If that last day of attendance reflects completing a module, then the student is not considered a withdrawal. 11 Rounding Dollars

Degree Requirements If a student is enrolled in courses that do not count toward his degree, certificate, or other recognized credential, they cannot be used to determine enrollment status unless they are eligible remedial courses. This means you cannot award the student aid for classes that do not count toward his degree, certificate, or other recognized credential. Federal Student Aid Handbook, page 1-18 18 Majors and Minors There is flexibility for schools to decide what counts
toward each individual students degree, certificate, or other recognized credential. This allows for the provision of Title IV aid for multiple majors and for academic minors and concentrations. 19 Prerequisites If a student is taking a course that must be taken in order to qualify to enroll in a course that is required for the program of study, the student may receive Title IV aid for the prerequisite course under the remedial coursework provisions.
20 Graduate Students For graduate programs, full-time enrollment status may be defined differently in summer than during the academic year. Half-time status must still reflect at least half of the full-time status definition. 21 Audits and Program Reviews NSLDS enrollment reporting issues are frequently among the top audit and program review findings Reporting inaccuracies
