Pro Rata Refund Schedule

Depending on the date of withdrawal students may be eligible to receive 100% refund or a prorated refund of the billed tuition and fees.

Prorated refunds are only issued if the student is withdrawn from ALL of their courses he/she is enrolled in for the term. This includes any Part of Term A, Part of Term B, Full Term, Summer Session One or Summer Session Two classes.

If the student is seeking a 100% refund for dropping an individual Full term, Part of Term A/B or Summer Session One/Two class, while still remaining enrolled in other courses they must do so during the add or drop periods. If it is past the 100% refund deadline the student will not be eligible to receive a prorated refund. Please follow the hyperlink for more information about policies and procedures for dropping an individual course.

Please see below for Full Term, Part of Term A, Part of Term B, Summer Session One or Summer Session Two refund deadlines.
