For any course to be eligible for financial aid, students must register for the course prior to the start date of the regular semester, regardless of the start date of the course. Students who are to receive the Federal Pell Grant, FSEOG, North Carolina Community College grant, the Less Than Half Time (LTHT) grant, the Targeted Assistance grant, and/or the Lottery grant must have attended, and have actively participated in classes through the FA census date published each semester on the Montgomery Community College Financial Aid student to-do list in order to receive their awards. Students who fail to attend and actively participate in their classes through this date, or who withdraw from school prior to this date, are not eligible for offered awards. While federal awards are frozen on the published financial aid census date, federal funds are subject to a return calculation if students fail to complete the term after attendance of one day. The refund calculation may result in students having to repay a portion of their awards to the U.S. Dept. of Education. Please refer to the R2T4 section at www.montgomery.edu or in the MCC Financial Aid Handbook for more details on repaying federal funds. Please be advised that students who fail to attend classes as prescribed and who fail to complete an official withdrawal form prior to the first day of classes will be responsible for paying all, or a percentage, of their tuition charges. Please refer to the MCC Student Handbook for complete details of tuition charges and eligible refunds.
