All students receiving Title IV funds are subject to the Return of Title IV Funds federal regulation. If a student withdraws through 60 percent of the payment period, the amount of Title IV aid will be pro-rated and returned to the Department of Education.

All institutional grants and scholarships will also be calculated and assessed in equal percentages to the refund policy associated with institutional charges. Alternative and institutional loans will be adjusted to need.

Students receiving New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) grants are subject to refund guidelines as established by New York State Higher Education Services Corporation.
