Financial Aid 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 the withdrawal up to the 60% point of a student’s enrollment. Unearned aid will be returned to the U.S. Department of Education and the student is responsible to the college for the balance which results.
For students who unofficially withdraw from the term, federal financial aid regulations allow that a student’s aid be prorated based on presumed attendance through the half-way point.
If a student withdraws from a course, but is registered 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 from 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 balances that results from the calculation. The only exception is when the student stops attending due to military obligation.
Questions on these polices may be directed to:
Office of Financial Aid | 603-513-1392
Student Accounts Office | 603-513-1330
The Student Accounts Office’s core mission is to serve the College community by establishing and maintaining business practices that will enable staff to provide consistent information and quality service to all students, faculty, staff, and vendors. The Office generates bills, processes payments and refunds, and assists students in understanding and managing their accounts and payment obligations. This includes scholarship payments, veteran’s benefits, vocational rehabilitation or other third party payments and the Tuition Management System’s (now known as Nelnet Campus Commerce) interest-free monthly payment plan.
Note: Students are responsible for the status of their accounts and should contact the Student Accounts Office immediately with questions or concerns about accounts, or if there have been changes in any payment arrangements.

Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997
The College is required to file form 1098-T with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service to report certain enrollment and identifying information for payments received toward “Qualified Tuition and Related Expenses”in a tax year. IRS Form 1098-T provides information from educational institutions to students which may be of use in determining a student’s eligibility for tax credits (American Opportunity Tax Credit or Lifetime Learning Credit). In order to provide this information, the first time an individual registers, their social security number will be required.
Granite State College uses multiple methods to communication with students. The College-provided go.granite.edu account is the preferred method of communication, but students are responsible for monitoring their personal accounts for College correspondence, as well as the following:
- Billing statements, unofficial transcripts, registration information, grades, and financial information are available via the College’s secure web portal, WebROCK.
- In some instances, students will receive email correspondence directing them to WebROCK, where they can access confidential information only after logging into their secure account.
- Course materials are available via the electronic learning platform eLearning+(Moodle).
- Some documents (i.e. diplomas, transcripts) may be sent to the student’s permanent postal address. It is the student’s responsibility to notify the College of a change to this address via WebROCK.
