Refund and Withdrawal Policy

It is to the financial advantage of students withdrawing, dropping to part-time status or dropping to a lower block of credit hours to do so as early in the semester/session as possible. Refunds for tuition and fees (excluding room and board charges which are determined by contractual agreement) will be considered during the twenty (20) class day refund period in the Fall and Spring and the five (5) day refund period during the summer. No refunds will be considered after the published "last day for partial refund". If a student wishes to appeal, the process must be initiated in writing to the Office of the Registrar. Refer to catalogs, contracts or contact the appropriate office/department for greater detail. Students withdrawing from the university must do so in writing to the Office of the Registrar. A $25.00 non-refundable registration/ processing fee is charged for students withdrawing.
