Tuition Credit for Withdrawal

General Policies

Tuition, lab fees, room and board and other related charges will be refunded to the student’s account based upon the student’s official withdrawal date. Please refer to the tables below for the refund policy based upon the course type and length.

Refunds for Financial Aid funds are calculated in the following manner:

  • The amount that the student is to be charged for the actual time period enrolled is first determined.
  • The amount that the student was expected to pay for the term enrolled is determined. This amount is calculated based on federal guidelines for return of Title IV (federal) funds up to and including the date on which 60% of the term is completed.
  • If the amount the student was expected to pay exceeds the charges for the time enrolled, the student will receive no federal financial aid. This may result in the student owing the University funds, despite the fact that they previously expected the assistance of federal financial aid. This is a federally-mandated refund policy.
  • If the amount the student was expected to pay from their own funds does not exceed the charges for the time enrolled, then the student will be allowed to retain a portion of the federal financial aid (according to federal regulations) to pay the difference between what they were expected to pay from personal funds and what they were actually charged.
  • Students who have received federal Title IV funds as part of their financial aid packages will be required to return those funds in the following order of priority:
    1. Federal Family Education Loan (Stafford Loan) Unsubsidized funds
    2. Federal Family Education Loan (Stafford Loan) Subsidized funds
    3. Federal Perkins Loan Program funds
    4. Federal PLUS Loan funds
    5. Federal Pell Grant Program funds
    6. Federal SEOG Program funds
    7. Other Student Financial Aid funds
  • A proportion, corresponding to the refund rate, of any institutional grant money awarded will be allowed to help cover the amount the student was charged for the time period enrolled. This will be figured after all the above calculations have been made.
  • Since the refunds must be coordinated with the various lenders, please allow 30 days for the University to finalize the credits and/or adjustments to the student's account. After this process is completed, if a refund is due it will be mailed to the address on record. In addition, if charges remain due, an invoice will be mailed to the student.
