Complete Withdrawal Policy:
If you completely withdraw (officially or unofficially) the Financial Aid Office is required to calculate the adjusted award amount you are eligible to receive based on your last date of attendance. You must return award money for the portion of the semester you did not attend.
You will receive a letter from our office notifying you of your obligation. Depending on the calculation, you may owe money back to BC3 and The Department of Education. Any monies owed to The Department of Education are defined as "overpayment" and will restrict you from receiving federal financial aid at any institution.
