The refund amount for students withdrawing from the institution shall be based on a pro rata percentage determined by dividing the number of calendar days in the semester that the student completed by the total calendar days in the semester. The total calendar days in a semester includes weekends, but excludes scheduled breaks of five or more days and days that a student was on an approved leave of absence. The unearned portion shall be refunded up to the point in time that the amount earned equals 60%. Students who withdraw from the institution when the calculated percentage of completion is greater than 60% are not entitled to a refund of any portion of institutional charges. Refunds are based on the withdrawal date of the term's calendar days, not how many times the individual classes have met. Withdrawal dates and corresponding refunds are based on the date the withdrawal for all term courses becomes official, or when the official withdrawal process is complete. The withdrawal process is not complete until all the paperwork and appropriate signatures have been obtained. See Registrar or Enrollment Services for details. See Spring 2013 Official Withdrawal Refund Schedule for Session A (16 weeks). For shortened sessions, see Bursar Office for details, or email Jessica Weaver, Assistant Bursar.
Students who register for classes, pay fees, and formally withdraw from school cannot re-register for that term.
Refunds are not made for late registration, late payment or graduation fees.
A refund of all tuition and other mandatory fees will be made in the event of the death of a student at any time during an academic term.
Students who attend multiple sessions within the same semester may only qualify for a refund if they withdraw from all of their classes. Sessions are withdrawn according to the schedule of the class whose first day of class occurred earliest in the term. Students are ineligible for refunds for any sessions if one session has already been completed for a grade in the term.
Summer refunds are based on percentage completed over multiple terms, depending on courses enrolled in each session. The Summer 2013 refund schedule for Session A applies to summer courses running the full ten weeks of the Summer 2013 term only. Summer 2013 Session B and Session C courses have five week refund schedules. Please see the Bursar's Office for more details if you are enrolled in multiple Summer sessions and would like information about withdrawal refunds. Due to the varying length of courses offered during the summer, refunds are based upon the individual course length. Due to the multiple lengths of summer semester classes, refunds for withdrawals and cancelled classes will be mailed at the end of the semester.
