Refunds for Tuition and Other Institutional Charges

Refunds

Students who withdraw from classes or drop out of school after the term has begun may be eligible for a refund. There are two types of refunds: refunds of institutional charges (tuition, room, meal plan, etc.) and refunds of financial aid. A refund of institutional charges credits money to the student's account (decreasing what he or she owes). A refund of financial aid reduces the amount of financial aid available to pay the institutional charges (increasing what he or she owes).

Students planning to withdraw from all classes must notify the dean of students (Tower 2142). There they will complete a withdrawal form.

Tuition, course fees, housing and meal refunds

These refunds amounts are based on the date of official withdrawal with the dean of students.

Financial Aid refunds

Students who withdraw from all classes during the 100 percent tuition refund period will receive a full refund of all their financial aid unless they complete a Withdrawal Survey Form (Available in the dean of student's office, documenting their attendance at each class. Upon receipt of the Withdrawal Survey Form, the federal financial aid refund policy will be calculated. If students receive a full (100 percent) refund of tuition, they are ineligible for any state, institutional or private sources of financial aid.

Federal (Return of Title IV Funds) Refund Policy

Students with federal aid who withdraw (or are expelled) after a semester starts, but before completing 60 percent of the term, may need to return a portion of their federal (Title IV) aid. The percentage of Title IV aid to be returned is equal to the number of days remaining in the semester divided by the number of calendar days in the term. Scheduled breaks of more than four consecutive days are excluded.

Minnesota Office of Higher Education (OHE) Financial Aid Refund Policy

St. Scholastica is required to use the OHE financial aid refund policy when calculating refunds for Minnesota State Grants and Minnesota SELF loans. After applying St. Scholastica's "billing refunds" and the "Return of Title IV Funds" refund calculations to the student's account, a proportionate share of the state aid is refunded using the following formula: "remaining refund" x "MN financial aid funds"/"all non-Title IV financial aid." Students retain money earned through the Minnesota State Work Study Program before withdrawing from St. Scholastica.

Financial Aid refunds for institutional and private funds

After calculating the federal and Minnesota financial aid refund policies, institutional and private gift aid is reduced by the same percentage as the student's tuition was reduced.
