Return and Repayment of Federal student aid

If a Bright Futures recipient drops a class after the advertised add/drop date, (see Academic Calendar) he/she is required by the state of Florida to repay FGCU for Bright Futures credits paid. A hold will be placed on the account until payment is received.

Federal Aid

Return of Title IV Funds (Federal Aid)

The Federal Government requires FGCU to return Financial Aid (Title IV) money to the appropriate Title IV programs for any student withdrawing before the 60% point of the semester. Students withdrawing that utilized Title IV aid for that term may owe the University a balance once the Title IV aid is returned.
