  • It is the students’ responsibility to inform the Student Life Office if they are not returning for the following semester. If notification is not made, students may be liable for pro-ration on tuition, fees, room, and board.

Refund Policy for Title IV Funds

In addition to the institutional refund policy, the following regulations mandated by the Department of Education are applicable. If a student received any financial aid under federal Title IV programs (Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, Pell Grant, Perkins Loan, Federal Direct Student Loan and Federal Direct Parent Loan), a portion of these funds may need to be returned under the guidance of the federal formula, except the federal work study program.

Withdrawal Date

The day the student withdraws is the date (determined by the university):

• The student began the official withdrawal process prescribed by contacting the Student Life Office; or

• The student otherwise provided the University with official notification of the intent to withdraw; or

 • For the student who does not begin the school’s official withdrawal process or notify the school of the intent to withdraw, the midpoint of the period of enrollment for which Title IV assistance was disbursed (unless the institution can document a later date).

If the school determines the student did not begin the withdrawal process or notify the school of the intent to withdraw due to illness, accident, grievous personal loss, or other such circumstances beyond the student’s control, then the school may determine the appropriate withdrawal date.

Percent of Aid Earned

The percentage of the period of enrollment for which federal aid was awarded is determined by dividing the total number of calendar days within the period of enrollment into the number of calendar days completed as of the day the student withdrew.

The percentage of aid earned during this period is equal to the percentage of the term completed. The percentage of “unearned” aid is determined by subtracting earned aid from 100%. The University is required to return the lesser of the unearned aid percentage applied to the institutional charges and the unearned percentage applied to total federal aid received.

Once 60% of the semester is completed, a student is considered to have earned all of his/her financial aid and will not be required to return any funds.

If this calculation indicates that funds should be returned, a specific order of refund has been established by the federal government (as applicable):

1. To outstanding balances on federal Direct Loans (Unsubsidized Federal Direct Loan, Subsidized Federal Direct Loan, Federal Direct PLUS Loan)

2. To the federal Perkins loan

3. To the federal Pell Grant

4. To the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant

5. To other Title IV assistance

6. To other federal, state, private, or institutional aid

7. To the student

When aid is returned, a student may owe an outstanding balance to the University. In this case, it his/her responsibility to contact Trinity Central to make payment arrangements.

For additional information on refunds to Title IV sources, please contact the Office of Student Financial Services at 847.317.4200.

Refunds will be paid within 30 days of a student’s official withdrawal. 

Credit Balances on Student Accounts Policy

In the event that a credit is generated on the student account due to overpayment, grants or from student loan funds, the credit will be requested in the form of a refund check within 14 business days of the posting date. Should a credit be created due to a drop or withdrawal, a refund check will be requested to the student or a return of funds to the lender within 30 days due to the necessary adjustment(s) required for various departments (e.g Business Office tuition adjustment and fees, Financial Aid adjustments (R2T4), and library fines). On the first week of every month, any credit pending will be audited for proper request.
