Tuition Refund Policy and Procedure

By registering for classes, students accept responsibility for paying charges for the entire semester/term, regardless of the method of payment and attendance in class.

Students who are considering withdrawing (either from the University or individual classes) should seriously consider the financial consequences. Depending on the time of withdrawal, balances may still be owed to the University, the Federal Government (if a Title IV program aid recipient), State Governments, Agencies, loan providers, and other non-University grantors of scholarships and awards. Students are urged to meet with a financial aid counselor to discuss the monetary impact of withdrawal and their eligibility for aid in the current and future semesters.
