Return to Title IV Funds (R2T4)
- Withdrawal Procedure

Title IV (TIV) federal aid recipients are awarded financial aid during the enrolled semester on the assumption they will remain in the course(s) for the entire semester for which the funds were awarded. In the event that a student withdrawals from ALL courses during the semester, the college will process a Return to Title IV (R2T4) calculation.

The Financial Aid Office (FAO) is required:

to determine the earned and unearned portions of Title IV aid as of the date the student ceased attendance based on the amount of time the student spent in attendance or, in the case of a clock-hour program, was scheduled to be in attendance. Up through the 60% point in each semester, a pro rata schedule is used to determine the amount of Title IV funds the student has earned at the time of withdrawal. After the 60% point in the semester, a student has earned 100% of the Title IV funds the student was scheduled to receive during the period.

For a student who withdraws after the 60% point-in- time, there are no unearned funds. However, a school must still determine whether the student is eligible for a post-withdrawal disbursement (PWD).

Students who do not begin attendance in the schedule courses are not eligible for Title IV funding, therefore will not be considered to have earn Title IV aid.

Students that are enrolled in mini-sessions are considered withdrawn for Title IV purposes if the student ceases attendance at any point prior to completing the semester, unless the student has provided written confirmation at the time of the withdrawal that he/she would be attending another session that begins later in the same semester.

Refer to the Financial Aid Office Satisfactory Academic Progress to determine with a withdrawal could impart future financial aid eligibility.
