Please contact a Vogue College Admissions Representative at (866) 227-3779 if you have any questions regarding admissions criteria!
To receive Title IV, HEA funds, a student must be qualified to study at the postsecondary level. A student qualifies if s/he:
Note: merely possessing a certificate of attendance and/or high-school completion is not sufficient for a student to be eligible for Title IV, HEA funding. Such a certificate may be issued without a student having completed all of the academic graduation requirements, including passing any required examinations. A state must consider a certificate or high-school-completion-equivalency test as equivalent to a high school diploma in that state in order for it to be considered equivalent to a high school diploma for Title IV, HEA aid eligibility purposes.
Note: A student may self-certify on the FAFSA that he/she has received a high school diploma or high school equivalency certificate or that he has completed secondary school through homeschooling as defined by state law. If a student indicates that he has a diploma or high school equivalency certificate, Vogue is not required to ask for a copy (except as noted below), but if Vogue requires a diploma for admission, then we must rely on the copy of the diploma or high school equivalency certificate and not on the student’s certification alone.
When a student incorrectly states their diploma status, for example, stating one year that they had a high school diploma, and in a subsequent year either notifying the institution that the previous submission was a mistake, or simply answering “no” to the question of whether or not they have a high school diploma, then the student is ineligible for all Title IV, HEA aid, and is ineligible for all Tittle IV, HEA aid going forward, and must also return the aid they previously received when ineligible, even if it was for an award year which has been completed.
In addition to meeting the Title IV, HEA Funds Academic Requirements for eligibility, students must also:
In addition, students must meet citizenship requirements as follows:
If a student asserts that he or she is a citizen of the United States on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the Secretary attempts to confirm that assertion under a data match with the Social Security Administration. If the Social Security Administration confirms the student’s citizenship, the Secretary reports that confirmation to the institution and the student.
If the Social Security Administration does not confirm the student’s citizenship assertion under the data match with the Secretary, the student can establish U.S. citizenship by submitting documentary evidence of that status to the institution. Before denying title IV, HEA assistance to a student for failing to establish citizenship, an institution must give a student at least 30 days notice to produce evidence of U.S. citizenship.
If the student falls in one of the categories below, they are generally considered an “eligible noncitizen.”
If the student is in the U.S. and have been granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), an F1 or F2 student visa, a J1 or J2 exchange visitor visa, or a G series visa (pertaining to international organizations), the student must select “No, I am not a citizen or eligible noncitizen.” The student will not be eligible for federal student aid. If the student has a Social Security Number but is not a citizen or an eligible noncitizen, including if the student has been granted DACA, the student should still complete the FAFSA because s/he may be eligible for state or college aid.
Selected programs of study at Vogue College are approved by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for enrollment of those eligible to receive Chapters 31, Chapter 33, and Chapter 35 benefits.
Institutional financing is available to students who choose to make monthly payments towards their tuition balance instead of paying up front. Vogue College does not charge interest on institutional financing payments that are made on time. Institutional financial plans are determined by the financial aid department.
Vogue College offers limited scholarships to qualified applicants. To determine an applicant’s eligibility for a partial scholarship, he/she must complete an Application and provide any other information requested. For more detailed information please see Scholarship Policy. Vogue College has 5 days to process the scholarship application. Federal Title IV aid will be recalculated and the need adjusted for all scholarship recipients.
i. A student is considered to be incarcerated if she/he is serving a criminal sentence in a federal, state, or local penitentiary, prison, jail, reformatory, work farm, or similar correctional institution (whether it is operated by the government or a contractor).
ii. A student is not considered to be incarcerated if she/he is in a halfway house or home detention or is sentenced to serve only weekends. Our attendance policy specifies that all classed and practical studies are done at the school’s physical location; therefore, incarcerated students are not eligible for admissions.

Every year a number of students who are eligible for financial aid are randomly selected for verification by the U.S. Department of Education by the FAFSA Central Processing System (CPS). If a student is selected for federal verification, they will be asked to complete a Verification Worksheet (provided by the Office of Student Financial Planning) and must provide additional information before financial aid can be disbursed to the student account. This documentation may include but is not limited to federal income tax transcript and W-2 forms (student’s, spouse and/or parents/guardians), proof of untaxed income, housing allowances, etc. Students will be notified in writing of all documents required to fulfill this federal requirement and what their verification code (V1 – V6) was so they can complete the required verification requirement. If after review by the Office of Student Financial Planning, there are any changes to the financial aid package the student will be notified in writing. The verification procedures will be conducted as follows:
Dependency Override – Students who do not meet the Federal definition of an independent, but have unusual circumstances, may appeal their dependency status to The Academy’s Financial Aid Office. Dependency Status overrides are done on a case by case basis and a determination from one Financial Aid Administrator at one institution is not binding at another institution.
Successful appeals may result in an increase in the student’s eligibility for aid. The Application and Verification Guide (AVG) has identified four conditions that individually or in combination with one another, do not qualify as “unusual circumstances” or that do not merit a dependency override. These circumstances are as follows:
Students with special circumstances should contact The Academy’s Financial Aid Office. Those students whose appeals are determined eligible will be required to submit three letters detailing the student’s situation. The first letter must be from the student detailing their situation and the other two letters must be from outside sources familiar with the student’s situation (i.e.: Clergy, family friend, counsellor, etc.)
Professional Judgement – Circumstances beyond the student’s control (and/or family) that affect the student’s (and/or family) income during the current academic year could result in a reduced estimated family contribution (EFC). Students with special circumstances should always complete a FAFSA and then contact the Financial Aid office. If a student wishes to appeal the EFC based on special circumstances and is determined eligible to do so, the student should complete a Professional Judgement form and may be requested to supply supporting documentation of said circumstances.
Vogue College complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and is wheelchair accessible. The school will provide reasonable modifications and/or accommodations for students with disabilities depending on the student’s need.
It is the responsibility of a person with disabilities to seek available assistance and make their needs known at the time of enrollment. Information pertaining to an Applicant’s disability is voluntary and confidential. If you are interested in attending Vogue College but are in need of reasonable accommodations, you should schedule an appointment with the Director. At this meeting, nature of the reported disability and its impact on learning will be discussed. The process of receiving reasonable accommodations at Vogue College, and the types of accommodations available will also be discussed.
Please bring copies of current documentation of a disability to this meeting. Documentation must be provided by a medical expert within the last three years and include:
Upon completion of the initial meeting, a formal request for the accommodation must be submitted in writing to the school. The school will respond to the request within 15 days of receipt. During this 15-day time frame, the school will consult with Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation or New Mexico Licensing and Regulation Department in order to ensure the accommodation will be granted during the state board-licensing exam. The initial meeting, formal request, and response from the school must take place prior to the pre-enrollment process.
Note: In order to be eligible for Title IV funding, the student must be able to benefit from the reasonable accommodations and be able to take the state board-licensing exam.
Disclosure Requirement: Made available through appropriate publications, mailings, or electronic media.
Each institution must make available to prospective and enrolled students information regarding how and where to contact individuals designated to assist enrolled or prospective students in obtaining the institutional, financial aid, security policies, graduation and completion rates, and crime statistics information required to be disclosed under HEA Sec. 485(a). This information is posted on Vogue College’s website at https://www.vogue.edu/disclosures/ and can be found in the student catalog. Paper copies are available upon request.

Repayment for Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans
Federal Student Disclosure Requirements Regulations set forth by the U.S. Dept. of Education require the disclosure of financial assistance and institutional information to students under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965. These programs include the Federal Pell Grant Program, the campus-based programs (Federal Perkins Loan, Federal WorkStudy (FWS), and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) programs), the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program, and the Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Program. Under the regulations, Vogue College of Cosmetology will notify enrolled students of the Title IV programs available to them. STUDENT FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE AVAILABLE The following student financial assistance is available at Vogue College of Cosmetology for those who qualify:
Federal Pell Grants Pell Grants are disbursed in two payments per award year. The first disbursement generally occurs during the first week of enrollment, and the second disbursement occurs after the students complete the halfway point of their academic year. This is typically 450 clock hours for the Cosmetology program, 375 for the Esthetics and Instructor programs, and 300 for the Nail Technology program, provided the student is maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress. A full-time Cosmetology student attending 34 hours per week, for example, will need to complete a minimum of 13 weeks and 450 clock hours before receiving payment period 2 funds. A part-time Esthetics student attending 24 hours per week will need to complete a minimum of 16 weeks and 375 hours. Pell awards are prorated based on clock hours and COA.
Need Based Aid (Pell Grant and Stafford Subsidized Loan) Calculation:
COA (Cost of Attendance) – EFC (Expected Family Contribution) = Need Eligibility
Non-Need Based Aid (Unsubsidized Stafford and Parent PLUS Loan) Calculation:
COA – EFA (Expected Financial Assistance/all other aid) = Non-Need Eligibility
COA = Budget – each Student receiving an Award Letter estimating Title IV Eligibility will be assigned a Budget. The COA includes the following items: Tuition & Fees, Room and Board, Transportation, Misc/Personal, Books/Supplies and Other items such as special circumstances or expenses related to disabilities.
Institutional Financing is offered by Vogue but we do not have preferred lender arrangements. A Private Education Loan Application Self-Certification must be completed if the Student seeks an outside loan.
Vogue College does not employ any Students who are currently receiving financial aid and are attending Vogue College programs.
All Students who borrow a Stafford Loan while attending Vogue College must complete Direct Loan Entrance Counseling before funds will be certified.
For Federal Aid recipients, the Student’s payment period is suspended during the LOA and no federal financial aid will be disbursed to Students while on a LOA. Upon the Student’s return, the Student will resume the same payment period and coursework and will not be eligible for additional Title IV aid until the payment period has been completed. If the Student is a Title IV loan recipient, the Student will be informed of the effects that the Student’s failure to return from a leave may have on the Student’s loan repayment terms, including the expiration of the Student’s grace period.
This policy applies to students’ who withdraw official, unofficially or fail to return from a leave of absence or dismissed from enrollment at Vogue College. This policy is separate and distinct from the Vogue College refund policy. (See Institutional Refund Policy)
The calculated amount of the Return of Title IV, HEA (R2T4) funds that are required for the students affected by this policy, are determined according to the following definitions and procedures as prescribed by regulations.
The amount of Title IV, HEA aid earned is based on the amount of time a student spent in academic attendance, and the total aid received; it has no relationship to student’s incurred institutional charges. Because these requirements deal only with Title IV, HEA funds, the order of return of unearned funds do not include funds from sources other than the Title IV, HEA programs.
Title IV, HEA funds are awarded to the student under the assumption that he/she will attend school for the entire period for which the aid is awarded. When student withdraws, he/she may no longer be eligible for the full amount of Title IV, HEA funds that were originally scheduled to be received. Therefore, the amount of Federal funds earned must be determined. If the amount disbursed is greater than the amount earned, unearned funds must be returned.
The institution has 45 days from the date that the institution determines that the student withdrew to return all unearned funds for which it is responsible. Vogue College is required to notify the student if they owe a repayment via written notice.
Vogue College must advise the student or parent that they have 14 calendar days from the date that Vogue College sent the notification to accept a post withdraw disbursement. If a response is not received from the student or parent within the allowed time frame or the student declines the funds, Vogue College will return any earned funds that they are holding to the Title IV, HEA programs.
A student is “Officially” withdrawn on the date the student notifies the Financial Aid Director or School Director in writing of their intent to withdraw. The date of the termination for return and refund purposes will be the earliest of the following for official withdrawal:
Upon receipt of the official withdrawal information, Vogue College, will complete the following:
In the event a student decides to rescind his or her official notification to withdraw, the student must provide a signed and dated written statement that he/she is continuing his or her program of study, and intends to complete the payment period. Title IV, HEA assistance will continue as originally planned. If the student subsequently fails to attend or ceases attendance without completing the payment period, the student’s withdrawal date is the original date of notification of intent to withdraw.
In the event that Vogue College unofficially withdraws a student from Vogue College, the school must complete the Withdrawal Form using the last date of attendance as the drop date.
Any student that does not provide official notification of his or her intent to withdraw and is absent for more than 14 consecutive calendar days, will be subject to termination and considered to have unofficially withdrawn.
Within one week of the student’s last date of academic attendance, the following procedures will take place:
There are some Title IV, HEA funds that you were scheduled to receive that cannot be disbursed to you once you withdraw because of other eligibility requirements. For example, if you are a first-time, first-year undergraduate student and you have not completed the first 30 days of your program before you withdraw, you will not receive any Direct Loan funds that you would have received had you remained enrolled past the 30th day.
Title IV, HEA funds are earned in a prorated manner on a per diem based on scheduled clock hour’s basis up to the 60% point in the payment period. Title IV, HEA aid is viewed as 100% earned after that point in time. Vogue College is required to determine the earned and unearned Title IV, HEA aid as of the date the Student ceased attendance based on the amount of time the Student was scheduled to be in attendance during the payment period. A copy of the worksheet used for this calculation can be requested from the Financial Aid Director.
The institution must perform a R2T4 calculation to determine the amount of earned aid through the 60% point in each payment period or period of enrollment. The institution will use the Department of Education’s prorate schedule to determine the amount of the R2T4 funds the student has earned at the time of withdraw.
After the 60% point in the payment period or period of enrollment, a student has earned 100% of the Title IV, HEA funds he or she was scheduled to receive during this period. The institution must still perform a R2T4 to determine the amount of aid that the student has earned. Vogue College measures progress in Clock Hours, and uses the payment period for the period of calculation.
Determine the amount of Title IV, HEA aid that was disbursed plus Title IV, HEA aid that could have been disbursed.
Calculate the percentage of Title IV, HEA aid earned:
b) If this percentage is greater than 60%, the student earns 100%.
c) If this percent is less than or equal to 60%, proceeds with calculation.
Percentage earned from (multiplied by) Total aid disbursed, or could have been disbursed = AMOUNT STUDENT EARNED.
Subtract the Title IV, HEA aid earned from the total disbursed = AMOUNT TO BE RETURNED.
100% minus percent earned = UNEARNED PERCENT
Unearned percent (multiplied by) total institutional charges for the period = AMOUNT DUE FROM THE SCHOOL.
Vogue College is authorized to return any excess funds after applying them to current outstanding Cost of Attendance (COA) charges. A copy of the Institutional R2T4 work sheet performed on your behalf is available through the Financial Aid office upon student request.
In accordance with Federal regulations, when Title IV, HEA financial aid is involved, the calculated amount of the R2T4 Funds” is allocated in the following order:
Vogue College must return the amount of Title IV, HEA funds for which it is responsible as soon as possible
but no later than 45 days after it determines or should have determined that the student withdrew.
If you did not receive all the funds that you earned, you may be due a post-withdrawal disbursement. If your post-withdrawal disbursement includes loan funds, Vogue College must get your permission before it can disburse them. You may choose to decline some or all the loan funds so that you don’t incur additional debt. Vogue College may automatically use all or a portion of your post-withdrawal disbursement of grant funds for tuition, fees (as contracted with Vogue College).
Vogue College needs your permission to use the post-withdrawal grant disbursement for all other school charges. If you do not give your permission (some schools ask for this when you enroll), you will be offered the funds. However, it may be in your best interest to allow the school to keep the funds to reduce your debt at Vogue College.
Vogue College must offer any post-withdrawal disbursement of loan funds within 30 days of the date the Vogue College determined the student withdrew. Vogue College must always return any unearned Title IV, HEA funds it is responsible for returning within 45 days of the date Vogue College determined the student withdrew.
Any amount of unearned Grant funds that a Student must return directly is called an overpayment. The amount of a Grant overpayment that the student must repay is half of the Grant funds received or scheduled to receive. The student must make arrangements with Vogue College and/or the Department of Education to return the unearned Grant funds failure to do so will result in no additional Title IV, HEA aid.
If enrollment is temporarily interrupted for a Leave of Absence (LOA), the Student will return to Vogue College in the same progress status as prior to the LOA. Hours elapsed during a LOA will extend the Student’s contract period by the same number of days taken in the LOA and will not be included in the Student’s cumulative attendance percentage calculation. Students who fail to return from an LOA will have an Unofficial Withdrawal on the date they were scheduled to return from the LOA. This date will be used for the Cancellation & Refund Policy and RT24 calculations.
If Vogue College attempts to disburse the credit balance by check and the check is not cashed, Vogue College must return the funds no later than 240 days after the date Vogue College issued the check.
If a check is returned to Vogue College or an EFT is rejected, Vogue College may make additional attempts to disburse the funds, if those attempts are made not later than 45 days after the funds were returned or rejected. When a check is returned or EFT is rejected and Vogue College does not make another attempt to disburse the funds, the funds must be returned before the end of the initial 45-day period.
Vogue College must cease all attempts to disburse the funds and return them no later than 240 days after the date it issued the first check.
Vogue College’s responsibilities in regards to Title IV, HEA funds follow:
The institution is not always required to return all the excess funds; there are situations once the R2T4 calculations have been completed in which the student must return the unearned aid.
Any amount of unearned grant funds that you must return is called overpayment. The amount of grant overpayment that you must repay is half of the grant funds you received or were scheduled to receive. You must make arrangement with Vogue College or Department of Education to return the amount of unearned grant funds.
The requirements for the Title IV, HEA program funds when you withdraw are separate from any refund policy that Vogue College may have to return to you due to a cash credit balance. Therefore, you may still owe funds to Vogue College to cover unpaid institutional charges. Vogue College may also charge you for any Title IV, HEA program funds that they were required to return on your behalf.
If you do not already know what the Vogue College refund policy is, you may ask the Financial Aid office or refer to the Institutional Refund Policy in this catalog.
Return to Title IV, HEA questions?
If you have questions regarding Title IV, HEA program funds after visiting with your financial aid director, you may call the Federal Student Aid Information Center at 1-800-4-fedaid (800-433-3243). TTY users may call 800-730-8913. Information is also available on student aid on the web www.studentaid.ed.gov.
*This policy is subject to change at any time, and without prior notice.
A student Direct Loan borrower who is graduating, leaving school, or dropping below half-time enrollment is required to complete exit counseling. If the borrower drops out without notifying your school, you must confirm that s/he has completed online counseling or mail exit counseling material to him at his/her last known address. It is also acceptable to email the information to his/her home (not school) email address if you have it. The print or PDF version of the Exit Counseling Guide for Federal Student Loan Borrowers satisfies this requirement. Whatever material you use, you must mail or email it within 30 days of learning that the borrower has withdrawn or failed to participate in an exit counseling session.
When mailing exit materials to students who have left school, you’re not required to use certified mail with a return receipt requested, but you must document in their file that the materials were sent. If they fail to provide updated contact information, you are not required to take further action.
TITLE IV ELIGIBILITY
In order to determine eligibility for Title IV Funds, Students must:
STUDENT CONSUMER FA INFORMATION
Federal Student Disclosure Requirements
Regulations set forth by the U.S. Dept. of Education require the disclosure of financial assistance and institutional information to students under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965. These programs include the Federal Pell Grant Program, the campus-based programs (Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Work-Study (FWS), and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) programs), the William D.

STUDENT FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE AVAILABLE
The following student financial assistance is available at Vogue College of Cosmetology for those who qualify:
It is the policy of Vogue that only those students selected by the Dept. of Education will be required to comply with the verification process. The student’s FAFSA will be flagged with a verification number that will determine what information will need to be verified and what verification form to use. Please contact the financial aid office for more information. There is a $0 verification tolerance, all discrepancies must be corrected.
Effective July 1, 2012 Ability-to-Benefit Students will no longer be eligible for Title IV Federal Financial Aid if they are first time borrowers. ATB students enrolled in approved programs of study after July 1, 2012 with prior federal student loan balances, however, will be grandfathered in and will remain Title IV eligible.
DISBURSING FEDERAL AID
Federal Pell Grants
Pell Grants are disbursed in two payments per award year. The first disbursement generally occurs during the first week of enrollment, and the second disbursement occurs after the students complete the halfway point of their academic year. This is typically 450 clock hours for the Cosmetology program, 375 for the Esthetics
and Instructor programs, and 300 for the Nail Technology program, provided the student is maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress. A full-time Cosmetology student attending 34 hours per week, for example, will need to complete a minimum of 13 weeks and 450 clock hours before receiving payment period 2 funds. A
part-time Esthetics student attending 24 hours per week will need to complete a minimum of 16 weeks and 375 hours. Pell awards are prorated based on clock hours and COA.
Federal Direct Stafford Loans
Stafford Loans are also disbursed in two payments per award year. The first disbursement takes place after 30 calendar days after enrollment*, and the second disbursement occurs after the student completes the halfway point of their academic year. This is also generally at 450 clock hours for the Cosmetology program, 375 for the Esthetics and Instructor programs and 300 clock hours for the Nail Tech program, provided the student is maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress. Hours and weeks must be met prior to disbursement.
Federal Direct Parent Loan (PLUS)
The Parent PLUS Loan is disbursed in two payments per academic year as well. The first disbursement takes place after 30 calendar days of enrollment*, and the second disbursement occurs after the student completes
the hallway point of their academic year, both hours and weeks, provided the student is maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress.
*Vogue College may make first disbursement prior to 30 calendar days of enrollment if the student is not a first year, first time borrower, and has a current federal student loan balance. Students who borrow a Stafford Direct Loan while attending Vogue College must complete the Direct Loan Entrance Counseling and an electronic master promissory note before funds will be certified.
Need Based Aid (Pell Grant and Stafford Subsidized Direct Loan)
COA (Cost of Attendance) – EFC (Expected Family Contribution) = Need Eligibility
Non-Need Based Aid (Unsubsidized Stafford and Parent PLUS Loan)
Must not exceed COA with all aid combined
COA = Budget – each Student receiving an Award Letter estimating Title IV Eligibility will be assigned a Budget. The COA includes the following items: Tuition & Fees, Room and Board, Loan fees, Transportation, Misc/Personal, Books/Supplies and Other items such as special expenses related to disabilities may be added.
Estimated by the U.S. City Average consumer price index:
Room and Board – $412 Per Month – Dependent Student living at home
Room and Board – $804 Per Month – Off Campus
Personal Expenses – $241 Per Month
Transportation Expenses – $156 Per Month
LEAVE OF ABSENCE (LOA) WHILE ON FINANCIAL AID
For Federal Aid recipients, the student’s payment period is suspended during the LOA and no federal student loans will be disbursed to students while on an LOA. Upon the student’s return, they will resume the same payment period and clock hours, and will not be eligible for an additional Title IV disbursement until the next payment period has been reached by both hours and weeks. If the student is a Title IV loan recipient, the student will be informed of the effects that the student’s failure to return from a leave may have on their loan repayment terms, including the expiration of the student’s grace period.
RETURN TO TITLE IV (R2T4) POLICY
This policy applies to all recipients of Federal Title IV Aid. Students that are no longer attending the School may still owe funds to the School to cover unpaid tuition. Additionally, the School may attempt to collect any funds from a Student that the School was required to return as a result of this policy. The School is required to calculate how much Federal Aid may be retained or refunded on behalf of the Student who withdraws. The calculated amount is referred to as “Return of Title IV Funds” (R2T4). The calculation of Title IV funds earned by the Student has no relationship to the Student’s tuition and fees that may be owed to the School. The School has 45 days from the date the School determines the Student withdrew to return all unearned funds for which it is responsible. The School will notify the Student in writing of the amount of funds that must be returned. If a student provides all documents required for verification after withdrawing and in time for the institution to meet the 30-day Return deadline, Vogue will perform the R2T4 including all Title IV aid for which the student has established eligibility.
WITHDRAWAL AT OR BEFORE 60%
The School must perform a R2T4 to determine the amount of earned aid up through the 60% point in each payment period and use the Department of Education’s formula to determine the amount of R2T4 funds the Student has earned at the time of withdrawal. A R2T4 will be due for anyone scheduled at 60% or less of their payment period.
WITHDRAWAL AFTER 60%
For a Student who withdraws after the 60% of their payment period, there are no unearned funds. The Student has earned 100% of the Title IV funds he or she was scheduled to receive during that payment period. The School will still calculate eligibility for a post-withdrawal disbursement.
Title IV funds are earned with scheduled clock hours. Title IV aid is viewed as 100% earned after the student is scheduled over 60% of their payment period. The School is required to determine the earned and unearned Title IV aid as of the last date of attendance. In accordance with federal regulations, when Title IV financial aid is involved, the calculated amount of the R2T4 Funds is allocated in the following order: Unsubsidized Direct Loans, Subsidized Direct Loans, Direct PLUS loans followed by Federal Pell Grants. The calculation steps are outlined in the following example:
Exit Counseling is required for all students who borrow federal student loans while attending Vogue and withdraw. If a Student is unavailable to complete this information in person, the Direct Loan Exit Counseling link will be e-mailed to them for completion within 30 day of the date the school determined.
POST WITHDRAWAL DISBURSEMENT (PWD) POLICY
Vogue will offer any post-withdrawal disbursement of loan funds in writing within 30 days of the date of the school’s determination that the student withdrew. If a response is received by the student or parent within 30 days that allows the school to make all or a portion of the post-withdrawal disbursement, Vogue will disburse the funds within 180 days of the date of determination.
The school must disburse any Title IV Pell grant funds a student is due as part of a post-withdrawal disbursement within 45 days of the date the school determined the student withdrew and disburse any loan funds a student accepts within 180 days of the date the school determined the student withdrew. Title IV funds not subject to verification apply.
