If a student receives federal financial aid awards based upon full-time status and then drops below full-time status, a portion of the federal financial aid may need to be returned to the federal government. The student would be responsible for the repayment of the returned funds. The same is true for any student who has received federal financial aid awards based upon the enrollment status at which they were awarded. Please check with the Financial Aid office, 402-872-2228 or email@example.com if you have questions regarding how dropping a class or classes will affect your financial aid awards.
Military Tuition Assistance - Return of Unearned Funds
To comply with the Department of Defense policy, Peru State College will calculate any unearned military tuition assistance (TA) funds on a proportional basis through the 60% portion of the attendance period for which the funds were provided. TA funds are considered unearned at the point the service member student stops attending in the period.
The recalculation of the TA funds will be based on the following formula:
number of days completed = percent earned
total days of the course
(start to end date)
The institution may be required to return a portion or all of the TA funds awarded to the service member student who did not complete at least 60% of each course, which may result in creating a balance due on the student account.
Students who withdraw completely from college will receive prorated credit according to the following scheduled percentages:
Prorated Tuition Schedule
Regular 16 Week Semester
|Withdrawal Date||Percentage Refunded|
|2nd - 8th Week||50%|
|After 8th Week||0%|
Eight Week Session
|Withdrawal Date||Percentage Refunded|
|2nd - 4th Week||50%|
|After 4th Week||0%|
Summer workshops with shortened class lengths will not follow this same pro-rated schedule.
Warning - withdrawing from college may also affect your financial aid awards. If you have already received a refund from excess financial aid, you may need to repay a portion of the financial aid according to the federal prorating guidelines for a withdrawal student.
Withdrawal request forms are available from:
Ms. Jamie Eberly
Licensed Student Counselor
Peru State College CATS, Room 204
P.O. Box 10, Peru, NE 68421-0010
An email communication will be sent as soon as refund checks are available. On-campus
enrolled students may pick up refund checks at the Business Office. Students whose
enrollment is entirely internet based will receive their refund check by mail. Students
are encouraged to participate in direct deposit.
Direct deposit of student refunds is available for student participation. The direct deposit process will expedite the receipt of funds, which will be deposited into bank accounts within 3 days of refund processing, and eliminates the possibility of lost checks through mailing or waiting in line at the Business Office.
To participate in direct deposit, log into myPSC and navigate to the Student Account tab and click the “My Bank Info” link. Students will receive email notification as soon as the banking information has been entered, edited, or deleted.
As an eligible institution, Peru State College is required by the Internal Revenue
Service to file an annual Tuition Statement Form 1098-T for each student for whom
a reportable transaction is made (i.e. tuition, fees, scholarships or grants received). This
information is provided to assist taxpayers in determining eligibility for claiming
Education Tax Credits enacted by the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997. The 1098-T information
should be combined with a student’s own payment(s) and financial aid records in determining
any impact on their tax return.
The school processes the 1098-T information in January of each year. The 1098-T form may be printed by accessing online through myPSC self-service, and granting consent to receive the information electronically. A copy of the 1098-T form will be mailed no later than January 31st to the student's permanent address if the student has not granted consent to receive the information electronically. The school will send an email communication to students as soon as the 1098-T information is available online.
How to Access the 1098-T Form
Log into myPSC, navigate to the Student Accounts tab, and click the Tax Information (1098T) link. Select
the appropriate Tax Year to view and print the 1098T form.
Questions Relating to 1098-T Reporting
Students may contact the Business Office at 402-872-2211 or firstname.lastname@example.org for questions related to their 1098-T information. However, be advised that Peru
State College personnel cannot give tax advice. Please contact a tax advisor/preparer
with specific tax questions. Students may also consult with IRS publications posted
