Dropping Classes and Withdrawing
Financial aid eligibility will be based on the number of hours for which you are enrolled on the Official Day of Record listed in the Academic Calendar. If you register and then drop classes prior to that date (but remain enrolled in at least one class), your eligibility for aid will be recalculated based on your remaining hours as of the Official Day of Record. Since most financial aid is released prior to the Official Day of Record, students who receive a financial aid payment based on more hours than those remaining as of the Official Day of Record may be responsible for repaying a portion of any financial aid received. Dropping classes after the Day of Record may affect your eligibility for future aid.
Withdrawing (Return of Title IV Funds)
Financial aid is awarded and disbursed to the student each semester with the stipulation that the student complete the semester. If you register, then completely withdraw from all classes, your eligibility for aid will be recalculated based on the number of days you attended class. If you completely withdraw from all classes prior to the first class day, you must repay all financial aid received. If you withdraw on or after the first class day, you may have to repay a portion of financial aid received. For details about the Return of Title IV process, please read the complete policy.
