Refunding of Tuition and Fees

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. All requests for drop or withdrawal must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar IN WRITING via e-mail or fax. All e-mail requests MUST be submitted via the student’s ECU e-mail account.
