Refund Policy

Students who withdraw from the university or from a course may be entitled to a refund of a percentage of their tuition. Students who withdraw must return a completed withdrawal form to the Office of Student Records. Mere cessation of attendance does not constitute withdrawal. The date of receipt of the withdrawal notice by the Office of Student Records will determine the amount of tuition refunded. Refunds are a percentage of the tuition payable in the semester in which the student withdraws, not a percentage of the total amount billed. Only tuition is refundable. No refunds are made when a student is suspended or dismissed for academic, disciplinary, or financial reasons. Tuition refunds are made for the fall and spring semesters on the following basis.

Fall/Spring Semester

Tuition refunds are made for the normal fall and spring semesters on the following basis:

  1. If formal notice is received within two weeks after the beginning of the semester, a refund of 100 percent of tuition is made.
  2. If formal notice is received within five weeks after the beginning of the semester, a refund of 50 percent of tuition is made.
  3. If formal notice is received within nine weeks after the beginning of the semester, a refund of 25 percent of tuition is made.
  4. No refunds are allowed after the ninth week of classes.
Summer Semester/Special Session

Since special sessions, short sessions, and summer sessions vary in length, please refer to the academic calendar for those refund deadlines.

Medical Withdrawal
