Return to Title IV (Receiving Federal Funds and Withdrawing)

ACC returns unearned funds received from Federal student assistance programs to the proper program accounts or lenders in accordance with Federal Title IV student assistance regulations, as amended, under 34CFR, section 668.22(d) of the Reauthorization of the Higher Education Act of 1965, with rules of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, and with Board Policies

  • The student receiving assistance from Federal Title IV programs is required to complete a minimum number of hours for which assistance was received. If the student completely withdraws from school during the semester, or quits attending, but fails to officially withdraw, the student may be required to return the unearned part of the funds which were received to help pay educational expenses for the semester. Liability for return to Federal Title IV funds will be determined according to the following guidelines:
    • If the student remains enrolled and attends class beyond the 60% mark of the semester in which aid was received, all federal aid is considered earned and not subject to this policy
    • If the student completely withdraws from all classes before completing 60% of the semester, a pro-rated portion of the federal aid received must be returned to the federal aid programs equal to the percentage of the semester remaining.
    • If the student does not officially withdraw and stops attending all classes, a pro- rated portion of the federal aid received, based on the documented last date of attendance, must be returned to the federal aid programs.
    • If a student ends the term with grades of all “FX” or combination of “FX or W” they are considered to have unofficially withdrawn, attendance in each class will be A pro-rated portion of the federal aid may be owed.
  • The ACC Financial Aid Office ensures the proper amounts are returned to the appropriate Title IV programs in a timely manner, and notifies the student within 15 days of the notice of withdrawal of his or her obligation to repay funds. The ACC Business Office also notifies the student of his or her obligation to repay any funds owed at the end of each  

The Business Office tracks repayment. The Financial Aid Office monitors the timing and responsibility for referring overpayments to the U.S. Department of Education.

Students can repay any funds owed through the Business Office. The Business Office accepts cash, money order or credit card. Students who owe a balance to ACC will have a hold placed on their student record. The hold can be released by the Business Office when the balance has been satisfied. Students who have an overpayment will be reported to National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) by the Financial Aid Office.
