Withdrawal + Refund Schedule

Withdrawal + Refund Schedule

Withdrawals

Students who discontinue all studies during the semester (even if enrolled in only one course) must contact their respective deans and registrars. Students may also initiate a withdrawal request from the Student Information System by selecting "Withdrawal Request" from the "other academic" dropdown menu in the Academics section of the Student Center. Tuition charges for the semester will be a percentage of the tuition cost based on the number of weeks in session. The withdrawal process will not be considered complete until either a signed withdrawal form is received by the Registrar's Office or until an on-line withdrawal request is processed by the Registrar's Office. The "date of withdrawal" is used to determine if any tuition and/or fees are refunded.

Students receiving financial aid should be aware that if they withdraw before 10 weeks have elapse, federal aid funds shall be returned to the federal government.  Therefore, they may effectively pay more if they had attended for the full semester and received their full allocation of financial aid.  Please consult with the Financial Aid Office about how your withdrawal may impact your financial aid.    

Summer 2017 Refund Schedule (updated 6/21/2017)

This is determined on a course-by-course basis.  Refund rates may be extrapolated based on total days attended compared to total days scheduled.  The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences’ virtual program and School of Medicine programs are not included in this refund schedule.  Please consult with the Jack, Joseph, and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences and School of Medicine Registrars' Office.
