previous year’s financial data. The completed FAFSA form
should be mailed to the federal processor, or completed
and sent via the website at www.fafsa.ed.gov
The Financial Aid Officer will request any
additional forms that need to be completed.
Students who desire to borrow money under the
Federal Direct Loan Program will need to complete

award letter, securing those funds still requires the
submission of a separate Master Promissory Note.
The recommended filing date is prior to May 1 of the

Return of Title IV Funds
If a student receiving financial aid from Federal Title IV funds
withdraws or is terminated from the program, any refund due must be made
to the programs providing the aid according to applicable governmental
regulations before any refund can be made to the student.
The refund policy is in accordance with the requirements of 34 CFR
668.22, code of Federal Regulations, which determine the amount of
federal aid that has been earned and how much aid must be returned to
any Title IV program by the student and the Program.
When you withdraw during your payment period, the amount of Title IV
program assistance that you have earned up to that point is determined
by a specific formula.
The order of repayment of Title IV funds is:
Unsubsidized FFEL/Direct Stafford Loan
Subsidized FFEL/Direct Stafford Loan
FFEL/Direct PLUS Loan
Other Title IV programs
If you have questions about Title IV program funds, you may contact the
Financial Aid Office, or the Federal Student Aid information center at
