Refund Policy

Students who officially withdraw or who reduce their course credit load may be entitled to a refund of tuition according to the following schedule. Prior to the beginning of classes, full tuition is refunded. For withdrawals after the official beginning of classes, the date used to compute any refund is the official date of withdrawal. Any financial assistance to students is prorated. Students who have been dismissed may not appeal for refund of tuition.

*Students who are considering a reduction of their status from full-time to part-time or who are planning to withdraw during the semester should discuss those plans with the Office of Financial Aid, since most financial assistance is based on the number of hours enrolled and may be reduced in accordance with the number of hours maintained.
