Financial Aid Refunds

Tuition Refunds

Students are eligible for a refund of tuition and fees for courses dropped during the Add/Drop period for the course. For courses that do not follow the twelve week schedule, specific drop dates are noted in the course schedule or posted at https://www.granite.edu/become-a-student/calendars/academic-calendar/. After the Add/ Drop deadline there will be no refund of tuition or fees. For specific information on dropping courses please refer to the “Dropping Courses” section.

Aid Returns for Withdrawals

If a student receiving federal financial aid officially (W) or unofficially (AF) withdraws from coursework in a term or from a degree program, return policies designated by the U.S. Department of Education will apply. A prorated schedule is used to determine the amount of federal aid a student has earned at the time of withdrawal up to the 60% point of a student’s enrollment. If grant and/or loan funds are returned to the federal funding source, the student will be responsible for any tuition charges remaining after the return. If a student withdraws from a course, but is registered or plans to register for a late start course in the same term (and the drop date has not passed for the late start course), then written confirmation of the student’s intent to return is required to be provided to the Office of Financial Aid or a return calculation will be performed.

Students receiving aid through the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Federal Tuition Assistance program are subject to the same prorated schedule of returning unearned aid if the student officially or unofficially withdraws for a course(s). The calculation will be based on the student’s last date of attendance in the course(s). The unearned aid will be returned to the DoD. Students are responsible for any balance that results from the calculation. The only exception is when the student stops attending due to military obligation.
