Refund Policy

Refund for Dropping a Class

  • Students who drop a course or multiple courses – but remain in at least one semester credit hour – are entitled to a 100 percent refund for those classes dropped by the Census Day of the session. Students who drop classes after the Census Day are not eligible to receive a refund and retain full financial obligation for their classes.

  The Academic Calendar provides the Census Day for each session. 

Refund for Dropping All Classes
(Complete Withdrawal from the University)

  • Students who drop all courses or withdraw from the University by the Census date published in the Academic Calendar are entitled to 100% refund.

Students who drop classes after the census date are not eligible to receive a refund and retain full financial obligation for their classes.

  • Students should not assume that they will be automatically dropped from their courses for non-payment. Students are solely responsible for ensuring that they have successfully dropped their courses in order to avoid additional fee charges to their accounts.
  • Students receiving Financial Aid should check with their financial aid counselor before dropping classes as the Financial Aid Office may need to adjust their financial aid award.
