Financial Aid Adjustments (Title IV aid)

If a student withdraws, fails or does not attend all scheduled courses, the college is obligated under federal regulations to recalculate the amount of financial aid the student has earned, based on the percentage of time completed in the term. The college tuition refund policy does not mirror the federal guidelines. As a result, the student may owe a balance due to the College.
