A student may be reinstated to “satisfactory” status once their GPA is at least a 2.0, and they have completed the minimum number of semester units for program progress.
In accordance with Higher Education Amendments of 1998 students who receive federal financial assistance and withdraw from all of their classes before completing more than 60% of the semester will be required to return any unearned federal funds. The amount of the return will be calculated on a pro-rated basis. FWS earnings are excluded from the calculation. PVCC uses the aggregate matching method for FSEOG, so only the federal portion of FSEOG will be included in the calculation.

The Financial Aid Office will return any funds due from the institution while simultaneously notifying the student of any funds they may owe or offer the student any unearned funds which were not disbursed. This process will occur within a thirty day period. For students who do not officially withdraw, final transcripts will be used to determine the withdrawal date and PVCC will return funds and notify students within 30 days of receipt of final transcripts.The percentage of Title IV aid earned will be calculated by counting the number of days from the beginning of the semester to the withdrawal date and dividing that number by the number
of calendar days in the semester. Once that percentage is determined the Return to Title IV calculation is performed using the districts Colleague program to determine any amount the institution may owe, and/or the student as well as any required offer of a post-withdrawal disbursement. If the student owes any money or if they are entitled to additional funds, the
