Students Withdrawing from UAMS – Financial Aid Recipients

According to Federal Regulations, a Title IV Return of Funds calculation will be processed for those students who withdraw after receiving federal financial aid (Pell Grant, SEOG, subsidized Stafford Loan, unsubsidized Stafford Loan, parent PLUS loan or Perkins). The calculation is based on the number of days the student attended divided by the number of days in the term. The results of the calculation determine how much financial aid the student has earned. After 60% of the term has passed, the student is considered to have earned 100% of his/her aid. If the student has not earned 100% of his/her aid, the portion of the “unearned” aid is returned to the Title IV programs stated above. After the Return of Title IV financial aid calculation is processed, a student may owe a balance to UAMS. It is the student’s responsibility to make arrangements for payment of the balance with the Bursar’s Office.

Housing refunds for students who withdraw shall be subject to the rules established by Campus Life and Student Support Services.
