Financial Aid Refund and Repayment
Students enrolled at Stevens Institute of Technology who are receiving federal Title IV financial aid (e.g., federal Direct, Direct PLUS, or Perkins loans; federal Pell or federal Seog grant funds) are required to return the portion of their unearned Title IV financial aid if they withdraw or otherwise fail to complete the period of enrollment for which the Title IV aid was provided. The return of funds does not apply to any student whose date of withdrawal is beyond the 60 percent point of the enrollment period for which the student has been charged. The last date of attendance is determined by the date the student began the Instituteís official withdrawal process, the studentís last date of verified attendance (e.g. turning in home work or taking test), or the midpoint of the semester for a student who leaves without notifying the Institute.
To determine the percentage of aid earned, divide the number of calendar days completed by the total number of calendar days in the enrollment period (excluding scheduled breaks of five days or more AND days that the student is on approved leave of absence).
Federal financial aid is returned to the program from which it was disbursed based on the percentage of unearned aid. To determine the percentage of unearned aid, subtract the percentage of aid earned from 100. The percentage of unearned aid is then multiplied by the amount of aid disbursed toward allowable institutional charges (e.g., tuition, room, and board).
Generally speaking, fees are non-refundable (i.e. student activity, registration, late payment, laboratory, matriculation, transcript, technology, and other special fees), A refund schedule of tuition and room and board charges based on a 15-week semester breakdown; please see schedule below.
