University Refund Policy for Undergraduate and Graduate Students

(Students in the School of Law or School of Medicine should refer to their respective Office of Student Affairs for their policies)
The University shall refund student payments, other than Title IV aid, in accordance with the following schedule. Please note that fees, such as university, technology and activity fees, as well as, special course fees and private instruction fees are non-refundable once the semester begins. Students must apply for all eligible refunds in writing. An application for refund is available in the Student Financial Services and Registrar Suite or on the University Web site.

Students wishing to withdraw from the University must meet with an adviser in the Office of Academic Advisement, 101 Memorial Hall. All official withdrawals must be certified by the Office of Academic Advisement prior to the processing of refunds.

Date of Withdrawal Refund of Tuition & Fees
(less non-refundable fees)
Prior to the 1st day of classes 100%
1st week of classes 100%
2nd week of classes 75%
3rd week of classes 50%
4th week of classes 25%
Thereafter 0%

The refund policy associated with housing and dining plans is available from the Office of Residence Life.

Students are required to withdraw from classes in accordance with established policy. Students may not withdraw from classes or the University without official notification. Non-attendance from classes does not constitute withdrawal. Students remain fully responsible for all financial obligations, subject to the refund schedule above.

NOTE: Non-attendance of classes does not constitute an official withdrawal, and does not relieve the student of his or her financial obligation, or entitle the student to a refund.

View an example refund calculation.

Students who withdraw completely from classes during the period of time in which the tuition refund schedule applies (usually the first four weeks of the term), will have their scholarships prorated based on their tuition charges. The term will still count against the student's maximum number of eligible terms.

For example: a student who withdraws during the 50% refund timeframe will be entitled to 50% of their scholarship amount.

Students who withdraw from some classes and drop to part time status during the tuition refund schedule, will not be entitled to retain any scholarships. Scholarships require full time enrollment (minimum of 12 credits).

This policy pertains to Institutional scholarships and grants; excludes departmental, activity and graduate departmental awards.
