Consequences Of Withdrawing/Dropping
It is important that you consider very carefully the consequences of withdrawing/dropping all of your classes at Del Mar College; this can adversely impact your financial aid.
Return of Title IV Funds Return of Title IV Funds applies to you if you have been awarded assistance from a federally funded loan or grant and have completely withdrawn (officially or unofficially) from Del Mar College. Your instructor reports your last day of attendance. The Department of Education considers you to have officially withdrawn if you earn all non-passing grades.
Calculation of Return Federal aid is earned on a daily prorated basis up to and including the 60% point in the semester. After the 60% point, all aid is considered earned and no refunds/ repayments are required. Your Return of Title IV Funds will be calculated accordingly: • The percent earned is calculated by dividing the number of calendar days completed by the number of calendar days in the semester. • The earned percentage received in federal assistance is the amount you are permitted to keep. The unearned percentage (remaining amount) must be returned to the federal government by both the College and you. This may cause you to owe both the College and the federal government. • The percent Del Mar College must return, on your behalf, will be returned to the appropriate federal fund program. The Del Mar College Business Office will bill you for the amount owed to the College. Outstanding balances at the end of the term will be referred to a collection agency by the Del Mar College Business Office. • The funds will be refunded to the Federal Funds Program in the following order, if applicable: 1. Unsubsidized Federal Direct Student Loan 2. Subsidized Federal Direct Student Loan 3. Plus Loan Program 4. Pell Grant Program 5. Federal SEOG • You must repay the amount owed to the appropriate federal program within 45 days. After the 45th day, if payment is not received, your overpayment will be referred to the Department of Education for collections and to the National Student Loan Database. • You must then make repayment arrangements with the Department of Education in order to maintain future eligibility for federal funds.
