*When a student withdraws completely from the University during a semester, the Office of Student Financial Assistance is required to calculate, using a statutory pro rata schedule, the amount of federal Title IV financial aid the recipient has earned for the semester. This schedule is provided by the U.S. Department of Education. The amount of title IV financial aid earned is based on the length of time the student spent in academic attendance. The Office of the Registrar will inform the Office of Student Financial Assistance of the date the student notified Miami of the intent to withdraw. This date is used to calculate aid eligibility. If you are thinking about withdrawing, please contact the Office of Student Financial Assistance (Oxford) or the Financial Aid Office on your campus for information on how it will affect your financial aid.
