Although these refund policies may reduce charges, students should also understand that in most cases of withdrawal, financial aid will also decrease. If the University requires students to withdraw, there will be no refund.
Students with Financial Aid
If a student is receiving financial aid from the Federal Title IV programs (Perkins Loan, SEOG, PELL, SSIG, Stafford Loan and PLUS) and withdraws within 60 percent of the enrollment period, a portion of the awarded federal aid must be returned. The determination of the amount to be returned is calculated by Student Account Services and Financial Aid Offices normally within 45 days of the withdrawal notification date. The calculation may result in the student owing a balance to the University and/or the Federal Title IV Programs.
Sample worksheets for Federal refund calculations are available for review in the office of the Dean of Student Affairs, Speare Administration Building, Room 305.
Tuition and Fees
If the newly-admitted transfer or re-admitted student withdraws voluntarily on or after May 1 for Fall, or on or after January 2 for Spring, $200.00 of the tuition deposit will be retained by the University.
All students, including non-matriculated (non-degree) students, who drop or withdraw from all their courses will receive refunds according to the schedule.
Room and Board
In the case of withdrawal from the University or release from the Housing Contract, the housing deposit is refundable on or before April 30, or on or before December 31 for Spring admits, by a written notification to the Director of Residential Life. Upon receipt of the notice, Student Account Services will initiate a refund voucher.
A change in plans on or after May and prior to registration will result in the forfeiture of the deposit.
Appeals of the refund policies may be submitted to the Dean of Student Affairs, Speare Administration Building, Room 305.
