Students who separate from the college (withdraw, take a leave of absence) must notify the Office of Enrollment Management, Doty 312. Leave of Absence and Withdrawal forms are available at https://www.geneseo.edu/Enrollment-Management. Students receiving federal financial aid should read the following section regarding the return of federal aid funds when considering separation from the college.

Return of Federal Financial Aid Policy

Federal law mandates how a school must compute the amount of federal financial aid that a student earns if they withdraw (officially or unofficially), take a leave of absence, drop out of school, or are dismissed prior to completing more than 60% of the semester. Specifically, the amount of federal financial aid that the student earns is based on the percentage of the semester completed. All unearned federal financial aid must be returned. Careful consideration should be given to the financial ramifications of separating from the college prior to completing 60% of the semester. Additional information regarding this policy is available from the Office of Student Accounts.
