Students officially dropping or withdrawing from a course or courses during a term may receive tuition and fee adjustments. No tuition adjustments will be made on classes of less than five weeks’ duration. Non-attendance does not constitute official course drop or withdrawal. All charges due to the University must be paid before refunds will be permitted.
Tuition and Fee refunds will not be issued for withdrawals occurring after the close of the official withdrawal period.
Withdrawals granted for exceptional circumstances such as documented hardship or medical situations may be approved for the refund of all or portion tuition and fees.
A medical withdrawal applies to students who become seriously ill, injured, or hospitalized and is therefore unable to complete an academic term for which they are enrolled. Based on the physician’s information, a determination will be made if the student is eligible for consideration of a refund of tuition and other fees. Based on a pro-rata schedule, the date defined as the last date of attendance will determine the percentage of tuition to be refunded.
Financial Aid Recipients should contact University Financial Aid and Scholarship Services before withdrawing. Students receiving funds awarded by the University Financial Aid and Scholarship Services should be aware of policies regarding withdrawal from the University.
The Federal Higher Education Act requires the University to calculate a Return of Federal Student Aid Funds for students who withdraw (officially or unofficially) from all classes on or before the 60 percent attendance point in the semester. Using a pro-rata schedule, the percentage of the semester attended is used to calculate the amount of the student’s earned versus unearned Federal student aid funds. The unearned portion of Federal student aid funds will be returned to the appropriate aid program(s). Students withdrawing from classes are responsible for payment of any balance due after the required return of Federal student aid funds.
Students wishing to officially withdraw from the University must withdraw on or before the Official Withdrawal Period dates to receive a 100% refund of tuition and fees. The Official Withdrawal Period dates can be found by term at Important Dates for Students on the Registrar Office website.
