Unofficial Withdrawal Policy
Columbia, SC 29204
Students receiving federal Title IV financial aid, who do not pass any courses and who do not officially withdraw from the College are considered “unofficially withdrawn.” The following procedures are used to determine if students never attend class and/or withdraw unofficially, and to determine repayments due back to aid programs.
At the end of each semester, a report is generated of all students who have Title IV federal aid and who have a semester GPA of 0.00. Those students who have all “F‘s” are assumed to be ‘unofficially withdrawn’.
The last date of attendance as reported by any of the instructors is determined and used in the Return of Title IV Funds calculation.
If a last day of attendance cannot otherwise be determined, the student is assumed to have attended 50% of the enrollment period and the formula is calculated based on that length of attendance.
