Refund Policies

Full-time status is determined at the end of the first week of classes on the date indicated in the calendar as the last date to add classes. A full-time student who drops below 12 credits after this date will continue to be billed at full-time rates unless the student withdraws from the University.

A student withdrawing from the university should complete the official withdrawal form with the Office of Student Success. This form must be returned so that the university can calculate the refund, if any, of institutional charges and determine the amount of aid that may need to be refunded to the various sources.

If a recipient of Title IV aid unofficially withdraws from all classes without following the proper withdrawal procedure, Carroll University is required to determine the student’s last date of academically related activity to calculate whether a portion of the student’s federal financial aid must be returned to the federal government. The Financial Aid Office will use the last date of attendance reported by the professor(s) or will contact the student’s professor(s) to determine the last date a student completed any academically related activity.

A student who withdraws from the university may be eligible for a refund. The amount of the refund is determined by the student’s withdrawal date and the charges on the student’s account. The refund is calculated using 2 formulas;

  1. Carroll University’s refund policy
  2. Federal/State refund policy

A student who withdraws may be responsible for tuition, room and board, fees or other charges that had previously been paid by federal student aid. Refunds may be available for students with Title IV federal aid who withdraw from the University.

Students with federal aid who withdraw from the University will have their Title IV aid recalculated in accordance with guidelines established by the U.S. Department of Education derived from the October 7, 1998, Reauthorization of the Higher Education Act. “A school must return the amount of Title IV funds for which it is responsible as soon as possible but no later than 45 days after it determines or should have determined that a student withdrew.”

If a student withdraws after his/her aid was awarded, but prior to all aid having been disbursed, the unpaid aid will be included in the federal formula as aid that ‘could have been disbursed’. If the refund calculation indicates that the student is still eligible for the undisbursed aid, the aid will be offered to the student via a post withdrawal disbursement, which will be sent to the student in a written statement.

The federal formula provides a return of the Title IV aid if the student received federal financial assistance in the form of a Pell Grant, Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant, TEACH Grant, Iraq Afghanistan Service Grant, Subsidized and Unsubsidized Stafford Loans or PLUS Loans and withdraws on or before completing 60% of the semester. The percentage of Title IV aid earned is equal to the number of calendar days completed in the semester divided by the number of calendar days in the semester. Scheduled breaks of five or more days are excluded.

Pro-rated Title IV federal aid is returned to the respective federal programs in the following order:

  1. Federal DirectUnsubsidized Loan 
  2. Federal Direct Subsidized Loan 
  3. Federal Direct PLUS Loan 
  4. Federal Pell Grant Program
  5. Federal SEOG Program
  6. TEACH Grant Program
  7. Iraq Afghanistan Service Grant
  8. Any other assistance awarded to the student under programs authorized by Title IV HEA

For purposes of repayment, if funds are released to a student because of a credit balance on the student’s account, then the student may be required to repay some of the federal grants released to the student. Until the repayment is resolved, the student is ineligible for further Title IV assistance. These refund policies are based upon the rules and regulations of the U.S. Department of Education and are subject to change. Worksheets used to determine the amount of refund or return of Title IV aid are available upon request at the Carroll University Financial Aid Office.

All scholarships, grants, and loans must be credited to a student account before a refund check will be issued.

No refund of tuition, fees, room or board will be made to students dismissed or suspended from the University for disciplinary or academic reasons. Refunds of study abroad program registration fees are subject to regulations available in the Office of International Education.

Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 Financial Aid Schedule

Students who withdraw and have Carroll aid and/or aid other than Title IV will earn this aid according to the following schedule:

Fall 2020 Withdraw on or before: Percentage Spring 2021 Withdraw on or before: Percentage
Sunday, August 23, 2020 0% Sunday January 24, 2021 0%
14 days from the start of the semester 20% 14 days from the start of the semester 20%
15-21 days from the start of the semester 40% 15-21 days from the start of the semester 40%
22-28 days from the start of the semester 60% 22-28 days from the start of the semester 60%
29-35 days from the start of the semester 80% 29-35 days from the start of the semester 80%
After 35 days 100% After 35 days 100%

Specially Timed Courses

Students who withdraw from specially timed courses for the Fall 20 or Spring 21 semester and have Carroll aid and/or aid other than Title IV will earn this aid according to the following schedule:

Withdraw before the first day of class 0%
Withdraw before the second day of class 25%
Withdraw before the third day of class 75%
Withdraw the third day of class or after 100%


Federal or state financial aid for part-time students will be adjusted to reflect the final number of credits for which the student is enrolled on Monday, August 31, 2020 for the fall semester or on Monday February 1, 2021, for the spring semester. If enrollment on either one of these dates is for fewer than six credits, you may not be eligible for any financial aid.

Although the Financial Aid Census date (adjustment date for financial aid) is one week after the semester begins, we are required by federal law to review any students who received the Federal Pell Grant. Under federal regulations, students can only receive Federal Pell Grants for the classes they attended. The regulation states the following: If a student begins attending some but not all of his or her classes, the Financial Aid Office will have to recalculate the student’s Pell Grant award based on the student’s actual enrollment status. Therefore, if you receive a Federal Pell Grant, we will review your enrollment status throughout the semester.

Example:

A student withdrew 15 calendar days into a 105-calendar day term (number of days in a term may vary).  Charges of $5,000 were paid as follows:  $1,200 Federal Direct loan, $1,100 Federal Pell Grant, and $2,700 Carroll University scholarship.

In this example, under the federal return of Title IV policy, $1,200 would be returned to the Federal Direct Loan Program and $771 would be returned to the Federal Pell Grant Program.  Under Carroll University’s refund policy, based on the day of withdrawal, (60 percent = $3,000 tuition refund), $1,620.00 would be returned to the Carroll University scholarship fund.

Tuition, Room and Board Refunds 

  • Full or part-time students who withdraw from the University may be eligible for a tuition and/or room and board refund.
  • Part-time students who drop courses may be eligible for a tuition refund.
  • Tuition rates are charged regardless of the modality of course instruction (i.e., face-to-face, online or hybrid). Tuition will not be refunded or prorated in the event the University changes the modality of instruction as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Room and Board Refunds

Under Carroll University’s refund policy, based on the day of withdrawal, (60 percent = $3,000 tuition refund), $1,620 would be returned to the Carroll University scholarship fund.

Refund Policy for Veteran Students

Refund policy for military reservists called to active duty: The University recognizes the sacrifices that those in the armed services make while serving our country. We are proud to have these individuals as a part of our campus community and therefore maintain the following policy:

  • The student must provide the Registrar’s Office copies of official military orders. The student will then be automatically withdrawn from all of his/her courses for the given semester. The academic record will reflect the non-punitive “W.”
  • The student will be eligible for a full refund for tuition and course fees for any courses that are not completed during that semester/session.
  • Any room and board charges will be prorated based on the date in the semester the student is required to leave and the remaining amount will be refunded.

All students adding or dropping a course must do so in writing through the Registrar’s Office. Refunds are based on the date of the postmark of withdrawals sent by mail or on date of delivery of those brought in personally to the Registrar’s office. If a student drops from a credit class to an audit, the refund will be based on the credit course fee according to the refund policy. If a class is cancelled due to lack of enrollment, students registered for that class will be given a full refund.
