Refunds

Students who officially withdraw during the semester will receive tuition refunds based upon the refund schedule below. Refunds only apply to the tuition portion of student charges and are calculated from the date the registrar's office receives an official add/drop form. Refunds are not granted to students suspended or dismissed for disciplinary reasons.

Federal aid recipients who withdraw from all coursework will have aid returned to the federal government according to federal regulations. Those partially withdrawing will have aid awards adjusted to the reduced cost of attendance, while those who drop to less than half-time will have their federal aid canceled, and will receive a bill from the school for balance due.

If a course is canceled by the school, tuition is refunded in full and the registration fee is refunded (if that was the only course which the student was registered in).

Exceptions to the refund policy

Students may receive an exception to the refund policy for exceptional circumstances beyond their control, provided that the request is made during the same semester in which the course is taken and that the circumstances can be documented. Maximum refunds under such circumstances will be equal to one refund level higher than the student received. Students who experience severe medical problems, a death in their immediate family or are called into active duty may receive a 100 percent refund. All petitions including supporting documentation, should be submitted in writing to:
