Definitions

  • Date of a Student’s Withdrawal — the earlier of 1) the date the student officially withdraws or 2) the date the student begins the withdrawal process. The beginning of the withdrawal process is the date the student contacts the Student Services Office with notification of intent to withdraw.  For a student who does not officially withdraw, the midpoint of the term will be used as the withdrawal date. If the Registrar’s Office receives confirmation from all of a student’s faculty that a student has ceased attending all courses without explanation, the Registrar will withdraw that student from all courses. The first day of missed class will be used as the last date of attendance for students who never attended (for federal reporting purposes; billing will use the drop date for student charges). 
  • Calendar Days in the Term — counted starting with the first day of the term and ending with the final day of the term (inclusive). Scheduled breaks of five days or more are not counted.
  • Calendar Days Completed — counted starting with the first day of the term, and ending with the date of withdrawal (inclusive). Scheduled breaks of five days or more are not counted.
  • Institutional Charges — tuition, fees, room and meals (if the student is on campus), music lessons, and course or program fees.
  • Non-Institutional Charges — any charges except those listed under institutional charges, including but not limited to: books and supplies, off-campus room and meals, parking fines, etc.
  • Post-Withdrawal Disbursement — may be indicated if the withdrawn student was otherwise eligible to receive the “earned aid” portion of federal funds, and any loan application was certified prior to the withdrawal date. The University shall notify a student (or the student’s parents in the case of a PLUS loan) of any post-withdrawal disbursements which could be made. The student (or parent) will have fourteen days in which to respond to the offer, either accepting or rejecting the late disbursement of a loan.
  • Federal Funds — include Federal Pell Grant, Federal SEOG Grant, Federal Teach Grant, Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans and Federal Parent PLUS Loans.
  • Order of Return of Federal Funds — as follows, Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan, Federal Direct Subsidized Loan, Federal Perkins Loan, Federal PLUS Loan, Federal Pell Grant, and Federal SEOG.
  • Disbursed Funds — those funds that were posted to your student account after eligibility for the funds has been established.
