Excess funds (money after tuition and fees are paid) are released to students after each quarter's add/drop period and after all of your instructors have certified your attendance. Excess funds will be mailed to the most current address the TVCC Business office has on file for you. First-year, first-time federal student loan borrowers will be required to wait 30 days before receiving their first student loan disbursement.
Financial aid eligibility requires students to maintain good academic standing. You can lose your aid - or even be required to give it back! If a student withdraws, stops attending, or receives all F grades, they may be required to repay a portion of the financial aid received. Federal regulations require a college to perform an Return to Title IV (R2T4) calculation to determine the amount of any unearned aid the student received which needs to be returned to the federal programs. Students will need to reimburse the college for any amount returned. Students will not be able to receive additional financial aid through TVCC for a subsequent term until this amount is paid in full. If a student is enrolled in courses for any term and required to repay a portion of their financial aid following the R2T4 calculation, that student will be held responsible for paying for 100 percent of any and all charges on their student account including, but not limited to, tuition, fees, and bookstore charges.
