Withdrawing and Your Financial Aid

If you decide to leave Alma during the school year, there will be a few changes to your financial aid.  We will do our best to assist you with this process.  Please see the changes detailed below.

In the event you withdraw (officially or unofficially), Alma College will determine the amount of Alma Aid and Federal Aid (Title IV Aid) that you have earned up to that point in the term.  Please see the chart below to determine how much your Alma Aid will be reduced:



Title IV Aid

The requirement for federal Title IV aid when you withdraw are separate from Alma College’s institutional refund policy.  Therefore, you may still owe funds to Alma College to cover unpaid institutional charges.  Alma College may also charge you for any Title IV aid that we were required to return.  Alma College’s institutional Student Account Refund Signature Page is available on the Financial Services Office page.
