Return to Title IV

Policy on Return to Title IV (R2T4) - The U. S. Department of Education (USDOE) requires schools to calculate a R2T4 for students that stop attending class, or totally withdraw before the 60% point of the semester. This could result in the school having to refund federal funds to the USDOE. The funds will be returned in the following order: Unsubsized loan funds, Subsized loan funds, then the Pell Grant funds.  The student is then responsible for paying the school the amount that was refunded.
