Verification

If there are any discrepancies in processing, we will send you a letter or call within 3-business days of receiving the information. If a student is selected for verification, Skinworks gives students a deadline of 7-business days (in-state) or 10-business days (out-of-state) to complete verification. Failure to complete verification within 30 days could result in owing cash for the program. Skinworks is dedicated to working with its students if documents are not provided within the specified time-frame.For your convenience, if there are any changes to be addressed/made to your Student Aid Report (SAR) please notify the school. We will process necessary information in-house.If the result of verification changes the student award, a new award letter will be sent by mail or in-person, whichever is most convenient.

Once enrolled into the college, please note that Title IV money cannot be disbursed until all discrepancies/verification items are addressed, we have a valid output document (SAR/ISIR) and an award letter is signed.

If we suspect that a student, employee or other individual has misreported information or altered documentation to increase student aid eligibility or to fraudulently obtain federal funds, we will report any suspicions and provide any evidence to the Office of Inspector General at 1-800-MIS-USED or on-line at: http://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/oig/misused/index.html.

Refund Policy

Skinworks School Institutional Refund Policy – Return of Title IV Funds Policy

As part of the Higher Education Amendments of 1998, Congress passed new provisions governing what must happen to Federal financial assistance if a student withdraws from school in any program length. If a student withdraws from Skinworks School, then the school or the student may be required to return some of the federal aid awarded to the student. The student may also be eligible for a refund of a portion of the tuition and fees paid to Skinworks School for the length of the program.

Institutional Refund Policy
A student shall be refunded, within 60 days of his/her last day of attendance, a percentage of all tuition paid over and above a nonrefundable registration fee of $100.00. Refunds, when due, shall be made with 30 days of the last day of attendance if written notification of withdrawal has been provided to the institution by the student. The balance due will be calculated using the following schedule.

How to calculate refund

All refunds are based on the date of withdrawal as a percentage of the enrollment period for which the student was obligated, scheduled hours (600 hour program), schedule hours (1200 hour Program), portion of tuition and fees obligated and paid that are eligible to be retained by the institution are as follows:

Scheduled Hours 0%-9.99%
600 Program 1-59 hours
1200 program 1-119 hours
Tuition retained by Skinworks 10%
Scheduled Hours 10%-24.99%
600 Program 60-149 hours
1200 program 120-299 hours
Tuition retained by Skinworks 50%
Scheduled Hours 25%-49.99%
600 Program 150-299 hours
1200 program 300-599 hours
Tuition retained by Skinworks 75%
Scheduled Hours 50%-100%
600 Program 300-600 hours
1200 program 600-1200 hours
Tuition retained by Skinworks 100%
  • If a student wishes to withdraw or is terminated by the school within 3 days of starting, the Student is not entitled to a refund on Books, Supplies, Materials or Incidental Fees. The charges for the books, supplies, and student kit will be based on the wholesale pricing.
  • Enrollment time is defined as the time elapsed between the actual starting date and the Student’s last day of physical attendance in school. Refunds are based on students scheduled hours. Cancellation or termination date is determined by the postmark on the writer notification or the date notice of cancellation is delivered to the school administration in person. In cases of Leave of Absence, regardless of duration, the termination date is the date the Student was scheduled to return to the school and did not.
  • Refund calculations are performed 45 days from this date. If the student fails to notify Skinworks of withdrawal, Skinworks must terminate within 30 days and refund to the Student (if eligible) within 45 days of determination.

SKINWORKS RETURN OF TITLE IV FEDERAL AID POLICY

Federal regulations assume Federal financial aid awards are earned directly in proportion to the number of days of the program attended until the withdrawal date. If withdrawn from school during a portion of the total hours the school must calculate, according to a specific formula, the portion of the total scheduled financial assistance earned and are therefore entitled to receive up to the withdrawal date. If Skinworks School receives more assistance than earned, the unearned excess funds must be returned to the Department of Education. On the other hand, if Skinworks School receives less assistance than earned, you may be able to receive those additional funds.

The portion of earned Federal student aid is calculated on a percentage basis by comparing the total number of days in the program length to the number of days completed. For example, if 30% of the program length is completed, 30% of the Federal aid is earned. This means that 70% of the scheduled award for this period remain unearned and must be returned to the Department of Education.

Once 60% or more of the program length is completed, all (100%] of your assistance is considered earned. If you withdraw from Skinworks School before completing 60% of the program length, you may have to repay any unearned financial aid funds that were already disbursed to you.

If excess funds are received based on this calculation, Skinworks School must return a portion of the excess equal to the lesser of:

  • The student’s institutional charges multiplied by the unearned percentage of funds, or the entire amount of the excess funds.

If Skinworks School is not required to return all the excess funds, the student must return the remaining amount. The order that Skinworks School and the student must return these funds is as follows:

  • Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loan
  • Subsidized Federal Stafford Loan
  • Federal PLUS Loan
  • Federal Pell Grant
  • Other Programs
  • Scholarship program

If you are required to repay loan funds, this is done in accordance with the terms of your loan promissory note. If you must repay any grant funds, the law states that you are required to repay only 50% of the grant assistance was calculated to repay. Any grant amount that a student must repay is considered a grant overpayment and therefore must be repaid to Skinworks School or the Department of Education within 45 days or it will be reported to the Department of Education.
