Example of a Title IV return of funds calculation for a Title IV recipient who is considered to have withdrawn: (Self-Paced Degree Program)

$4,420 = Institutional Charges

$4,420 = Title IV Loans
$0 = Title IV Grants
$4,420 = Total Title IV aid

Student withdrew after completing 1 out of 14 assignments.

Percent Earned 1/14 = 7.1%

Percent Unearned 100% - 7.1% = 92.9%

Amount of Title IV aid earned $4,420 x 7.1% = $313.82

Unearned Title IV due to the school $4,420 x 92.9% = $4,106.18
