Title IV Authorizations
Your authorizations will remain valid throughout your entire Arkansas Tech career, unless you rescind them. As required by federal regulation, the University will refund to you excess Title IV funds at the end of each financial aid year whether you have provided an authorization to hold a credit balance or not.
Refunds Issued in Error
The university has the right to reclaim refunds issued in error. Should this occur, a stop payment will be placed on the check and the student of record will be notified of the reason. In the event that the check has already been cashed, a written request for return of the funds will be provided to the student. Students will have the opportunity to set up a payment arrangement to repay the college before collection effort is initiated.
