Student Notification

Once the school has made any needed adjustments to a student’s Title IV funding, the student will receive notification.

Students who have had their Title IV funds recalculated due to never beginning attendance will receive notification through their PCC email address and their MyPima financial aid tab.
Students who have withdrawn from the institution will be sent a letter to their permanent address on file. This letter will outline the amount that needs to be repaid to the institution or to the Department of Education. 
Institutional charges must be paid directly to Pima Community College.

  • The student is responsible for returning any funds unearned for institutional charges.

PCC's tuition and fees refund policy is separate from the federal regulations. Whether or not a student can receive a refund of tuition and fees has no bearing on the amount an aid recipient must repay to the federal aid programs for failure to complete the number of courses which they were paid to attend. Unpaid balances due to Pima Community College that result from amounts returned to Title IV programs and other sources of aid will be charged back to the student. The student is also responsible for uncollected tuition to Pima Community College.

Grant overpayments must be paid directly to the U.S. Department of Education

  • The student is responsible for returning an overpayment of any grant funds of more than $50.00.
  • All overpayments are immediately reported to the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS), and turned over to the U.S. Department of Education for collection.

Until overpayments are repaid or satisfactory repayment arrangements have been made at, students will be ineligible for financial aid at any institution.
