Title IV regulations define any course that exists within a semester but does not span the entire semester as a compressed course (i.e. weekend, evening, and online courses). An enrollment change during the semester could result in a Return of Title IV Funds calculation.
For example, a student enrolls for two courses; three credits each, in the fall term. The second course meets every other weekend during November and December. In early November, after completing the first course but prior to beginning the second course, the student drops the second course. According to regulations, the student is considered a withdrawal from the fall semester and is subject to a Return of Title IV Funds calculation. Please note that the Complete Withdrawal Percent Schedules do not apply to compressed courses.
