Refund to Agency or Student
Enrollment is defined as the time elapsed between the actual starting date from which the student formally terminates enrollment. Termination shall occur no later than thirty days after the student’s last day of physical attendance in the school, or the date on which the withdrawal letter is received. Any monies due the applicant or the student shall be refunded within 30 days of formal cancellation by the student as defined in item 2 or 3 or formal termination by the school, which shall occur no more than 30 days from the last date of physical attendance, or in case of a leave of absence, the documented date of return.
The cost of extra items to the student such as instructional supplies or equipment, service charges, student activity fees, deposit, rentals, and other charges are itemized separately in the student’s Enrollment Agreement, on the student’s account ledger, or in other data furnished to the student before enrollment.
In cases of illness or disabling accident, death in the immediate family, or other circumstances beyond the control of the student, the school makes a settlement, which is reasonable and fair, to both.
A payment plan is available through the school. See the financial aid director for details.
If a credit balance is created by the disbursement of Title IV funds or any other funds and a refund is due to the student, it will be made within fourteen (14) days of the date it was created as required by the Department of Education if there is NO Credit Balance Authorization signed by student/parent or if the authorization has been rescinded. If a Credit Balance Authorization is signed by the student/parent and in place, the credit balance will be issued to the student within fourteen (14) days of the end of the loan period or the last payment period in the award year.
The Calculation Formula
Determine the amount of Title IV aid that was disbursed plus Title IV aid that could have been disbursed.
Calculate the percentage of Title IV aid earned:
a) 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
b) If this percentage is greater than 60%, the student earns 100%
c) If this percent is less than or equal to 60%, proceed with calculation
Percentage earned from (times) 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 (times) institutional charges for the period, the amount disbursed be used in place of the percent unearned.
If the percent unearned (times) institutional charges for the period is 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.

Any such withdrawal must be made in writing using Buckner Barber School request to withdrawal or drop form. If the student is under legal age, the parent or guardian must submit the withdrawal notice in the office. A student is considered withdrawn after 10 consecutive school days of unexcused absence from the school (14 calendar days).

A student will be charged a re-enrollment fee of $150.00 to be paid to Buckner Barber School.
