Withdrawal and Return of Funds

  • The Return of Title IV Funds policy applies only if the student completely terminates enrollment (i.e. cancels his/her registration, withdraws or is dismissed) or stops attending classes before completing more than 60 percent of the enrollment period. The Return of Title IV Funds policy applies to federal student financial aid programs. Financial Aid and Scholarships will calculate the amount of federal funds to be returned for students who withdraw.
  • Repayment Policy: The amount of Title IV aid that a student must repay is determined by the Federal Formula for Return of Title IV Funds as specified in Section 484B of the Higher Education Act.This law also specifies the order of return of the Title IV Funds to the program from which they were awarded.
  • A repayment may be required when aid has been credited to a student's account from financial aid funds in excess of the amount of aid the student earned during the term. The responsibility for returning unearned aid is allocated between Coastal Carolina University and the student according to the portion of disbursed aid that could have been used to cover university charges and the portion that could have been disbursed directly to the student once school charges were covered. Coastal Carolina University will distribute the unearned aid back to the Title IV programs as specified by law. The student will be billed for the amount the student owes to the Title IV programs and any amount due to Coastal Carolina University resulting from the return of Title IV funds used to cover charges.
