Withdrawals and Tuition Assistance

Federal Tuition Assistance funds are paid on behalf of the student under the assumption that the student will attend school for the entire period for which the assistance is paid. When a student withdraws, the student may no longer be eligible for the full amount of tuition assistance funds originally scheduled.

Tuition Assistance eligibility must be recalculated if a student totally withdraws or is dismissed from the university before 60 percent of the semester has been completed. A student's tuition assistance will be adjusted to reflect the percentage of assistance earned based on the number of days in the semester that have elapsed before the student indicated an intent to withdraw to a university official. If the student receives more tuition assistance than the amount earned, the school must return the unearned funds. The amount of tuition assistance to be returned is determined by subtracting the amount of earned tuition assistance from the amount actually disbursed. The student will be responsible for any balance on his or her account which results from these adjustments.
