Title IV Authorization

Why you should sign an authorization

If you don’t sign a Title IV authorization, your aid can’t be used to pay miscellaneous charges such as parking permits, orientation fees, CimsonCard deposits, library fines, or other optional fees.

If you don’t sign an authorization:

  • You could get a refund and still owe miscellaneous charges.
  • Your account could be past due and you would be charged a late payment fee.

A Title IV authorization remains in effect for your entire IU academic career unless you revoke it. It’s campus-specific, so if you transfer to another IU campus, you must sign a new authorization.
