Withdrawal from the University

A student may receive a full refund for the fall and spring terms if the official withdrawal occurs prior to the first day of classes. Students who officially withdraw from the University after the first day of class will receive tuition refunds according to the following sixty percent (60%) refund rate schedule:

Students who withdraw completely from the University prior to completing 60% of the days in a given semester are refunded a percentage of tuition and the mandatory fees paid. Students who withdraw after the 60% period are not entitled to a refund of any portion of tuition and fees. The refund will equal to that portion of the period of enrollment for which the students have been charged that remains on the last day of attendance by the student up to the 60% point (in time) of the days completed, in a given semester.

The refund for the summer term is 75% during the first week, with no refund after that period. The student is eligible for a refund after all charges and aid have been posted to the student’s account. Refunds will be shown as credits posted to the student’s account, unless the student requests a check for the amount of the refund. Normally, checks are processed each week. There is no refund for students who withdraw because of dismissal or suspension. Withdrawal requires that a student give verbal or written notification to the Director of Counseling and complete the forms and conferences required.

*Note: The University will continue to apply the refund calculation percentages (at 60%) for each semester up to and including Spring 2018 and Summer 2018. Please visit the Office of Fiscal Affairs for an updated version of the Withdrawal Refund Calculations Table.
