Refund Schedules (current and future)

- For earlier refund schedules, go here ->

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Prorated refunds are only issued if the student is withdrawn from ALL of their courses he/she is enrolled in for the term.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 click on the hyperlink for more information about 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.

Before a refund is made to you, the University must make a refund to appropriate financial aid programs providing assistance to you. If you are indebted to the University at the time of withdrawal, you will have the amount owed deducted from the amount of any refund available.

Please note that, based on the date of withdrawal and the type of aid awarded, students may not be able to retain their financial aid. Please contact Student Financial Aid for further information.
Refunds for withdrawal from the University will be prorated based on the official date of withdrawal and the total number of hours enrolled on that date.

Note: Refund amounts do not include the NON-REFUNDABLE FEES. The Health Service and the Student Health Insurance fees are not refunded after the drop and add period starting in Spring 2011 so that students can continue to be covered and eligible to receive these fee-related services. The Transportation Fee is not refunded after the second Friday of fall and spring (first Friday of summer.)
