Return of Title IV Funds

The following governs the return of Title IV funds disbursed for students at South Arkansas College. This policy applies to students receiving Title IV funds, which includes the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), and Federal Direct Loans (Subsidized and Unsubsidized) who officially withdraw, stop attending, drop out, are expelled, take a qualified leave of absence or fails to return from an approved leave of absence.

A student is said to have officially withdrawn when they have completed either of the following steps: 1) pick up and complete a Drop/Add Form at the Registrar’s Office; or 2) download and complete the Drop/Add form found under the Student Forms on the website. Follow the instructions on that form on how to return the form to the Registrar’s Office for input. Refer to the Changing a Schedule/Dropping and Adding Courses section of the South Arkansas College catalog and website for a more detailed listing of the procedures for officially withdrawing from college.

Failure to attend class or failure to follow the official withdrawal procedures could cause a student to receive a letter grade of F, I, NC, WE or WF in all courses. In this case, the Return to Title IV Policy would still apply once an official last date of attendance is established.
