This philosophy acknowledges the existence of both rights and responsibilities, which is inherent to an individual not only as a student at Emily Griffith Technical College but also as a person living in this country.

- Each student shall have the right to participate in all areas and activities of the College, free from any form of discrimination, including harassment, on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, sex, disability, age, sexual orientation, or veteran status in accordance with applicable federal and state laws.
- A student has the right to personal privacy except as otherwise provided by law, and this will be observed by students and College authorities alike.
- Each student subject to disciplinary action arising from violations of College or Program Student Code of Conduct shall be assured a fundamentally fair process.
- A student has the responsibility to respect the rights and property of others, including other students, the faculty and College officials.
- A student has the responsibility to be fully acquainted with the published College Student Rules and to comply with them, as well as federal, state, and local laws.
- A student has the responsibility to recognize that student actions reflect upon the individuals involved and upon the entire College community.

Emily Griffith Technical College Withdrawals and Return of Title IV Funds Policy
Title IV funds are awarded to a student under the assumption that the student will attend school for the entire period for which the assistance is awarded. When a student withdraws, the student may no longer be eligible for the full amount of Title IV funds that the student was originally scheduled to receive. If a recipient of Title IV funds withdraws from Emily Griffith Technical College (EGTC) after beginning attendance, the amount of Title IV funds assistance earned by the student must be determined. If the amount disbursed to the student is greater than the amount the student earned, the unearned funds must be returned. If the amount disbursed to the student is less than the amount the earned, and for which the student is otherwise eligible, he or she is eligible to receive a post-withdrawal disbursement of the earned aid that was not received.
EGTC is required to determine the earned and unearned portions of Title IV aid as of the date the student ceased attendance based on the amount of time the student spent in attendance or, in the case of a clock-hour program, was scheduled to be in attendance. Up through the 60% point in each payment period of period of enrollment, a pro rata schedule is used to determine the amount of Title IV funds the student has earned at the time of withdrawal. After the 60% point in the payment period or period of enrollment, a student has earned 100% of the Title IV funds he or she was scheduled to receive during the period. Upon the completion of Title IV refund (R2T4) a school is required to determine if a post-withdrawal disbursement is necessary for funds earned and not disbursed to students. EGTC may automatically use all or a portion of the post-withdrawal disbursement for tuition and fees charges.
There are several factors used to determine the Return of Title IV funds calculations: Official or unofficial withdrawal date, payment period or period of enrollment, amount of aid that was disbursed, amount of aid that could have been disbursed, percent of Title IV aid earned, post-withdrawal disbursement, institutional charges, amount of Title IV aid to be returned (if applicable) and time limits and reporting requirements.
The requirements for Title IV program funds when you withdraw are separate from any refund policy that your school may have. Therefore, you may still owe funds to the school to cover unpaid institutional charges. Your school may also charge you for any Title IV program funds that the school was required to return. If you don’t already know what your school’s refund policy is, you can ask your school for a copy. Your school can provide you with the requirements and procedures for officially withdrawing from school.
For further guidance on Withdrawals and the Return of Title IV Funds policies and procedures please see the reference material found in Chapter 1, Volume 5 of the Federal Student Aid Handbook under Withdrawals. You may access a copy in the Financial Aid Office. You can also call the Federal Student Aid Information Center at 1-800-4-FEDAID (1-800-433-3243). TTY users may call 1-800-730-8913.
