If a student withdraws from the university or drops a course, the refund policy will be:
- For changes made through the first ¼ of the term of instruction (measured in weekdays, not class days), 100 percent of the semester course fees and tuition for the net credits dropped will be refunded, if applicable.
- For changes made after the first ¼ of the term of instruction and through the end of the session, no refund will be made for any credits dropped. Any courses approved for late add will be billed in the next monthly bill.
When dropping a course, the date the notification from the department is received in the Office of the Registrar will determine the amount of refund applicable.
Appeals concerning the refund policy should be referred to the Office of the Registrar.
Medical Withdrawal Policy for Class Tuition and Fees Refund
If a medical withdrawal is approved with a committee-required last date of attendance starting with the first day of semester through the last day of the end of the semester refund period, students receive “no record class drops and 100% tuition and fees refund. If a medical withdrawal is approved with a committee-required last date of attendance starting with the first day of no tuition refund through the last day of the semester, students receive W grades and a lump-sum tuition refund of $500 which is the approximate cost of 1 tuition credit hour for an in-state Freshman.
Students are responsible for any tuition and fee charges not covered by the lump-sum tuition refund. If the lump-sum tuition refund creates a tuition and fees credit on the students’ account, the refund will be applied to the students’ accounts.
This policy is non-appealable.
Net refunds due to a drop of credits or withdrawal from the university are processed daily and posted to students' accounts. Amounts due students will be applied against outstanding balances owed the University or returned to students. Questions regarding account balances should be referred to the Student Accounts Office, Hannah Administration Building, 426 Auditorium Road, Room 140.
