Mitigating circumstances may include, but not limited to: death of an immediate family, illness, or other unusual situations. Students who fail to meet the standards may submit a written appeal outlining the mitigating circumstances to the Financial Aid Review Committee for financial aid reinstatement. The Financial Aid Review Committee includes the school s Assistant Principal Blanca Rochin, Director of Financial Aid Karina Madariaga, the student s Program Director, Financial Aid Bursar Brian Ofner, Vice Principal Cindy Grafton, and student s instructor. A written appeal must be submitted using the Appeal Request Form, which can be obtained in the Financial Aid Office (room H-61). The Financial Aid Review Committee will address all appeals on a case-by-case basis. Students will receive an Appeal Decision Letter, via mail, after a decision has been made. If the appeal is successful, certain conditions for academic progress will be set and monitored. A probationary period will be included in the monitoring process. Academic Probation Policy Full-time students whose satisfactory academic progress (SAP) falls below set standards will be placed on a one-month academic probationary period. Failure to meet the qualitative and quantitative standards during the probation, will result in ineligibility for financial aid and dismissal from school. Financial Aid Calculation Financial Aid is calculated based on the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) versus the Cost of Attendance (COA). The EFC is determined based upon the information provided on the FAFSA. In accordance with federal regulations, the maximum Pell Grant award is $ per academic year.

If Tax Return Transcripts are required, you will be able to access those via by using one of the student computers in the Financial Aid Department. Students will receive a preliminary award letter with an estimated Pell Grant amount. The preliminary award letter is contingent upon verification. If further documents and/or signatures are required, you will receive a follow up appointment for those items. If you are an online students, you will receive a letter in the mail requesting documentation for the Verification process. It is very important that all of the requested documentation be submitted by the deadline date noted on the letter (30 days from date on letter), so as not to delay the application process. Step 3: After the verification process is completed, your file will be complete and Financial Aid will be calculated. Please keep in mind that calculation can only take place if you are determined to be eligible for Financial Aid. Step 4: An official award letter notifying you of your Pell Grant amount will be mailed to you. The official award letter will contain detailed disbursement information. Verification Federal regulations (34 CFR 668, Subpart E) require Title IV institutions to verify the information and data submitted by FAFSA filers. However, in accordance to federal regulations, Downey Adult School is authorized, and will, verify all students. Information and forms requested during Verification generally includes, but is not limited to, the following: signed copy of Income Tax Return, copy of W-2 form(s), proof of citizenship, Social Security card, and signed statement indicating untaxed income and benefits.

5 Disbursements Federal Financial Aid is awarded once per year. Financial Aid generally is disbursed in two equal payments, however, one disbursement may occur based on the length of the Verification process. In the case of two disbursements, the second disbursement will generally occur after the completion of theory and prior to the externship phase of training. Court Reporting students will receive three disbursements throughout the course of their training, with each of those disbursements occurring within three weeks of a new trimester. Please keep in mind, however, that because of the Verification process, a Court Reporting student may receive his/her Financial Aid in two or less disbursements. Financial Aid Review Committee In addition to reviewing appeals resulting from students not meeting SAP standards, the Financial Aid Review Committee will review appeals regarding other issues such as verification. Consumer Information In accordance with Federal regulations (34 CFR (e)) and the Clery Act, Downey Adult School will annually furnish the Campus Safety and Security Report, and all students may access the report located in the Financial Aid Business Office. Withdrawal Process All students wishing to withdraw from school may be responsible for returning unused Title IV funds. An official withdrawal may be submitted to the Program Director using the Application for Official Withdrawal. The last date of attendance will be used to calculate unofficial withdrawals. Unofficial withdrawal occurs when a students fails to attend for ten (10) consecutive school days. Refund Policy: Downey Adult School requires a written request for a refund. The written request must be made by filling out the Refund Request Form (obtainable from the instructor), which also must be accompanied by the original receipt. An estimate of how much would be returned to the student can be calculated by the following: Amount Paid Less Books and supplies if not returned in new condition Less class hours attended Downey Adult School does retain a 10% processing fee Recalculation of Title IV Financial Aid Recalculation is based on the number of days attended, the total Federal Financial Aid, and the total institutional charges. The percentage of unearned aid to be returned is equal to the number of clock hours remaining in the term divided by the number of clock hours in the term. If student officially withdraws after attending 60% of required clock hours, the student will be considered as having earned 100% of Federal Financial Aid awarded for that term. If a student is found eligible for a post-withdrawal disbursement, a letter of notification will be mailed to the student. The student may either accept or decline post-withdrawal disbursement. The student will have 14 days from date of letter to notify the Financial Aid Office of his/her decision. Failure to do so will result in the offer being rescinded. Return of Title IV Financial Aid In some instances, students may be required to return Title IV Financial Aid, regardless if the student officially or unofficially withdrew from school. Downey Adult School will recalculate Title IV funds and notify the student via mail within 30 days of withdrawal date. If funds need to be returned, the student will have 45 days from the date of notice to do so. Failure to return funds will result in notification of overpayment to the Department of Education via the National Student Load Data System (NSLDS).
