 RETURN OF TITLE IV (R2T4), HEA POLICY

When you apply for financial aid, you sign a statement that you will use the funds for educational purposes only. Therefore, if you withdraw before completing your program, a portion of the funds you received may have to be returned.   PARK PLACE PREMIER BARBER SCHOOL  will calculate the amount of tuition to be returned to the Title IV, HEA Federal fund programs according to the policies listed below.
This policy applies to students' who withdraw official, unofficially or fail to return from a leave of absence or dismissed from enrollment at PARK PLACE PREMIER BARBER SCHOOL . It is separate and distinct from the SCHOOL'S  refund policy. (Refer to institutional refund policy Student Handbook p. 6)

The calculated amount of the Return of Title IV, HEA  (R2T4) funds that are required for the students affected by this policy, are determined according to the following definitions and procedures as prescribed by regulations.

Title IV, HEA funds are awarded to the student under the assumption that he/she will attend school for the entire period for which the aid is awarded. When student withdraws, he/she may no longer be eligible for the full amount of Title IV, HEA funds that were originally scheduled to be received. Therefore, the amount of Federal funds earned must be determined. If the amount disbursed is greater than the amount earned, unearned funds must be returned.

The amount of assistance that you earned is determined on a pro rata basis. For example, if you completed 30% of your payment period or period of enrollment, you earned 30% of the assistance  you were originally scheduled to receive. Once you have completed more than 60% of the payment period or period of enrollment, you earn all the assistance that you were scheduled to receive for that period.

Title IV, HEA aid earned is based on the amount of time a student spent in academic attendance, and the total aid received; it has no relationship to student's incurred institutional charges. Because these requirements deal only with Title IV, HEA funds, the order of return of unearned funds do not include funds from sources other than the Title IV, HEA programs.

The institution has 45 days from the date that the institution determines that the student withdrew to return all unearned funds for which it is responsible. The school is required to notify the student if they owe a repayment via written notice.

The school must advise the student or parent that they have 14 calendar days from the date that the school sent the notification to accept a post withdraw disbursement. If a response is not received from the student or parent within the allowed time frame or the student declines the funds, the school will return any earned funds that the school is holding to the Title IV, HEA programs.

Treatment of Title IV, HEA Aid When a Student Withdraws

The law specifies how your school must determine the amount of Title IV, HEA program assistance that you earn if you withdraw from school. The Title IV, HEA programs that are covered by this law are: Federal Pell Grants, Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grants, TEACH Grants, Direct Loans, Direct PLUS Loans, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOGs), and Federal Perkins Loans.

Though your aid is posted to your account at the start of each period, you earn the funds as you complete the period. If you withdraw during your payment period or period of enrollment (your school can define these for you and tell you which one applies), the amount of Title IV, HEA program assistance that you have earned up to that point is determined by a specific formula. If you received (or your school or parent received on your behalf) less assistance than the amount that you earned, you may be able to receive those additional funds. If you received more assistance than you earned, the excess funds must be returned by the school and/or you.

The amount of assistance that you have earned is determined on a pro rata basis.  For example, if you completed 30% of your payment period or period of enrollment, you earn 30% of the assistance you were originally scheduled to receive. Once you have completed more than 60% of the payment period or period of enrollment, you earn all the assistance that you were scheduled to receive for that period.

"Official" Withdrawal from the School

A student is considered to be "Officially" withdrawn on the date the student notifies the Financial Aid Office or School Administrator in writing of their intent to withdraw. The date of the termination for return and refund purposes will be the earliest of the following for official withdrawal:

  1. Date student provided official notification of intent to withdraw, in writing or orally.
  2. The date the student began the withdrawal from PARK PLACE PREMIER BARBER SCHOOL, records. A student is allowed to rescind his notification in writing and continue the program. If the student subsequently drops, the student's withdrawal date is the original date of notification of intent to withdraw.

Upon receipt of the official withdrawal information, PARK PLACE PREMIER BARBER SCHOOL, will complete the following:

  1.  Determine the student's last date of attendance as of the last recorded date of academic attendance on the school's attendance record;
  2. Two calculations are performed:
    1. The students ledger card and attendance record are reviewed to determine the      calculation of Return of Title IV, HEA funds the student has earned, and if any, the amount of Title IV funds for which the school is responsible. Returns made to the Federal Funds Account are calculated using the Department's Return of Title IV, HEA Funds Worksheets, scheduled attendance and are based upon the payment period.
    2. Calculate the school's refund requirement (see school refund calculation):
  3. The student's grade record will be updated to reflect his/her final grade.
  4. PARK PLACE PREMIER BARBER SCHOOL, will return the amount for any unearned portion of the Title IV funds for which the school is responsible within 45 days of the date the official notice was provided.
  5. The  school will provide the student with a letter explaining the Title IV, HEA requirements:
    1. The amount of Title IV assistance the student has earned. This amount is based upon the length of time the student was enrolled in the program based on scheduled attendance and the amount of funds the student received. b.   Any returns that will be made to the Title IV, HEA Federal program on the student's behalf as a result of exiting the program. If a student's scheduled attendance is more  than 60% of the payment period, he/she is considered to have earned 100% of the Federal funds received for the payment period. In this case, no funds need to be returned to the Federal funds.
    2.   Advise the student of the amount of unearned Federal funds and tuition and fees that the student must return, if applicable.
  6. Supply the student with ledger card record noting outstanding balance due to the school and the available methods of payment. A copy of the completed worksheet, check, letter and final ledger card will be kept in the student's file.

In the event a student decides to rescind his or her official notification to withdraw, the student must provide a signed and dated written statement that he/she is continuing his or her program of study, and intends to complete the payment period. Title IV, HEA assistance will continue as originally planned. If the student subsequently fails to attend or ceases attendance without completing the payment period, the student's withdrawal date is the original date of notification of intent to withdraw.

Unofficial Withdrawal from School
In the event that the school unofficially withdraws a student from school, the School Administrator and/or Admissions representative  must complete the Withdrawal form using the last date of attendance as the drop date.

Any student that does not provide official notification of his or her intent to withdraw and is absent for more than 14 consecutive calendar days, fails to maintain satisfactory academic progress, or fails to comply with the school's attendance and will be subject to termination and considered to have unofficially withdrawn.

Within one week of the student's last date of academic attendance, the following procedures will take place:

  1. The admissions office will make three attempts to notify the student regarding his/her enrollment status;
  2. Determine and record the student's last date of attendance as the last recorded date of academic attendance on the attendance record;
  3. The student's withdrawal date is determined as the last day of attendance date the day after 14 consecutive calendar days of absence;
  4. Notify the student in writing of their failure to contact the school and attendance status resulting in the current termination of enrollment;
  5. PARK PLACE PREMIER BARBER SCHOOL, calculates the amount of Federal funds the student has earned, and, if any, the amount of Federal funds for which the school is responsible.
  6. Calculate the school's refund requirement (see school refund calculation);
  7. PARK PLACE PREMIER BARBER SCHOOL,  Financial Aid Administrator will return to the  Federal fund programs any unearned portion of Title IV funds for which the school is responsible within 45 days of the date the withdrawal determination was made and note return on the student's ledger card.
  8. If applicable, PARK PLACE PREMIER BARBER SCHOOL, will provide the student with a refund letter explaining Title IV requirements:
    1. The amount of Title IV aid the student has earned based upon the length of time the student was enrolled and scheduled to attend in the program and the amount of  aid the student received.
    2. Advise the student in writing of the amount of unearned Title IV aid and tuition and fees that he/she must return, if applicable.
    3. Supply the student with a final student ledger card showing outstanding balance     due the school and the available methods of payment.
  9. A copy of the completed worksheet, check, letter, and final ledger card will be kept
    in the student's file.

Post-Withdrawal Disbursement

If you did not receive all of the funds that you earned, you may be due a post-withdrawal disbursement. If your post-withdrawal disbursement includes loan funds, your school must get your permission before it can disburse them. You may choose to decline some or all of the loan funds so that you don't incur additional debt. Your school may automatically use all or a portion of your post-withdrawal disbursement of grant funds for tuition, fees, and room and board charges (as contracted with the school).

The school needs your permission to use the post-withdrawal grant disbursement for all other school charges. If you do not give your permission (some schools ask for this when you enroll), you will be offered the funds. However, it may be in your best interest to allow the school to keep the funds to reduce your debt at the school.

Disbursement Restrictions – 30 Day, First time, First Year Undergraduate Students

There are some Title IV, HEA funds that you were scheduled to receive that cannot be disbursed to you 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 30 days of your program before you withdraw, you will not receive any Direct Loan funds that you would have received had you remained enrolled past the 30th day.

Student and Institution Responsibilities

If you receive (or your school or parent receive on your behalf) excess Title IV, HEA program funds that must be returned, your school 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, HEA program funds.
Institution Responsibilities in regards to return of Title IV, HEA funds

PARK PLACE PREMIER BARBER SCHOOL 's responsibilities in regards to Title IV, HEA funds follow:

  • Providing students information with information in this policy;
  • Identifying students who are affected by this policy and completing the return of Title IV, HEA funds calculation for those students;
  • Returning any Title IV, HEA funds due to the correct Title IV, HEA programs.

The institution is not always required to return all of the excess funds; there are situations once the R2T4 calculations have been completed in which the student must return the unearned aid.

Student Responsibilities

If your school 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 Direct 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 maximum amount of a grant overpayment that you must repay is half of the grant funds you received or were scheduled to receive. You do not have to repay a grant overpayment if the original amount of the overpayment is $50 or less. You must make arrangements with your school or the Department of Education to return the unearned grant funds

Student Responsibilities in regards to return of Title IV, HEA funds

  • Returning to the Title IV, HEA programs any funds that were dispersed to the student in which the student was determined to be ineligible for via the R2T4 calculation.
  • Any notification of withdraw should be in writing and addressed to the appropriate institutional official.
  • A student may rescind his or her notification of intent to withdraw. Submissions of intent to rescind a withdraw notice must be filed in writing.
  • Either these notifications, to withdraw or rescind to withdraw must be made to the official records/registration personal at your school.

Refund vs. Return to Title IV, HEA Program Funds

The requirements for Title IV, HEA program funds when you withdraw are separate from any refund policy that your school may have. Therefore, you may still owe funds to the school to cover unpaid institutional charges. Your school may also charge you for any Title IV, HEA program funds that the school was required to return. If you don't already know your school's refund policy, you should ask your school for a copy. Your school can also provide you with the requirements and procedures for officially withdrawing from school.

Withdrawal Before 60%

The institution must perform a R2T4 to determine the amount of earned aid through the 60% point in each payment period or period of enrollment. The institution will use the Department of Education's prorate schedule to determine the amount of the R2T4 funds the student has earned at the time of withdraw.

Withdrawal After 60%

After the 60% point in the payment period or period of enrollment, a student has earned 100% of the Title IV, HEA funds he or she was scheduled to receive during this period. The institution must still perform a R2T4 to determine the amount of aid that the student has earned.

PARK PLACE PREMIER BARBER SCHOOL  measures progress in Clock Hours, and uses the payment period for the period of calculation.

The Calculation Formula:

Determine the amount of Title IV, HEA aid that was disbursed plus Title IV, HEA aid that could have been disbursed.

Calculate the percentage of Title IV, HEA aid earned:

  1. Divide the number of clock hours scheduled to be completed in the payment period as of the last date of attendance in the payment period by the total clock hours in the payment period.

    HOURS SCHEDULED TO COMPLETE
    TOTAL HOURS IN PERIOD = % EARNED
  2. If this percentage is greater than 60%, the student earns 100%.
  3. If this percent is less than or equal to 60%, proceeds with calculation.

Percentage earned from (multiplied by) Total aid disbursed, or could have been disbursed = AMOUNT STUDENT EARNED.

Subtract the Title IV aid earned from the total disbursed = AMOUNT TO BE RETURNED.

100% minus percent earned = UNEARNED PERCENT

Unearned percent (multiplied by) total institutional charges for the period = AMOUNT DUE FROM THE SCHOOL.

If the percent of Title IV aid disbursed is greater than the percent unearned (multiplied by)  institutional charges for the period, the amount disbursed will be used in place of the percent unearned.
If the percent unearned (multiplied by) institutional charges for the period are less than the amount due from the school, the student must return or repay one-half of the remaining unearned Federal Pell Grant.
Student is not required to return the overpayment if this amount is equal to or less than 50% of the total grant assistance that was disbursed /or could have been disbursed. The student is also not required to return an overpayment if the amount is $50 or less.

PARK PLACE PREMIER BARBER SCHOOL  will issue a grant overpayment notice to student within 30 days from the date the school's determination that student withdrew, giving student 45 days to either:

  1. Repay the overpayment in full to PARK PLACE PREMIER BARBER SCHOOL  or
  2. Sign a repayment agreement with the U.S.  Department of Education.

Order of Return

PARK PLACE PREMIER BARBER SCHOOL  is authorized to return any excess funds after applying them to current outstanding Cost of Attendance (COA) charges. A copy of the Institutional R2T4 work sheet performed on your behalf is available through the office upon student request.

In accordance with Federal regulations, when Title IV, HEA financial aid is involved, the calculated amount of the R2T4 Funds" is allocated in the following order:

  • Unsubsidized Direct Stafford loans (other than PLUS loans)
  • Subsidized Direct Stafford loans
  • Parent Plus loans
  • Direct PLUS loans
  • Federal Pell Grants for which a Return is required
  • Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grant for which a Return is required
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant
  • Other Title IV assistance
  • State Tuition Assistance Grants  (if applicable)
  • Private and institutional aid
  • The Student

Earned AID:

Title IV, HEA aid is earned in a prorated manner on a per diem basis (calendar days or clock hours) up to the 60% point in the payment period. Title IV, HEA aid is viewed as 100% earned after that point in time. A copy of the worksheet used for this calculation can be requested from the financial aid administrator.

Time frame for returning an unclaimed Title IV, HEA credit balance

If a school attempts to disburse the credit balance by check and the check is not cashed, the school must return the funds no later than 240 days after the date the school issued the check.

If a check is returned to a school or an EFT is rejected, the school may make additional attempts to disburse the funds, provided that those attempts are made not later than 45 days after the funds were returned or rejected. When a check is returned or EFT is rejected and the school does not make another attempt to disburse the funds, the funds must be returned before the end of the initial 45-day period.

The school must cease all attempts to disburse the funds and return them no later than 240 days after the date it issued the first check.

Overpayment of Title IV, HEA Funds

Any amount of unearned grant funds that you must return is called overpayment. The amount of grant overpayment that you must repay is half of the grant funds you received or were scheduled to receive. You must make arrangement with PARK PLACE PREMIER BARBER SCHOOL  or Department of Education to return the amount of unearned grant funds.

Refund vs. Return to Title IV, HEA Funds

The requirements for the Title IV, HEA program funds when you withdraw are separate from any refund policy that PARK PLACE PREMIER BARBER SCHOOL  may have to return to you due to a cash credit balance. Therefore, you may still owe funds to the school to cover unpaid institutional charges. PARK PLACE PREMIER BARBER SCHOOL  may also charge you for any Title IV, HEA program funds that they were required to return on your behalf.

If you do not already know what PARK PLACE PREMIER BARBER SCHOOL  refund policy is, you may ask  your School's Financial Aid Administrator for a copy.

Return to Title IV, HEA questions?

If you have questions about your Title IV program funds, you can call the Federal Student Aid Information Center at 1-800-4-FEDAID (1-800-433-3243). TTY users may call 1-800-730-8913. Information is also available on Student Aid on the Web at www.studentaid.ed.gov.

Academic Program (HEA 13) Transfer of Credit Policies and Articulation Agreements Park Place Premier Barber School does not participate in Articulation Agreements

Transfer Students – Park Place Premier Barber School will not accept the hours of any student desirous of transferring from a Non-Accredited School.   Therefore, if a student wishes to transfer from a Non-Accredited School, they will be required to complete the entire program (based on the program length).  Students must be aware that all hours attempted whether you had Title IV or paid cash counts toward the 150% Quantitative requirements mentioned above.

However, if a student transfers from a verified Accredited School,  the student may receive credit hours upon reviews of transcripts or other supporting documentation (by the College Instructor or designee), to include the number of hours posted by the state (from which a student is transferring) regulatory body.  Transfer hours from another institution that are accepted toward the student's educational program are counted as both attempted and completed hours for the purpose of determining when the allowable maximum time frame has been exhausted.  SAP evaluation periods are based on actual contracted hours at the institution. 
Please note, the results of the review are based on the discretion of Park Place Premier Barber School and do not constitute a guarantee that full credit will be given. A maximum of 200 clock hours will be accepted. If at the discretion of the Administrator, credit hours for transfer students will be given; the student will be notified and advised of the payment pro-ration going forward.

PLEASE NOTE: Park Place is not obligated to accept a full credit transfer for students transferring from any institution.  Nor, is any other school obligated to accept hours obtained from Park Place in the event of a transfer.  As a result, we strongly encourage you to exercise extreme caution when deciding to transfer to a different school, because of the potential time commitment and financial impacts of such a decision.

Notice of Federal Student Financial Aid Penalties for Drug Law Violations
A Federal or state drug conviction can disqualify a student for FSA funds. The student self- certifies in applying for aid that he/she is eligible for by using the FAFSA. PARK PLACE PREMIER BARBER SCHOOL is not required to confirm this unless there is evidence of conflicting information.

The chart below illustrates the period of ineligibility for FSA funds, depending on whether the conviction was for sale or possession and whether the student had previous offenses.

(A conviction for the sale of drugs includes conviction for conspiring to sell drugs)

 

Possession of illegal drugs

Sale of illegal drug

1st Offense

1 year from date of conviction

2 years from date of conviction

2nd Offense

2 years from date of conviction

Indefinite period

3+ Offense

Indefinite period

 

If a student was convicted of both possessing and selling illegal drugs, and the periods of ineligibility are different the student will be ineligible for the longer period

A student regains eligibility the day after the period of ineligible ends or when he/she successfully completes a qualified drug rehabilitation program. Further drug conviction will make him/her ineligible again.
When a student regains eligibility during the award year, the institute may award Pell and/or Loan for the current payment period.

A qualified drug rehabilitation program must include at least two unannounced drug tests and must satisfy at least one of the following requirements:

Be qualified to receive funds directly or indirectly from a federal, state or local government program.
Be qualified to receive payment directly or indirectly from a federally or state-licensed insurance company.
Be administered or recognized by federal, state or local government agency or court.
Be administered or recognized by a federally or state-licensed hospital, health clinic or
medical doctor.

Upon receipt of all required documents and in good order, and when all admissions criteria and requirements are met, the prospective student is eligible to enroll.

Student Loan Information Published by Department of Education

National Student Load Data System

After submitting the FAFSA, the Department of Education (DE) attempts to match the information provided with what is on the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS). This is to ensure that the student is not in default on any previously borrowed student loans, is not close to or over aggregate Federal Stafford Loan limits, and a refund on a grant payment received is not due. DE uses the student's name, social security number, and date of birth to determine the above and list financial aid history on the Student Aid Report (SAR) and ISIR. If the information provided on the FAFSA does not match what is on NSLDS, the record will be flagged.

For files that are flagged, the FA office personnel must determine why the data mismatch is occurring, try to resolve it if possible, and then locate the student's financial aid history on NSLDS to ensure there are no other issues.

When a partial match on the information with NSLDS is reported on the SAR/ISIR, FA office personnel must resolve the issue before proceeding. If there was a mistake made entering the student's data on the FAFSA, a correction should be made. Students may be asked to provide documents to help resolve the issue. This may be but is not limited to paperwork showing a legal name change, a copy of the social security card, or a birth certificate, passport, naturalization papers, etc. FA personnel will contact the student in writing should any supplementary documentation be needed.
In some instances, FAFSA records are flagged for no data, no relevant history or a processing error where financial aid history was not transferred to the SAR/ISIR. FA office should be able to resolve the issue without further action from the student.

In addition to researching ISIRs that are flagged, FA personnel look at NSLDS history for each student who is awarded federal financial aid.

As ISIRs are received, NSLDS history for each student is printed. If NSLDS indicates that a student has attended other schools, FA personnel check with Admissions to see if transcripts from any/all previous schools attended have been received. If transcripts are missing, FA personnel notify Admissions office personnel and missing transcripts are requested. During the awarding process FA personnel will look in and check NSLDS for any potential problems that may need resolved before student is awarded aid.

Entrance Counseling for Student Loan Borrowers
The Department of Education requires that any student receiving a Federal Stafford Loan be notified concerning their loans. Students must complete entrance counseling and an electronic loan promissory note prior to the loan being disbursed. Students are counseled regarding loan indebtedness and to make sure the student understands the amount borrowed and their  rights and responsibilities regarding repayment of the loan.

Exit Counseling for Student Loan Borrowers
The student is required to complete Exit Counseling before they graduate, or if they decide to withdraw from the program, a tool to ensure the student understands their rights and responsibilities as a student loan borrower and provides useful tips and information to help manage their loans by visiting the website: www.studentloans.gov

Federal student loan records of students and parents will be submitted to the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS), and will be accessible by guaranty agencies, lenders, and institutions determined to be authorized users of the data system. Students and parents may view their loan record history by visiting www.nslds.ed.gov.
