Title IV Financial Authorization for Students
Title IV Information
Title IV funds are federal student aid (FSA) funds administered by the U.S. Department of Education. Title IV funds include Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized Loan, Direct Graduate PLUS Loan, Direct PLUS Loan, Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), and Federal Perkins Loan. It does not include scholarships from the College or other private organizations.
Federal Student Aid (FSA) regulations specify what charges on your student account your federal financial aid can pay. FSA pays tuition, mandatory fees, room, and board without an authorization. You may authorize Dartmouth College to use the funds to pay for other charges on your student account. You may also authorize the college to hold federal aid to pay expenses in a future term and to pay a nominal amount of charges from a prior academic year.

Your authorizations remain valid throughout your entire Dartmouth career, unless you rescind them. As required by federal regulation, the College will refund to you excess Title IV funds at the end of each financial aid year whether you have provided an authorization to hold a credit balance or not.
