Return of Title IV Federal Policy [Top]

Any student attending Bronx Community College who totally withdraws either officially or unofficially during the first 60% of the semester and is receiving Title IV Funds (PELL, SEOG, Federal Loans, etc.) will be subject to federal regulations regarding the amount of their financial aid entitlement. The percentage of federal financial aid granted is based on the official date of withdrawal from class, and is calculated based on a formula mandated by the federal government.

Students will owe the college if:

  • Any portion of their tuition and fees, book voucher and/or loan is not paid by financial aid.
  • They are no longer eligible for the Financial Aid they received in advance due to registration changes or non-attendance.
