Refund of federal Title IV financial aid will be based on the date a student completely withdraws from WSU as described above. During the first 60% of the semester or summer term, a student earns Title IV funds in direct proportion to the length of time he or she remained enrolled. A student who remains enrolled beyond the 60% point earns all aid for the semester or summer term.The percentage of the semester or summer term that a student remains enrolled is derived by dividing the number of days a student remains in attendance by the number of days in a semester. Calendar days are used but breaks of at least 5 days are excluded from both the numerator and the denominator.Unearned federal Title IV aid other than federal work-study must be repaid in the following order:
Students must repay 100% of unearned loans according to the terms of their promissory note. Only 50% of unearned grants must be repaid within 30 days of withdrawal from Worcester State University.
