Student Withdrawals and Return of Title IV Funds
It is imperative to understand that failing grades and withdrawals will count against your satisfactory academic progress and could affect your financial aid status.
In October of 2000, the Higher Education Amendments of 1998, Public law 105-244, required colleges to notify students who received financial aid (Title IV Funds) and withdrew from all classes of the Return to Title IV Funds Policy. Therefore, if a student completely withdraws from college before the 60% point of the semester, that student may be required to return all or part of the aid he/she was awarded. Federal and State regulations also require that students receiving financial aid maintain satisfactory academic progress. This includes completing 67% of the total cumulative credit hours attempted at Mayland Community College.
It is the student’s responsibility to attend the first day of class. Failure to attend or failure to contact the instructor with the intent to attend may negatively impact a student’s financial aid award.
MCC Refund Policy
Tuition and fees may be refunded following the guidelines established by the North Carolina Administrative Code, which is subject to revision. Consult your advisor or Student Development for the latest regulations.
