Forsyth Tech Attendance Requirement

Students must attend classes to be eligible for aid. Students who stop attending all courses and/or officially withdraw from all courses and are receiving federal financial aid or state grants are only eligible for the portion of financial aid that corresponds to the amount of time they attended as prescribed by federal and state regulations.

Students are considered to “earn” their financial aid by attending class. Students who stop attending all courses after the 60 percent point of their classes are considered to have earned 100 percent of their aid. However, withdrawals still impact Satisfactory Academic Progress.

Students who withdraw or stop attending courses before the 60 percent point has been reached are required to repay the U.S. Department of Education any “unearned” funds; this is done in a process called R2T4 (Return of Title IV Funds). Students who never attend courses or are reported as “no shows” are not entitled to any aid for those courses. However, it is possible that students may still be responsible for tuition/fees for “no show” courses.

For a complete Return of Title IV funds policy, please visit the Office of Student Financial Services or call 336.734.7235.
