The University Policy Office announces the issuance of University Policy 7.3, Processing and Reporting Changes in Student Enrollment Status Under Title IV.
As a participant in Federal Student Aid programs administered under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (as amended), Cornell University must comply with Title IV when it reports changes in student enrollment status. This policy is a component of the university’s Title IV Financial Aid Compliance Program and aims to simplify and standardize processes and reduce administrative burdens, while improving consistency of compliance with Title IV requirements.
This new policy pertains to students enrolled in degree-seeking and approved certificate programs that are eligible for federal student financial aid and whose enrollment status with the university changes, such as by graduating, taking a leave of absence, or withdrawing from the university. Application of the policy is based on the program in which a student is enrolled. The school/college in which a student is enrolled, whether based in Ithaca or Weill Cornell Medicine, is responsible for submitting student enrollment status changes in accordance with this policy.
Please familiarize yourself with this policy and direct questions about this policy to your college or unit administrative office, or for the Ithaca campus units and Cornell Tech, the Office of the University Registrar at (607) 255-4232, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
