Failure to read these policies, terms, and conditions does not exclude students from the requirements and regulations stated herein.

Return of Title IV Funds

These policies are implemented in accordance with the United States Department of Education's federal guidelines governing Title IV aid, 34 CFR 668.21 and 668.22, as well as state and institutional policies.

All Title IV aid recipients are subject to these refund/repayment policies. All other aid recipients are subject to the policies of the appropriate governing agency. Financial aid recipients are required to notify the Financial Aid Office (FAO) of changes in enrollment due to canceled classes, official withdrawals, and/or ceased attendance.

Students are awarded Title IV assistance under the assumption that the student will attend the entire period for which assistance is awarded. If a student withdraws officially, unofficially (ceases attendance in all registered courses for a period of enrollment without completing the official withdrawal process), or never attends, they may no longer be eligible for the amount of aid originally awarded or disbursed.

Unofficial Withdrawals

Unofficial withdrawal occurs when a student ceases attendance in all registered classes for a specified term and who does not complete the official withdrawal procedures as defined in the Walters State Community College Catalog/Student Handbook under "Admissions and Records", subtitle "Withdrawals and Honorable Dismissals". The withdrawal date determined for unofficial withdrawals is the last date of attendance as reported by instructors electronically.

Withdrawals and Honorable Dismissals
