                                RETURN OF FINANCIAL AID FUNDS
Palo Verde College will determine the amount of federal financial aid that a student has earned in accordance with federal law.
Federal Grant recipients that withdraw from ALL their classes (prior to 60% of the semester) or receive all F’s or F’s and W’s will be held responsible for all funds that Palo Verde College owes back after the Return to Title IV calculation is performed. Should the student fail to repay these funds there will be a hold placed on their records and they will not be able to enroll in the future. See Refunds and Return of Title IV Funds section.
See a counselor or advisor immediately and discuss your academic or personal reasons for leaving. Maybe there are services (such as tutoring or personal support) that will help you remain in school. Speak with your teachers; see what advice and assistance they can offer.
Please work with the Financial Aid Office. If it is determined that you owe money back to the federal program, you can arrange for regular payments with the federal government without losing your student aid eligibility. It is important to take care of the details before you go. If you leave without making arrangements for repayment of funds you owe, the Financial Aid Office will put a national hold on your student aid eligibility.
