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 & 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.
