How does dropping a class or withdrawing from the Seminary affect my financial aid?
If you drop a class in the middle of the quarter, all of your CTSFW tuition grant money for that class will be removed from your account and you will be responsible for any remaining tuition costs (see the Academic Calendar or Academic Catalog for tuition refund rate schedule). If you drop classes with the result that you fall below half-time status (half time is 6 credits for M.Div. and A.R.; 4.5 credits for M.A. and M.A. in Deaconess Studies-Residential; 3 credits for S.T.M., Ph.D., D.Min. and M.A. in Deaconess Studies-Distance Learning) you will lose all your CTSFW tuition grant money and any Federal Student Loans will be returned for that quarter. If you withdraw from the Seminary during the middle of the quarter, both your CTSFW grant money and Federal Student Loans are affected.
