Withdrawing From or Dropping Classes
Federal financial aid (Pell Grant and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) and Georgia's HOPE Scholarship, HOPE Grant, Zell Miller Grant, and Zell Miller Scholarship programs do not consider hours dropped during the drop/add period (usually the first three days of the semester) as registered hours for students. All HOPE funding for tuition of dropped classes is refunded to the Georgia Student Finance Commission.
If students withdraw from classes after the first three days of the academic term, HOPE will cover a portion of tuition provided students attended class during the first full week of the semester. The Financial Aid Office will recalculate the amount of Pell Grant and FSEOG awarded based on the Federal Return of Title IV Funds policy. Please consult with a financial aid counselor prior to withdrawing from a class. Withdrawing affects students' satisfactory academic progress.
