Withdrawal and Refund

A student is considered in attendance and is responsible for any tuition balances due until he or she has formally notified the University in person or in writing of their withdrawal.  Refunds are made to the student on the basis of the date he/she has formally notified the Dean in person or in writing of their withdrawal. Students who formally withdraw from the University before the official start of the semester or term will not be liable for tuition or fees.

The federal refund policy will be used for all students receiving federal aid.  This is a proportional calculation based upon time enrolled during a semester, type of aid received and direct costs.  Students impacted by this policy will receive a worksheet outlining the steps and resulting calculation.
