How will withdrawing from a class impact my financial aid?

When a student receiving federal financial aid fails to complete a term or trimester for any reason they may be subject to a Return of Title IV Funds (R2T4) calculation. Student’s “earn” their financial aid by participating in classes. If a student stops attending their classes (withdraw) and their last date of attendance is less than 60% of the way into the trimester or term, the school is required to return the “unearned” portion of financial aid to the Department of Education.  This often results in a student owing a balance to the University.

A withdrawal can also affect a student’s Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) by lowering the completion rate
