University Updates on Coronavirus

  • Federal Title IV funds include Pell Grant, SEOG, Stafford Loans, Perkins Loans and Parent Plus Loans. 
  • Federal guidelines allow for Federal Title IV funds (Pell Grant, SEOG, Stafford Loans, Perkins Loans and Parent Plus Loans) to automatically be credited only toward current tuition and fees plus on-campus housing and meal plan charges.  
  • The guidelines additionally allow students to authorize charges such as traffic and library fines to be deducted from these funds, as well as prior term charges up to $200.  
  • Students may also authorize Winston-Salem State University to retain excess Title IV funds in their student accounts, in which case such funds will be applied toward future charges. 

Title IV Form

  • Winston-Salem State University is required to have signed authorization from you in order to use Title IV funds for miscellaneous charges.
  • By signing this form, your account charges will be deducted at the time your financial aid is placed on your account. Importantly, this will help to prevent an “account hold” for unpaid charges, which would block you from registering for future semesters, obtaining grades and transcripts.
  • This Title IV Authorization Form will be valid for the entire period in which you are enrolled; however, this authorization may be rescinded at any time.
