Financial Aid Refund/Repayment Policy: Financial Aid is awarded to students to cover direct costs charged by the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and other related educational costs. Funds disbursed to students may exceed these costs when a student withdraws or drops classes during a semester or summer session. Fee refunds of financial aid programs will be processed by the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. Federal and state regulations require that a prorated portion of funds awarded to cover non-institutional costs be repaid by the student.
Students should refer to the Timetable for details regarding Financial Aid Refund/Repayment policies. The actual repayment shall be determined by the Financial Aid Office. Students will receive a statement from University Financial Services and repayments will be made to that office. Students remain INELIGIBLE for future financial aid disbursements until repayment is made in full.
Students who withdraw during the first semester, but plan to return spring semester, must submit WRITTEN notification to the Financial Aid Office so that aid may be reinstated and/or revised. If they fail to notify the Financial Aid Office, the aid will automatically be cancelled.
