CALCULATION OF REPAYMENT AMOUNT: The school's return of un-earned aid is calculated according to policies set forth by the United States Department of Education and the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE). MTI Business College of Stockton applies these standards to all students regardless of whether or not they are federal financial aid recipients and full-time or part-time students.

The United States Department of Education Return of Title IV funds calculation takes into consideration the funds that were disbursed on behalf of the student during the first, and/or second term of their program. The days attended in a payment period are divided by the total days of the period. For purposes of the return of funds formula “days” include weekends and holidays. Only school scheduled breaks of five days or more are excluded. This calculation determines the percentage of Title IV or non-Title IV funds to be returned for students that completed 60 percent or less of a payment period.

APPLICATION OF REPAYMENT PROCEEDS: If any portion of the tuition was paid from the proceeds of a student loan, the repayment shall be sent to the lender(s) or, if appropriate, to the state or federal agency(ies) that guaranteed or reinsured the loan, in order of priority; Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans, Federal Direct Subsidized Loans, Federal Direct PLUS Loans for Underaged Students, and Pell Grants. Any amount of the repayment in excess of the unpaid balance of the loan shall be first used to repay any student financial aid programs from which the student received any benefits, in proportion to the amount of the benefits received, and any remaining amount shall be paid to the student or to a third-party payer if that organization has paid the Buyer/Student's tuition and fees. Any overpayment of monies disbursed for indirect educational expenses will be based on the percentage of time elapsed over the total time in the award period. The Buyer/Student will be responsible for the repayment of any such overpayment. Repayments made by the Buyer/Student will be made to the appropriate Financial Aid fund account and/or student loan lender in proportion to the amount of the benefits received by the Buyer/Student.

NOTICE OF REPAYMENT TO BUYER/STUDENT: The Seller/School shall notify the Buyer/Student in writing of the date on which the repayment was made, the amount of the repayment, the method of calculating the repayment, and the name and address of the entity to which the repayment was sent within ten days of such repayment. Posting this notice in the US Postal Service shall be deemed constructive notice for this purpose.
