Return of Title IV Funds (Federal Aid)

The federal government requires SRU to return Financial Aid (Title IV) money to the Title IV programs for any student withdrawing through 60% of the session.  Students withdrawing Title IV aid may owe the university a balance once the aid is returned.  Title IV aid must be returned to the Title IV program before any refund can be returned to a student.
