Refund Policies

Tuition Refund

Students who pay tuition but subsequently must withdraw or take a leave of absence may be eligible for a tuition refund, depending on when the request is made and how long the course is. See the schedule below for more details.

To be considered for a tuition refund, a withdrawal or leave must be officially recognized and authorized. To be official, the Professional and Graduate Education office must receive either Withdrawal from a Course Request Form or a Leave of Absence Request Form in order to process and authorize the request. The date the form is received is the date used to determine whether a tuition refund is in order. Please see Withdrawal from the College in the Academic Regulations chapter for more information.

If a student officially withdraws or takes a leave of absence before the first day of classes, students will be refunded 100 percent of their previously paid tuition, less the enrollment deposit for new students.

If a student officially withdraws or takes a leave of absence on or after the first day of classes, refunds occur on the following schedule based on the term.

If there are any credits on a withdrawn student's account after charges are adjusted, refunds will be sent to the student within 30 days of notification of change in status.

Tuition Refund Schedule

When withdrawal is requested 14 week courses (e.g., fall or spring full semester courses) 5-7 week courses (e.g., half-semester or summer term courses) Courses less than 5 weeks (e.g., January term and accelerated summer courses)

Refund of Scholarships

If a student receiving a scholarship drops or withdraws from a class, the amount of the scholarship applied towards the student bill will be proportional to the amount billed per the tuition refund schedule.

Refund of Federal Student Loans

Grad PLUS loans are returned before the Federal Direct Student Loan when loan funds must be returned.

Refund of Fees

There is no refund of the graduate student fee if a student withdraws on or after the first day of classes.
