If a student completely withdraws from all credits for a term before the 60% point of that term, the financial aid disbursed is subject to the State and Federal Return of Title IV Funds. Students "earn" financial aid in proportion to the time they are enrolled up to the 60% point.
The unearned share of financial aid is returned in the following order: Federal Unsubsidized Direct Loan, Federal Subsidized Direct Loan, PLUS Loan, Federal Pell Grant, Federal SEOG. State financial aid programs are refunded to the Minnesota Office of Higher Education/State of Minnesota. The student may be required to repay a portion of financial aid he/she received.
If a student withdraws before his/her financial aid is disbursed, the student is responsible for the tuition due to the College.
Please contact the Financial Aid Office prior to withdrawing if you have any questions regarding your possible repayment obligation.
