Employers benefit from having more educated employees and many offer tuition reimbursement programs. If you’re currently working and plan to keep working while you go to school, ask your employer if there are any programs available to help you pay tuition costs.

Return of federal funding
According to federal regulations, a federal refund calculation must be performed if a student who is receiving financial aid withdraws completely from all classes after the start of the semester.
The length of enrollment is equal to the number of calendar days in the periods in which the student was registered, excluding breaks of five days or more. All days, including weekends and holidays, are counted.
The withdrawal date is the date the student begins the official withdrawal process or otherwise officially notifies the institution of his/her intent to withdraw (electronically, in writing, in person or by telephone, whichever is earlier). For students who withdraw without notification, the school will use the last date of academic attendance as the withdrawal date. Failure to notify theFinancial Aid Office of withdrawal may result in additional tuition liability.
