INSTITUTIONAL REFUND POLICY

When students officially withdraw from the University during the first four weeks of the semester, they are eligible for a partial refund of the charges. There are two types of refunds: refunds of institutional charges (tuition, fees, etc.) and refunds of financial aid. A refund of institutional charges credits the student’s account (decreasing tuition and fee charges). A refund of financial aid ( Return of Title IV Funds) reduces the amount of financial aid available to pay the institutional charges (increasing what he or she owes). See Financial Aid section on Return of Title IV Funds.

Because the institutional refund policy follows a different formula for reducing tuition, a student may still owe money to the university after all calculations are completed. A student considering withdrawal is encouraged to contact the Bursar’s Office to determine what financial obligation they may incur as a result of withdrawing from the University.

The Office of the Registrar is the designated office at which a student must withdraw. The date of withdrawal will be determined by the Registrar’s Office. See the Registrar’s section for the withdrawal process. If a student leaves the University without completing an official withdrawal application, no refund of charges will be made.

Refund of Tuition and Fees are calculated in accordance to the following schedule:

Prior to the first day of class…………………………………………..100% Refund

1st week of class (starting with the first day of class)…………….90%

2 nd week of class………………………………………………………. 75%

3 rd week of class………………………………………………………...65%

4 th week of class………………………………………………………...50%

5 th week through the end of semester………………………………..0%

Room and Board Refund Policy

Before room and board charges will be refunded, a student must officially check out of his/her room. To officially check out, a student must contact a Residence Life staff member to schedule a check-out time, sign a room condition form after the staff member inspects the room, return all keys and remove all personal belongings from the room. The amount charged is prorated at a daily rate for the period of occupancy at a daily rate up to the fourth week of classes. There are NO adjustments to room and board charges after the fourth week of classes.
