University Tuition & Fees

Institutional Refund Policy

A student who officially withdraws from the University may receive a full or partial refund (credit) based on the date of the withdrawal date. The withdrawal date is the date that the Registrar’s Office records the withdrawal. Students who drop all classes prior to the official end of the drop/add period may receive a 100% refund for fall and spring and summer tuition, room and board, and miscellaneous fees. Tuition and fee charges are adjusted according to the classes dropped prior to the end of drop/add.

Students who withdraw completely from the University prior to completing 60% of the day in a given semester are refunded a percentage of tuition and mandatory fees paid. The percentage of the refund is based on the number of days in the term completed by the student. Students who withdraw after the 60% period are not entitled to a refund of any portion of tuition and fees.

The Official drop date is determined by the office of Registration and Records each semester.

  1. Charges and fees generated for courses dropped through the official drop date will be deleted.
  2. Withdrawals beginning after the ‘drop add’ period will receive a grade of "W"; Charges will be adjusted according to the 60% refund policy.
  3. Please verify with the Office of Financial Aid how your aid will be affected if dropping from full-time (12 hours or more) to part-time (11 hours or less) or part-time to less than half-time (less than 6 hours).

Please Note: Students who are receiving federal financial aid and withdraw from the University will be subject to refund calculations based on the Federal Return to Title IV Policy. Refer to the University website under the Financial Aid section to view the Return to Title IV Policy.
