Student declaration

I understand that by typing my name below, I irrevocably authorize Mount Allison University to withdraw money from my Student Financial Account (Connect) if the U.S. Department of Education requires a return of loan funds via Title IV Funds (U.S. Federal Direct Loan Funds), which may occur if I withdraw from Mount Allison during an academic term that I am currently borrowing money for.

Furthermore, if the return of Title IV Funds results in an outstanding balance on my Student Financial Account, I will pay the outstanding balance immediately. Any unpaid balance will be subject to late fees, loss of Mount Allison system services and potential collections as outlined in the University Academic Calendar.

I acknowledge that it is my responsibility to be aware of the U.S. Department of Education policies that are associated with Direct Loans, and I agree to abide by these regulations.
