Financial aid is not just for undergraduate students. Working with our Student Enrollment and Financial Services Office (SEFS) to determine the best path for you and for your future can make graduate school a reality. We understand that every student has a unique story and set of circumstances. Financing your education is a huge decision and we are here to help.

Standards of Academic Progress for Financial Aid

Students receiving financial aid funded by the State government or by the Federal government (Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, TEACH, Federal Work Study, Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Stafford Loan, and Federal PLUS Loan), as well as all John Carroll University funding, must conform to the University’s Standards of Academic Progress. These guidelines encourage students to successfully complete courses for which aid is received.

These financial aid standards of academic progress are separate from, and in addition to, academic standards required by the University for continued enrollment. In order to receive financial aid at John Carroll University, a student must be enrolled, be making satisfactory academic progress toward graduation, and remain in good academic standing. All students receiving financial aid will be reviewed at the end of each semester.

Withdrawals and Refunds

Withdrawal from a course or from the University on a temporary or permanent basis involves a procedure as formal as that of registration. Students are responsible for following the appropriate procedures, available through the student’s respective College, and on the website.

Notice to the instructor or continued absence from class does not constitute a withdrawal, and the only result from such action will be the assignment of the grade “WF.” To safeguard the academic record, therefore, as well as to secure any refund, the student must carry out proper withdrawal procedures personally in the Student Service Center.

The following percentages of the charge for tuition will be refunded if obligations have been paid in full, or credited if there is a balance due. The schedule below is for the fall and spring semesters only; the refund schedule for the summer sessions is published annually in the Schedule of Summer Classes.

Fall and Spring Semester:

Within the first week of class: 100%
Within the second week of class: 67%
Within the third week of class: 33%
After the third week of class: 0%

Summer Semester:

On or before the second class meeting day: 100%
On the third through fifth class meeting day: 50%

After the fifth class meeting day: 0%
