Withdrawal & Refund Schedule

The General Refund Schedule is listed in the tables below and applies to tuition and fees for course drops and term withdrawals.  The student's "date of withdrawal" is used to determine the sliding scale percentage refund of tuition and/or fees after the add/drop deadline (as defined by the Regular Academic Session for fall and spring).  When tuition is refunded at 100%, student fees are also refunded at 100%.  If tuition is refunded at any other percentage, student fees are NOT refunded.  Housing and meal plan charges have a separate refund policy and students should consult with the Housing and Meal Plan offices.

Summer refund schedule (deadline) for course drops is determined on a course-by-course basis.  After the drop deadline for each summer session, a sliding scale percentage refund of tuition is used for individual course drops. 

Fall and Spring refund schedule (deadline) after the add/drop period (as defined by the Regular Academic Session) for Fall and Spring uses the sliding scale percentage if ALL courses are dropped (meaning a student must do a term withdrawal to receive the sliding scale percentage for the Fall and Spring semesters).  There are NO refunds for individual courses dropped after the add/drop period (as defined by the Regular Academic Session) for the Fall and Spring semesters.  Please refer to the tables below for refund deadlines for each academic year.

Fall and Spring General Refund Schedule

Week of Semester % of Tuition Refunded % of Fees Refunded
Week 1 & 2 100% 100%
Week 3 75% 0%
Week 4 50% 0%
Week 5 25% 0%
Week 6 - End of Semester 0% 0%

  

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. 

Students receiving Tuition Assistance (TA) funds for eligible U.S. Service members should be aware that if they withdraw during the add/drop period (as defined by the Regular Academic Session), the university returns all the TA funds to the government.  After the add/drop period (as defined by the Regular Academic Session) and before the 60% point in the term, TA funds shall be returned to the government using a pro-rata schedule based upon the amount of time the student spent in attendance using the Federal Student Aid formula to determine the amount of TA funds the student earned at the time of withdrawal.  Any unearned TA funds are then returned to the government.  At or after the 60% point in the term, the student has earned 100% of their TA funds.  Learn more about Return of Unearned TA Funds
