Return of Title IV Policy
Federal aid recipients who withdraw or are dropped from all classes by the instructor are subject to new regulations regarding the Return of Title IV funds. Students who withdraw or are dropped from all classes prior to completing more than 60% of the enrollment period are subject to these rules. Based on the date of the complete withdrawal or drop, the Financial Aid Office will determine the amount, if any, of "unearned" federal financial aid received by the student.

The Board of Governors (BOG) Fee Waiver waives your enrollment fees. It will not pay for the following things such as:
- Health fee
