Refund Policy

Refund policy for students who withdraw from school. A student who officially withdraws from the University (i.e., drops all classes) through the Office of Registration or is administratively withdrawn from the University prior to completing 60% of a semester is entitled to a partial refund of that semester's tuition/fees. Refund amounts are calculated to the day based on the number of calendar days which have elapsed from the first day of class to the date of withdrawal. The date of withdrawal is the actual date the student notifies the Office of Registration of withdrawal or midpoint (50% point) of the semester for a student who leaves without notifying the institution.

Any student who withdraws at any point during the semester is advised to consult with the Cashier's Office to determine whether there is a refund due or a balance owed.

Note: Once classes begin, there is no refund for a reduced schedule. The refund policy applies only when a student officially withdraws from all classes.

For a student receiving federal financial aid who withdraws prior to completeing 60% of the semester, the amount of federal financial aid earned will be calculated to the day according to the same formula. Unearned financial aid must be returned. When aid is returned, the student may owe a balance to the University, to the US Department of Education, or to both. Any student receiving federal financial aid should contact the Office of Student Financial Assistance before withdrawing from classes or reducing the number of hours enrolled to determine the impact of these actions on his or her financial aid status.
