Withdrawal Policy

Change of Enrollment:  Colleges must review payments of funds to students each enrollment period to determine if students have received an overpayment.  If you are paid at one level of enrollment and then drop units, you may be subject to repayment of some of the funds you received.

 It is your responsibility to drop your classes through the Admissions Office if you do not attend.  Failure to drop classes may result in a financial aid overpayment, which may require repayment of the financial aid you received.

 Example:  You were enrolled in 12 units (full-time) at the beginning of the semester and received your first check for $1,000.  You then drop 3 classes (9 units) and remain in 3 units (less than half-time).  The full payment for less than half-time enrollment is $432.  You are overpaid $568 and you must repay this amount before receiving any further financial aid. 

 If it is determined that you owe a repayment, and you do NOT repay the funds, a hold will be placed on your academic record, your debt will be reported to the U. S. Department of Education for collection, and you will not be eligible for further financial aid at any postsecondary institution until the debt is paid in full.

Students who receive federal financial aid and then withdraw from ALL classes may have to repay some of the federal funds they received.

Return to Title IV :  All students receiving federal aid, who withdraw from the institution in the first 60% of the term, are subject to Return to Title IV Regulations.  The Financial Aid Office will calculate the amount of federal funds earned by the student up to the point of withdrawal and students will be billed and must repay any federal grant funds received but not earned.  Failure to repay these funds will result in the denial of future federal financial aid at all colleges.  Nonpayment of the unearned amount will be reported to the U.S. Department of Education for collection.  The college is also required to report grant overpayments to the National Student Loan Data System.

 It is advised that you contact the Financial Aid Office before withdrawing from all of your classes so you understand the results of your actions.  For the refund policy on enrollment fees and non-resident tuition, please see the College Schedule of Classes or the College Catalog.
