Return of Aid Policies

Aid received by outside sources, excluding payments on account, York College, and all Title IV programs will be returned to the sources they came from according to the following policies. Please be aware that having financial aid to cover your charges at the beginning of the term or semester does not ensure that your financial aid will completely cover your charges at the time of withdrawal. 
 
Title IV Programs: All aid received in the form of Pell grants, SEOG, State Grants, Perkins Loan, Stafford loans, PLUS loans, Robert Byrd scholarships, will be earned per day that student is enrolled at York College until the 60% point in the semester. After this 60% point in time, all aid is considered to have been earned by the student and repayment of funds will not be calculated.
 
York University Program: All aid received in the form of York University scholarships, YUSL, YU Need-Based loan, Endowed scholarships, institutional grants will be earned per day that the student is enrolled at York University until the 60% point in the semester. After this 60% point in time, all aid is considered to have been earned by the student and repayment of funds will not be calculated. The calculation for determining amount of earned funds will be to divide the number of days a student is enrolled in classes into the number of days in the semester. (Thanksgiving break and Spring break are not counted as days attended.) Summer school will be counted individually, as sessions require. The percentage of days will not be rounded, but used as is calculated. That percentage will be applied to each type of aid received by the student. Once the calculations are finished, the amount of unearned aid is determined per Title IV software. (See calculation worksheets in Student Consumer Information)
 
Outside Scholarships: Once an outside scholarship is validated and applied to a student's account, there will be no return of the funds. Unearned aid that is determined to be returned to the government through the Title IV programs will be the responsibility of the student.
 
Enrollment Deposit: will be returned upon request within 30 days after exiting York University by applying the deposit to your account. If the account is paid in full, you may withdraw the credit balance. Refund requests can be emailed to studentaccounts@york.edu.
