Eligibility of Title IV (Financial Aid) Funds
Title IV funds are awarded to a student with the assumption that the student will attend a school for the entire period for which the funds are awarded. When a student ceases attendance prior to the planned ending date, the student may not be eligible for the full amount of Title IV funds the student was scheduled to receive.
If a student never begins attendance in a Payment Period, the student is not eligible to receive Title IV funds for that period.
If a student begins attendance in at least one course, but does not begin attendance in all the courses he or she was enrolled in, regardless of whether the student is a withdrawal, the school must check to see if it is necessary to recalculate the student’s eligibility for Title IV funds based on a revised enrollment status and cost of attendance.
The following policies are mandated by the US Department of Education.
