A grade of “W” is assigned to a student who officially withdraws or is unofficially withdrawn from the institution or from a course prior to 70 percent of the term being completed. This specified date is included in the student calendar for each term. It is the responsibility of the student to become familiar with the dates in the student calendar in order to know the exact withdrawal dates. A student who is officially withdrawn or is unofficially withdrawn from the institution after 70 percent of the semester has been completed will receive the grades that he/she has earned at that time of withdrawal. A grade of “W” earns zero quality points and, for financial aid purposes, is counted in hours attempted by the student. Students who withdraw from classes after receiving Title IV aid face the possibility of being placed on financial aid suspension. Additionally, financial aid recipients who completely withdraw are subject to the Federal Return of Title IV Funds Policy (R2T4). This policy may require Title IV recipients who completely withdraw from all classes before completing 60% of either the semester or the term to repay a portion of any grant funds received to the Title IV Programs.



Funds governed under Title IV of the Higher Education Act. Title IV Funds include:

  • Federal Pell Grants
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants
  • Federal Work-Study

For purposes of complete withdrawal and the Return of Title IV Formula, Federal Work-Study is not considered.
