6. An international student who has not yet enrolled in classes will be eligible for a 100% refund of the $1,200 deposit upon his/her release of the I-20 which the College provided to the student. If the student is unable to obtain the original I-20 document, a signed statement by the student declaring his/her intent not to enroll at Moberly Area Community College will be required. Upon receipt of this letter (declaration of intent) the College will provide a 100% refund of the student’s deposit. This declaration of intent will be forwarded to Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) in order to change his/her visa status. An international student who has enrolled in classes is subject to the refund policy as stated in the catalog. Additionally, these students should be approved by the Dean of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management prior to dropping any or all courses registered for that semester.
7. If a student receives financial aid from federal Title IV programs (Federal Pell, Federal SEOG, Federal Direct Loans) and withdraws from all classes prior to completing 60% of the enrollment period, he or she may be required to return federal Title IV funds. Under the Reauthorization of the Higher Education Amendments of 1998, the amount of a student’s federal aid is adjusted, based on the length of time that a student is enrolled. Students will be required to repay aid they have received that exceeds the adjusted federal aid amount.
8. In the event of extreme extenuating circum stances and with proper written documentation, a partial or total refund may be granted to a student . Such refund requests will be reviewed by the President of the College or designee and a determination made on a case-by-case basis.
