(A) Payment of scholarship amounts shall be made by warrant of the auditor of state made payable in the name of the parent or legal custodian of the student, of if the student is at least eighteen years of age in the name of the student, and the chartered nonpublic school in which the student is enrolled. Warrants shall be mailed to the address provided by the chartered nonpublic school.

(C) The actual amount of each scholarship shall be the amount described in section 3310.08 of the Revised Code. For the purposes of calculating the amount of each scholarship under section 3301.08 of the Revised Code, the "tuition of the chartered nonpublic school" shall be the tuition amount specified by the chartered nonpublic school minus all other financial aid, discounts and adjustments received for the student. In cases where discounts are offered for multiple students from the same family, and not all students in the same family are scholarship recipients, the scholarship amount shall be the lowest tuition to which the family is entitled.

(E) In the case where overpayments are made on behalf of a participating student, the department shall inform the chartered nonpublic school of the amount of the overpayment, and the chartered nonpublic school shall refund the amount to the department. The amount of the refund shall be calculated based on the period of attendance at the chartered nonpublic school relative to the minimum number of hours the school is open for instruction with pupils in attendance, as described in section 3313.48 of the Revised Code.

(F) In the case where a student withdraws or is expelled from the chartered nonpublic school, or where a student's eligibility to continue to receive a scholarship is terminated pursuant to paragraph (A) of rule 3301-11-09 of the Administrative Code, payment of the scholarship amount will be prorated based on the number of days the student was enrolled at the chartered nonpublic school relative to the minimum number of hours the school is open for instruction with pupils in attendance, as described in section 3313.48 of the Revised Code. Funded enrollment would end as of the last day of the student's attendance, or the effective date of the student's termination, whichever is earlier.
