Tuition Refund Policy

The following policy sets forth refunding tuition for those students who officially withdraw from the university.

Time Period Charge
Within the 1st week of classes: Add/drop period no charge
Within the 2nd week of classes: Add/drop period no charge
Within the 3rd week of classes 25% of tuition plus all fees charged
Within the 4th week of classes 50% of tuition plus all fees charged
Within the 5th week of classes 75% of tuition + all fees charged
After the 5th week of classes 100% of tuition + all fees charged

General fees and deposits are nonrefundable. Upon official withdrawal from the institution, the university will calculate the amount of tuition refund, if any, based on the above schedule. If a student withdraws from the university prior to completing 60% of the semester, the federal government mandates that the student may keep only the federal and state financial aid “earned” up to the time of the withdrawal. After completing 60% of the semester, there is no reduction in federal or state financial aid.

Residence & Board: No refund is made for any temporary absence from the residence halls. Room and board refunds are based upon the conditions described in the university’s Housing Contract.

Please Note: Students are not eligible for a refund unless they have officially notified the registrar and completed all requirements for withdrawal. The effective date of withdrawal is the date on which the Office of the Registrar receives written notice. No refunds will be made until the conclusion of the drop/add period. Students receiving financial aid should contact the Office of Financial Aid to ascertain the effect of a withdrawal on their financial aid eligibility.
