    In accordance with Federal regulations, financial aid eligibility will be recalculated for all Title IV* recipients who completely withdraw, drop out, are dismissed, or take a leave of absence prior to completing 61% of the semester.

    Percent earned = Number of days completed up to the withdrawal date** divided by total days in the semester.

    Aid to be returned = (100% minus the percent earned) multiplied by the amount of aid disbursed toward institutional charges.
