the aid already disbursed is less than the earned aid, a late disbursement will be made to the student.
