Requirements for return of Title IV, HEA grant or loan aid are available in the EWC catalog Financial Aid Section.
According to federal regulations, colleges must determine the amount of federal student financial assistance a students earns if he or she completely withdraws, either officially or unofficially, from all classes. The date of a student’s withdrawal from EWC will generally be the date of the student’s notification to the Office of the Vice President for Student Services of his/her intent to withdraw. However, the College may use an earlier last documented date of attendance at an academically related activity if this date more accurately reflects the student’s withdrawal date than the date the student begins the schools withdrawal process or notified the school of hos her intent to withdraw. When a student fails to withdraw from EWC, the midpoint of the semester or the last date of documented activity will be assumed as the withdrawal date.
The amount of assistance that the student earned is determined on a prorated basis. That is, if the student completed 30 percent of the payment period, the student earned 30 percent f the assistance he/she was originally scheduled to receive. Once a student has completed more than 61 percent of the payment period, he/she is considered to have earned 100% of his/her federal assistance.
If EWC is required to repay any portion of a federal education loan, the student or parent borrower is responsible for repaying the funds to EWC. The student or parent borrower is responsible for the remainder of the balance of the loan in accordance with the terms of the Master Promissory Note. If the student is responsible for returning grant funds, the student must make arrangements with EWC or the Department of Education to return the funds. Any amount that the student has to return is considered grant over-payment.
If the student withdraws, receives all “f’s” or a combination of both in any semester, the Financial Aid Office is required to determine a last date of attendance and a refund calculation may apply.
