It is the student’s responsibility to contact his/her campus’ financial aid officer to determine how dropping courses, resigning from college, or non-attendance may affect his/her financial aid eligibility. The Return of Title IV funds Policy applies to all federal financial aid recipients who resign before completing more than 60% of the semester for which they receive federal aid. Financial aid recipients who resign/withdraw, officially or unofficially, before completing more than 60% of the semester will be required to pay back all or part of the aid received. In most cases, students will owe money to the federal aid program(s) and to NLTCC. Students who stop attending all classes will be considered unofficial withdrawals. Students who resign after completing more than 60% d of the semester do not owe money to federal aid programs. (Not owing money does not mean that the student will meet eligibility requirements for future semesters.)
