Return of Title IV Funds

Providence College is required by federal regulations to make known the following information to financial aid recipients:  Upon withdrawing from the college during the first 60% of the enrollment period, a student earns Federal Title IV funds in direct proportion to the length of time he or she remains enrolled. That is, the percentage of time during the period that the student remains enrolled is the percentage of aid earned for that period that the student earned.  A student who remains enrolled beyond the 60% point earns all Federal aid for the period unless they have unofficially withdrawn from the College.

Example for Return of Title IV funds Calculation

A student officially withdraws from the college in the fourth week or on the 22nd day of the semester. The semester is defined as 15 weeks x 7 days per week or 105 days. The student’s total financial aid package is:

Lo​​an Type​​Amount
Subsidized Federal Direct Loan​​$2,709 (Gross Amt. $2,750)
​Federal Pell Grant​$1,350
To​tal Aid​​$4,059


Step One
22 days – 105 days in enrollment period = 21% of enrollment period completed

Percentage of aid earned  = 21%

Step Two
$5,059 total aid x 21% = $1,062.30 total aid earned

Step Three
$5,059 total aid – $1,062.39 total aid earned = $3,996.61 total aid unearned

Step Four
$3,996.61 unearned aid to be returned to Title IV Funds
