Tuition Refund Policy
Students dropping courses or officially withdrawing during the semester are eligible to receive a refund as follows:
A student who drops courses after these dates will not receive a refund.
A student who drops courses up through August 21, 2015 will be given a 100% refund. Keep in mind, however, that dropping a course or courses can lead to a change in enrollment status (full-time to part-time), which could lead to changes in federal aid, scholarships, athletic eligibility or veteran's benefits. Classes added will be posted to your account as additional billed hours and may be subject to additional tuition and/or fees. Please refer to the tuition and fee schedule.
A student who drops courses after August 21, 2015 will not receive a refund.
If your class starts before or after August 17, 2015 the refund dates may differ, please check with the Business Office to see if you are eligible for a refund.
Refund percentages are applied to total charges assessed and not the amount paid. Once the refund of charges is applied to the student’s account, there may be a balance due to the University or a credit due to the student. Rarely does refunding of charges result in the student’s account having a zero balance. A zero balance would require no action by either the University or the student. Once a student registers, the student is responsible for the total charges assessed regardless of whether the installment plan is used.
The tuition refund policy is subject to change(s) made by the Office of Business Affairs and does not apply to complete withdrawal from the University.
Any student wishing to withdraw from the University should make an appointment with the Academic Support Center. A complete withdrawal form is required. When the student drops or withdraws to zero credit hours and had been awarded financial aid, the Office of Business Affairs will adhere to Federal regulations following the refund schedule provided by the Office of Financial Aid (as mandated by the reauthorization of the U.S. Title IV Program). Not attending classes does not constitute an official withdrawal.
A withdrawal may result in financial responsibility for the remainder of the balance due on your account.
