Academic Procedures—Adjustment of Financial Aid
Financial aid is based upon the total cost of attendance at the University of Rochester. Adjustments to the cost of attendance due to a change of enrollment status (withdrawal or inactive) could potentially result in a reduction of previously awarded financial aid. The Financial Aid Office will determine the reduction in aid after the date of the change in status has been verified by the dean. Federal regulations require that this calculation be completed within 45 days of notification of the change of status.
Inactive students studying at another institution are not eligible for University funding. A Consortium/Contractual Agreement may allow students to receive a Federal Direct Loan, Federal Pell Grant, and, if attending another New York school, TAP funding. Students must have already completed their application for financial aid and a Consortium/Contractual Agreement before requesting their federal and state funding to be applied to another school’s charges.
