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 fsapartners.ed.gov, click here to view document
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.
