Cancellations and Refunds
If registration is cancelled before the first day of classes, full tuition refunds will be made with the exception of the admission deposit.
Cancellations will be allowed only after the completion of proper drop/add procedures. Students who do not attend classes and do not officially complete withdrawal procedures during the cancellation period will be responsible for the full amount of the applicable tuition and charges. Detailed tuition refund calculation information and examples are available at our Refunds for Withdrawal webpage.
During the four-week cancellation period for the full fall and spring terms, tuition credits will be given according to the following schedule:
- During first week of classes 80%
- During second week of classes 60%
- During third week of classes 40%
- During fourth week of classes 25%
- During or after fifth week of classes 0%
(The 1st week starts on the first day of a term; the 2nd week begins 7 days later, etc.)
During the two-week cancellation period for each six-week session of the split summer term, tuition credits will be given according to the following schedule:
- During first week of classes 65%
- During second week of classes 30%
- During or after third week of classes 0%
Cancellations for a full summer term course have a four-week cancellation period and will be on the same schedule as cancellations for the fall and spring terms.
Financial adjustments for tuition are based on the date the drop (withdrawal) form is finalized in registration.
Classes that meet in a part of term within a major term (fall, spring, summer) will have different refund deadlines. This includes, but is not limited to, IEP, Law and online programs.
Financial adjustments for housing (please refer to your housing contract) are based on the date of checkout from housing, if applicable. Detailed housing cancellation information can be found at the Housing and Residence Life website.
Special rules may apply for students who withdraw and who received Title IV funds. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid if additional information is needed.
All tuition refund requests and appeals must be in writing and directed to Beth Gloekler, Director of Student Accounts.
Students suspended/dismissed from the University or from University residence facilities as a result of disciplinary action are not eligible for any refund of tuition, room or board charges under the University's Cancellation and Refund policy. Exceptions to this position will be made to comply with refund requirements of federal financial aid programs.
