A student who does not begin attending classes is not eligible for any type of financial aid. Aid is based on the number of credits for which a student is registered at the end of the drop/add period. Students who have withdrawn by this time will not receive any financial aid for that term.
When a student begins classes and subsequently withdraws, financial aid is subject to adjustment, depending on the withdrawal date and the type of financial aid (see Withdrawal Policy in the Academic Information section). The adjustment will involve a determination of how much of the student’s financial aid was “earned” and how much was “unearned” or was excess aid. Earned financial aid will be retained in the student’s account to apply to his or her charges. If a student received excess funds, FHCHS must return a portion of the excess equal to the lesser of (a) the institutional charges multiplied by the unearned percentage of the student’s funds, or (b) the entire amount of the excess funds.
