  • If, for any reason, the student withdrawals, the student may no longer be eligible for the full amount of the TA funds originally awarded to the college. To comply with the Department of Defense (DoD) policy, Community College of Denver (CCD) will return any unearned TA funds on a prorated basis through at least the 60% portion of the period for which the funds were provided. Unearned funds are returned based on the last date of student attendance week.
