Withdrawal and Refunds

No adjustment or refund is made for late entrance to courses, for absence after courses begin or for dismissal during the semester.

Prior to withdrawing from any courses, students are strongly advised to consult with the Financial Aid Office, in order to have a clear understanding of potential changes in financial aid eligibility. If a student is withdrawing from the College, he/she should provide written notice to the Dean of the appropriate school. In addition, the student will need to submit a signed withdrawal form to the Registrar's Office. Tuition refunds are computed from the date on which the Registrar's Office receives written notice of the withdrawal. Because medical withdrawals fall under our general withdrawal policy and refund schedule, optional tuition refund insurance is offered to students, and is designed to minimize financial losses if a student is forced to withdraw from all classes due to a serious illness or accident.

Refunds for tuition and credit-hour-based fees are calculated on a credit-hour basis and are made according to the following schedule:

During the first week


After first week of semester


After second week of semester


After third week of semester


After fourth week of semester


Withdrawal after five weeks

No refund

(Please refer to the current academic calendar for the summer refund schedule.) Credit-based calculations for full-time students could result in a credit-hour liability that would remain at the full-time level, depending on the student's credit hour load, and the time of withdrawal. 

If a student officially withdraws from residence during the first week of the semester, he/she will be eligible for a 100% refund of room charges. During the second week, a student who withdraws from residence will be eligible for a 50% refund. After the end of the second week, no refund can be given for room charges. Board charges are prorated accordingly.
