The amount of Title IV program assistance earned has no relationship to the student's incurred institutional charges.

Tuition charges for full-time students who drop to part-time status during the institutional refund period, but do not withdraw, will be prorated. Proration will be based on the current full-time tuition charge and divided by 15 hours of study. This will determine a per credit hour rate charge. Full-time institutional aid will be canceled if a student drops to part-time during the refund period. Federal aid will be adjusted accordingly. Tuition for students who drop to part-time status after the refund period will not be prorated.

Tuition charges for part-time students who drop a class/classes and remain part-time status during the institutional refund period, but do not withdraw, will be prorated.
