A student receiving federal financial assistance may have his/her financial aid adjusted based on his/her date of official or unofficial withdrawal.
Procedure for Repaying the US Government
If you owe a repayment of grants to the US Government, you will remain ineligible for federal aid until you resolve your repayment. If you owe a repayment for grants received at WITCC, it may be possible to resolve your repayment at the Student Accounts Office. Contact the Student Accounts Office for details.
If you do not contact the Student Accounts Office within 15 days of receiving notice and schedule your repayment, you will be turned over to the US Department of Education for collection. If you are referred to the Department of Education, you will remain ineligible for federal aid until the college receives notice from the Department of Education that you have re-established your eligibility.
Carefully read all correspondence received from WITCC in case there is a change in your financial obligation to the college or your financial aid eligibility.
If you have any question about the effect of the Return of Funds to the federal aid programs, contact the Financial Aid Office.
