Withdrawals and the Return of Federal Financial Aid

Federal student aid is awarded with the expectation that you will attend school for the entire period for which your financial aid was awarded. To establish eligibility for any federal financial aid payments, you must complete the college's registration and bill payment process and begin attending your classes. It is strongly advised that you consult with the Financial Aid Office if you drop or withdraw from a class(es). [Note: if you receive a financial aid payment for a class or classes you have never attended, you must return that payment immediately to the college.]

Once you start attending classes, the federal government requires that you "earn" your financial aid awards in direct proportion to the number of days in the semester that you do attend. If you completely withdraw from school before completing the term, the school must calculate according to a federally approved formula the portion of financial aid you have earned and are therefore entitled to receive up to the time you withdrew.

Withdrawal (Fall/Spring)
