Institutional Refund Policy

Total Withdrawal from the University

Students who register but do not attend classes, or who withdraw for any reason after attending classes, will not receive monetary reimbursement or tuition credit unless they withdraw officially by submitting a written notice of withdrawal to the office of the dean of their respective school. The effective date of withdrawal will be the date on which the notice is received by the respective dean and the percentage of credit toward tuition will be determined by this date.

Tuition and fees will be credited towards reimbursement on this basis: If the student leaves within the first two weeks of the semester, 80 percent of the full semester charge is credited; within the first three weeks, 60 percent is credited; within the first four weeks, 40 percent is credited; within the first five weeks, 20 percent is credited. After the fifth week there is no credit. For purposes of determining the percentage of credit, the first week of classes will be considered the start of the semester.

These calculations are based on a normal thirteen week semester.

Summer School Tuition and Fees Credits

If the student leaves within the first week of the summer session, 60 percent of tuition, room, and board is credited; within the second week, 20 percent is credited. After the second week, there is no credit. Refundable credit must be claimed within one calendar year. For purposes of determining the percentage of credit, the first week of classes will be considered the start of the Summer Session.

These calculations are based on a normal five week semester.

ALL FEES, OUTSIDE OF TUITION AND ROOM AND BOARD, ARE NONREFUNDABLE.
