Return of Title IV Financial Aid (R2T4)
Federal financial aid recipients who are terminated or voluntarily withdraw from the School of Practical Nursing before completing more than 60 percent of their enrollment period, are subject to a proration of any federal aid (Federal Pell Grants and Federal Direct Loans) awarded. The percentage of earned aid is calculated by the number of clock hours scheduled as of the student’s Last Date of attendance (according to the official school attendance records), divided by the total number of clock hours during the enrollment period.
Once the student has completed more than 60 percent of their enrollment period, he/she has earned all of the federal financial aid to which they were entitled.
Genesee Valley BOCES takes all or a portion of the student’s earned federal financial aid to pay any outstanding charges that remain on their school account. In accordance with federal regulations, any unearned federal financial aid funds determined in the R2T4 calculation are returned (within 45 days of the student’s withdrawal date) in the following order, if applicable:
- Federal Direct Loan, Unsubsidized
- Federal Direct Loan, Subsidized
- Federal Direct Loan, PLUS
- Federal Pell Grant
- Other state, private, and institutional aid
