Return of Financial Aid
Students should be aware that if they completely withdraw (officially or unofficially) from the university after having received financial assistance, they may be required to repay all or a portion of that assistance. In addition, some administrative record changes, once approved and processed, will also require a repayment of financial assistance. This may result in tuition, housing, meals, or other charges that were previously paid on the student account being owed. Refunds processed to the student prior to the return of financial aid may also be due back to the university.
