Housing

A student who officially withdraws completely from the university prior to the beginning of any semester is eligible to receive a full refund of housing fees, but must forfeit the housing deposit.

A student who officially withdraws completely from the university during the semester will forfeit the housing deposit but is entitled to receive a pro-rated refund of housing fees, based upon a weekly scale.

The Housing Office will determine if any refund of housing fees is possible for a student who leaves university housing for medical reasons.

If a student is asked to leave university housing, the details concerning a housing refund shall be determined by the Director of Housing.

The university shall always retain the authority to allow exceptions to this policy.

Meals

A student who officially withdraws after the beginning of a semester and who notifies Enrollment Services will be entitled to a refund of the board paid for the remainder of the semester.

A student who withdraws during a week will be charged for the entire week.

Tuition

The date when students submit a completed withdrawal form to the Student Enrollment Center to cancel their registration or to withdraw from all courses determines their eligibility for a refund. Refunds are not given on individual course drops (withdrawals) after the end of the drop period.

A student who submits to the Student Enrollment Center an officially approved withdrawal form prior to the beginning of any semester is eligible for a complete refund of all fees except the application fee and registration and room deposits.

(Please refer to refund policies that pertain to housing and meal refunds, if applicable.)

A student who withdraws from the university completely after the beginning of a semester and who submits to the Student Enrollment Center an officially approved withdrawal form is entitled to a refund of tuition according to the schedule as follows (Subject to change):

Refund (%)Period of Attendance
100 First Week
80 Second Week
60 Third Week
50 Fourth Week
40 Fifth Week
No Refund After the Fifth Week

Federal guidelines for the pro-rating of student financial aid awards to students who totally withdraw from the university partway through a term usually do not coincide with the above refund policy.

Students contemplating mid-term withdrawal from the university should first contact the Student Enrollment Center to discuss the impact of a contemplated mid-term withdrawal on their student financial aid awards and possible resultant personal liability to the university for charges not covered by prorated student financial aid awards.
