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.
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 College Program: All aid received in the form of York College scholarships, YCSL, YC Need Based loan, Endowed scholarships, institutional grants will be earned per day that the 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. 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 and at www.york.edu.)
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.
Room Damage deposit, less any costs for room repairs and/or prorated share of general student caused residence hall damage, will be returned within 30 days after exiting York College by applying the deposit to your account. If the account is paid in full, you may withdraw the credit balance. Checkout procedure is through the Resident Director. Improper checkout or failure to abide by the room lease agreement may result in the deposit being forfeited.
