Withdrawing from Lycoming
Students wishing to withdraw from the College
during the semester should meet with the Dean of
First-Year Students or the Assistant Dean of Academic
Services to ensure that their financial and academic
records are properly closed. If you stop attending
classes and receive a grade of “F” in all your classes,
you may be considered to have unofficially with- drawn.
The Financial Aid Office is required to recalcu-
late federal financial aid eligibility for students who
withdraw, drop out, are dismissed or take a leave of
absence prior to completing the semester. Up through
60 percent of the semester, a pro rata schedule is used
to determine how much federal aid the student has
earned at the time of withdrawal. The portion of
un- earned aid must be returned to the federal
programs. When unearned aid is returned, a student
may owe the College additional funds.
The College’s Return of Title IV Funds Policy is
available in the Financial Aid Office or online athttp://www.lycoming.edu/catalog/financial.aspx
