Understanding Return of Federal Aid due to Withdrawals (R2T4)

If you received federal financial aid and withdraw from all of your classes within the first 60% of the term we must recalculate your financial aid eligibility according to a Federally prescribed formula, referred to as R2T4. Because funds are awarded based on your attending the entire term, we must recalculate your award based on the actual number of days you attended. This will determine if you received funds for which you are not eligible.

We recommend that you check with the financial aid office to find out if you will owe a repayment before withdrawing from all of your classes. We can advise you while you are considering withdrawing as to what will happen in your specific situation.
