Policy on Tuition Refunds
(Withdrawal Impact upon Financial Aid)

The student may be entitled to a tuition refund, depending on the date of withdrawal. Please refer to the tuition refund schedule below:

  • 100% tuition refund for withdrawal prior to the first week of classes
  • 100% tuition refund for withdrawal during the first week of classes
  • 75% tuition refund for withdrawal during the second week of classes
  • 50% tuition refund for withdrawal during the third week of classes
  • 25% tuition refund for withdrawal during the fourth week of classes
  • 0% tuition refund for withdrawal thereafter

This schedule complies with federal regulations of the U.S. Department of Education. A copy of these regulations will be kept on file in the Office of Student Finance. A student who withdraws during any semester without the approval of the Associate Dean of Student Affairs is not entitled to a tuition refund.

Students who receive federal financial aid and do not complete at least 60% of the enrollment period for which they are charged are subject to the return of Title IV funds according to the federal Title IV calculation based on a percentage of the student's attendance.

Funds must be returned to Title IV programs in the following order:

  1. Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan
  2. Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan
  3. Other federal, state, private or institutional sources

Students who believe that circumstances warrant an exception from published policy may appeal to the Director of Student Finance. Such exceptions are considered in cases of illness associated with medical conditions not present upon enrollment and/or death and/or involuntary call to military service.
