    Student Receiving Financial Assistance

    Financial aid recipients must have their accounts reviewed and approved by the Office of Student Financial Services before a refund may be issued. If a student’s financial aid is adjusted, a student may owe back for refunds issued to the Federal Department of Education or Florida Department of Education based on the original aid amount disbursed. Adjustments to financial aid can be the result of a change in credit hours, a change in the student’s eligibility for certain types of aid or failure to meet satisfactory academic progress (SAP).

    Students receiving financial assistance covered by Title IV of the 1992 Higher Education Act who officially withdraw will receive a refund in accordance with the Higher Education Amendments of 1998. Hodges University will determine how much Title IV aid a student has received and not earned at the time of complete withdrawal. The amount of aid earned is calculated on a prorated basis.

    Refund Information

    As each course begins for a student’s month start period (4-month period), the student’s financial aid eligibility will be evaluated based on their enrollment status to determine if/when financial aid is disbursed and if/when a student will receive a refund. A student’s enrollment status is based on the credit hours they are actively enrolled in.

    Students should be aware that they will not receive a refund until all tuition and fee charges have been paid in full. The earliest any credit may be produced on a student’s account will be at least 32 days after tuition and fee charges have been paid in full.

    Please see the Enrollment Status Guide below to review a student’s financial aid eligibility based on active credit hours.
