Title IV funds are federal student aid funds, which are administered by the U.S. Department of Education. The U.S. Department of Education regulations only allow schools to use your federal student aid to pay for allowable charges unless you have granted permission to apply these funds to other educationally related institutional charges. 

Title IV funds include:

  • Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized Loans

  • Direct PLUS Loans (Parent or Graduate)

  • Federal Pell Grants

  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOGs)

  • Federal Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grant

Federal Title IV funds do not include scholarships from the University or other private organizations.

Allowable charges include:

  • Tuition

  • Mandatory fees including diploma and technology fees

Other educationally related charges include courses taken not applicable to your degree and/or certificate (with student authorization).

Non-Allowable charges include but are not limited to:

  • Application fees

  • Bad check charges

  • Non-credit courses
