Disbursement and Credit Balance
If the total credits, including any cash payments you make, exceed the term bill, a refund will be processed for you through the Financial Aid Office.
Verification (Federal Financial Aid)
Students or parents who file an amended return (IRS Form 1040X) cannot use the IRS DRT, and if they amend the return after using the DRT to fill out the FAFSA, you cannot rely on that data. Instead, you will need to use information from the following documents to complete verification:
- An IRS tax return transcript that includes information from the original tax return OR any other IRS tax transcript that includes all income and tax information from the original tax return required for verification (neither of which has to be signed) signed copy of the original tax return that was filed, or a tax return transcript (which does not have to be signed); and
- A signed copy of the 1040X form that was filed with the IRS.
Withdrawal and Refund Policy
Return of Federal Student Aid (Title IV) Funds
College Unbound students who are FSA recipients and withdraw from ALL of their classes prior to the end of the term, are subject to Federal student aid regulations known as Return to Title IV (R2T4). The calculation for return of FSA funds will determine the amount of grant and loan assistance a student “earned” for the term they were enrollment at the College. The R2T4 calculation is a proration of funds received for the term and will be completed by the Financial Aid Office.
Students who withdraw prior to the 60% point of a term have only earned a portion of the FSA they were awarded. A proration schedule is used to determine the amount of FSA funds the student has earned at the time of withdrawal. AFTER the 60 percent point in the term, the student has earned 100 percent of the FSA funds they are scheduled to receive during that term.

Student Account Adjustments
The federal government uses a formula to determine your Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) and your Cost of Attendance (based on your enrollment) that will determine how much, if any, aid you receive. To receive aid, you must not be in default on any previous federal student loans. You also must make Satisfactory Academic Progress as outlined in the Academic Catalog.
You may receive a Pell Grant that does not need to be repaid. You may also qualify for federal student loans that must be repaid with interest. College Unbound strives to ensure affordability and urges students to contact a financial aid advisor before accepting federal loans.
