Treatment of Title IV (Federal) Aid When a Student Withdraws
Lebanon Valley College is required by federal statute to determine how much financial aid was earned by students who withdraw, drop out, are dismissed, or take a leave of absence prior to completing 60 percent of a payment period or term. The Title IV programs that are covered by this statute are: Federal Pell Grants, Stafford Loans, PLUS Loans, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOGs), Federal Perkins Loans, and in some cases, certain state grant aid to students.
For a student who withdraws after the 60 percent point-in-time, there are no unearned funds. However, a school must still complete a Return calculation in order to determine whether the student is eligible for a post-withdrawal disbursement.
The calculation is based on the percentage of earned aid using the following Federal Return of Title IV funds formula:
Percentage of payment period or term completed = the number of days completed up to the withdrawal date divided by the total days in the term. (Any break of five days or more is not counted as part of the days in the term.) This percentage is also the percentage of earned aid.
Funds are returned to the appropriate federal program based on the percentage of unearned aid using the following formula:
- Aid to be returned = (100 percent of the aid that could be disbursed minus the percentage of earned aid) multiplied by the total amount of aid that could have been disbursed during the payment period or term.
- If a student earned less aid than was disbursed, the institution would be required to return a portion of the funds and the student would be required to return a portion of the funds. Keep in mind, that when Title IV funds are returned, the student borrower may owe a debit balance to the institution.
- If a student earned more aid than was disbursed to him/her, the institution would owe the student a post-withdrawal disbursement, which must be paid within 120 days of the student’s withdrawal.
The institution must return the amount of Title IV funds for which it is responsible no later than 45 days after the date of the determination of the date of the student’s withdrawal.
Refunds are allocated in the following order:
- Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loans
- Subsidized Federal Stafford Loans
- Federal Perkins Loans
- Federal Parent (PLUS) Loans
- Federal Pell Grants for which a Return of funds is required
- Academic Competitiveness Grants for which a return of funds is required
- National Smart Grants for which a return of funds is required
- Federal Supplemental Opportunity Grants for which a return of funds is required
- Federal TEACH Grants for which a return of funds is required
There are some Title IV funds that you were scheduled to receive that you cannot earn once you withdraw because of other eligibility requirements. For example, if you are a first time, first-year undergraduate student and you have not completed the first two weeks of your program before you withdraw, you will not earn any Stafford loan funds that you would have received had you remained enrolled past the second week.
If you receive (or Lebanon Valley College or your parent receive on your behalf ) excess Title IV program funds that must be returned, Lebanon Valley College must return a portion of the excess equal to the lesser of:
1. your institutional charges multiplied by the unearned percentage of your funds, or
2. the entire amount of excess funds.
The school must return this amount even if it didn’t keep this amount of your Title IV program funds. If Lebanon Valley College is not required to return all of the excess funds, you must return the remaining amount. Any loan funds that you must return, you (or your parent for a PLUS Loan) repay in accordance with the terms of the promissory note. That is, you make scheduled payments to the holder of the loan over a period of time.
Any amount of unearned grant funds that you must return is called an overpayment. The amount of a grant overpayment that you must repay is half of the unearned amount. You must arrange with Lebanon Valley College or the Department of Education to return the unearned grant funds.
NOTE: The federal government requires that all full-time students make satisfactory academic progress toward a degree or certificate. Please visit www.lvc.edu/financial-aid to view the Academic Progress policy and requirements.
Treatment of Non-Title IV Aid When a Student Withdraws
Lebanon Valley College follows guidelines for Title IV programs (see above) when calculating the amount of institutional and/or state aid and/or private loans/scholarships that you have earned up to the point of withdrawal. Types of aid covered by this policy include but are not limited to Presidential Scholarships (such as Vickroy, Leadership, and Achievement Awards), LVC Grant-In-Aid, institutional scholarships, PHEAA State Grant, and/or any other state administered grant funds.
When you withdraw during your period of enrollment the amount of non-Title IV assistance that you have earned up to that point is determined by the same specific formula used to calculate Title IV funds earned. If you received more assistance than you earned, the excess funds must be returned by Lebanon Valley College and/or you.
Once you have completed more than 60 percent of the period of enrollment, you earn all the assistance that you were scheduled to receive for that period.
Military Education Benefits fall under the Non-Title IV policy; however, some exceptions may apply due to specific Department of Defense and VA regulations.
Treatment of Institutional Charges When a Student Withdraws
Lebanon Valley College follows guidelines for Title IV programs (above) when calculating the amount of unearned institutional charges to be refunded. Charges eligible for refund are tuition, room, board*, private music lessons, and overload charges.
Once you have completed more than 60 percent of the period of enrollment, you have earned all of the charges billed for that period.
*All Gold, Silver, and Bronze level meal plans include $50 in flex dollars to be used in LVC dining facilities. If a student withdraws prior to the semester end, LVC will refund unused flex dollars. In the case of student withdrawal, the $50 flex dollars will be considered separate from the remainder of the board plan, for refund purposes.
Standard Term Part-Time Students - Refunds
Full tuition is refunded if withdrawal notification is received before the second day of class. Full tuition is refundable if the course is cancelled by the College. See the current refund table as posted on the professional studies tuition and fees website for specific dates for partial refunds. Students receiving federal financial assistance (Title IV) and who are enrolled in traditional term courses will receive a refund according to federal policy as noted above.
Non-Standard Term Part-Time Students - Refunds
Students enrolled in one or more non-term courses (modules) and no courses span the entire semester follow federal policy with the following clarifications:
- If a student fails to complete all modules scheduled for a semester, the student is considered a withdrawal at the time the student ceases attendance.
- If a student withdrawals from a module but indicates in writing to the College that he or she will attend a later module during the same semester, the student is not considered a withdrawal. If the student fails to attend the later module, the date of withdrawal reverts to the original withdrawal from the prior module. The later module will be included in the period of enrollment.
- Without written confirmation of the student’s intent to attend a later module in the same semester, a student who withdrawals from a module or has ceased attendance is considered a withdrawal.
- If a student begins but fails to complete the final module(s) in a semester, the student is considered to have withdrawn.
- If a student receives a failing grade for the final module(s) in a semester, the College must determine if the student ceased attending and is therefore considered a withdrawal.
The Return of Title IV Funds calculation process will begin as soon as possible after it is determined that a student has withdrawn or ceased attendance. The institution must return the amount of Title IV funds for which it is responsible no later than 45 days after determining the date of the student’s withdrawal. If the student returns for a later module in the payment period, the Return of Title IV Funds will be reversed.

Dining Services Policies
All resident students must present their Dutchman OneCard for admission into any of the dining facilities. The ID card is non-transferable. Only one meal exchange is allowed per meal period. Students can exit the dining hall and dine in the lounge adjacent to the dining hall, but must swipe their ID card once again when re-entering the dining hall. This is to protect against unauthorized entry, which will result in appropriate judicial/student conduct action. If you lose your card, contact the IT Department immediately to get a new card admin- istered as students can only enter three times without a card. There is a charge to replace a lost ID card.
Students are expected to maintain order and cleanliness in the dining facilities. Any student witnessed acting in a disruptive way in any dining facility will be asked to leave by dining services management. Public safety and student affairs staff will be notified immediately. The student(s) may lose their dining hall privileges for the remainder of the school year, or other appropriate action(s).
Guests of students are welcome to join them anytime in any of the dining facilities. In the Mund Dining Hall, students may use their meal wipes (no longer limited to non-student guests), Flex Dollars, or Cash/Credit to host their guest.
In an effort to maintain services for all students, administration, faculty, staff, and guests, Mund Dining Hall is either Dine In or Take Out, not both. We want all of our guests to get what they like. We just ask that you be mindful of waste and eat what you take as we serve more than 1,200 guests during each meal. If you eat in the dining room, you only can take one dessert or one piece of fruit to go. Please be advised that door checkers will be monitoring this very closely.
Green Take Out Program - LVC Sustainability Initiative
In an effort to improve our campus “Green” practices and to support our LVC Sustainability:
- Students will be provided a free take out reusable cup this year. The first week in the dining hall, a member of the dining team will distribute them. Please stop by and pick up your free reusable cup. Students can bring this cup into the dining hall for take-out beverages with all meal punches. If you lose your cup, you may purchase a new one for $5.
- Reusable take-out containers are provided for an initial fee of $5. Students need to bring the take out container back for reuse when you wish to take out a meal from the dining hall. After bringing the container back, students are given a clean container for their next take out meal. At the end of the semester, students can return the container for a $5 reimbursement or they may keep the container for use in the future.
Flex Dollars on the OneCard can be used as a debit card to make purchases in any of the Metz Culinary Management dining facilities. The Mund Dining Hall, InterMetzo, Dutchmen Den, and Bishop Brews are great venues for students to use flex dollars. Extra Flex Dollars can be added in $50 increments by contacting dining services.
Unused Flex Dollars are carried over from fall to spring semester. Unused Flex Dollars are lost if not used by the end of each academic year (end of the spring semester).
Special Diet Considerations
Students who follow a special diet, have severe allergies or special medical needs, should contact the operations manager at 717-867-6719 or the general manager of dining services at 717-867-6117.

While the College is not responsible for the loss of or damage to personal property, students should report such losses or damage to College public safety personnel. The College encourages students to insure personal belongings and will assist with security matters.
Safety and Security Reporting
Dial 6111 from any campus extension, or 717–867–6111 from an outside phone to reach public safety. When calling, always be as specific as possible, providing your name and location.
Emergency telephones blue lights have been strategically placed on campus for your safety and convenience. Most of these telephones have blue lights mounted for easy identification. These phones will function as a normal campus extension if the red button is pushed. The telephone connects you with a public safety officer or dispatcher. Even if you cannot speak into the phone, a campus public safety officer will be dispatched to your location. Use these phones for security assistance, medical assistance, fire alert, emergency information, and the reporting of crimes or suspicious persons.
Lebanon Valley College encourages students, faculty, and staff to enroll voluntarily in a mass notification system from e2Campus. This system will enable enrollees to receive notification of an IMMEDIATE EMERGENT SITUATION, as well as weather delays and cancellations, via email and/or text message. The enrollee will have the opportunity to provide up to four points of contact (two cell phone numbers and two email addresses), which could include a parent or other family member. Enroll at www.lvc.edu/public-safety
On Campus Emergency
The campus siren will sound in the case of any emergent situation. Emergency notifications will follow via the e2Campus notification system. Emails and text messages will direct members of the campus community on the steps to take to ensure personal safety.

A personal identification card (Dutchman OneCard) with photograph is issued to each full-time student. The card identifies the student as a member of the College community and provides privileged admission to athletic events, the dining hall, library, Lebanon Valley College Sports Center, Yuhas Commons, and access to their assigned residential facility. The card must be shown if requested by public safety officers or other College personnel. Students must show their ID cards to make charges to their student accounts in the College Store; receive College work-aid checks; use the facilities and services of the Bishop Library; borrow equipment in the Mund College Center; enter the dining halls, dances, and LVC Sports Center.
Used for identification, the ID card should be carried at all times. Failure to show an ID card in response to a request by a College official will result in a judicial/student conduct action.
Lost or mutilated cards will be replaced at a charge. Please protect your card from rubbing against items as that may cause your swipe not to work properly. Also, do not punch a hole in your Dutchman OneCard ID or bend your card, as that will immediately disable your proximity chip. For assistance with lost or damaged ID cards, contact the Office of Information Technology. On withdrawal from the College, the ID card must be returned to the Office of Student Affairs.
Your ID card is not transferable. The transfer or loan of your ID card to another person is in violation of College policy.
