If a student who is receiving any form of financial aid withdraws and is entitled to a refund, a portion of that refund may be returned. If the student’s award package included any federal funds other than Federal Work-Study and the withdrawal occurs in the first 60% of the semester, federal regulations require that a portion of the student’s federal aid be returned to the aid programs. For more information, please review the Refund Policy in the HMS Financial Aid Guidebook, available in the Publications section of the HMS Financial Aid Office website: http://www.hms.harvard.edu/finaid.
