Refund of Tuition and Fees

This section refers to tuition and fee refunds, which MAY result in a student account refund, direct deposit or check.

Students who make schedule adjustments (drop or add courses) resulting in a fewer credit hours or completely withdrawal from the University may be eligible to receive a refund of tuition and fees.

Any refund due will be applied against any student account balance owed to the University.

After the 1st week of the semester, students must complete a course withdrawal form and submit it to the Registrar’s Office to be eligible for refunds. The date used to determine the amount of refund is the date on which the course withdrawal form, with all necessary signatures, is submitted to the Registrar’s Office. Please review the Course Withdrawal Policy for details.

Refer to the Registar's Office Calendar & Important Semester Dates for last days to withdrawal.

 Refunds for shorter term periods will be calculated proportionally in accordance with the fall and winter semesters schedule indicated above.

Separate refund policies exist that apply to the death or serious illness of a student.  Refer to Special Tuition Refund Policy 6.2-1 for additional information.  To view full policies regarding refunds refer to the following links:
