Student Handbook

Student Repayment of Title IV Funds to the Department of Education

Within 45 days of notice, the student must make full payment of the amount owed back to the federal government because of over payment or returns due to withdrawal or dismissal from the College. During this initial 45 days, the student must make payment to the school. If the student does not make payment in the full during the 45-day period, the student will lose eligibility for additional Title IV funds at any school.

After the 45-day period, the Tennessee College of Applied Technology will report the amount owed to the Department of Education and the student will be required to make payment arrangements with the Department of Education before being eligible to receive future Title IV assistance at any school.

Note that the student is not responsible for returning funds to any grant program to which the student owes $50.00 or less.
