Refund & Withdrawal Schedule

If you find it necessary to cancel your registration prior to the beginning of classes, you will receive 100 percent refund on all fees and tuition. The absence of participation is not a substitute for taking formal action to be withdrawn.

Students who drop individual courses without withdrawing entirely from the University before the 40% refund deadline will have their tuition and fees adjusted to their remaining credit hour enrollment. Students who request a full withdrawal from the University at any time after the start of the semester will receive refunds, if any, in accordance with the schedule below.

Week 1 100% refund All payments received are eligible for a refund.
Weeks 2-3 80% refund Student will be held responsible for 20% of the assessed tuition and all non-refundable fees  for the semester.
Weeks 4-5 60% refund Student will be held responsible for 40% of the assessed tuition and all non-refundable fees for the semester.
Weeks 6-7 40% refund Student will be held responsible for 60% of the assessed tuition and all non-refundable fees for the semester.
Weeks 8-9 0% refund Student will be held responsible for 100% of the assessed tuition and fees for the semester.

Course costs include the Engineering Differential, University Technology, and University Repair and Rehabilitation Fees. These are non-refundable unless a student withdraws from the course with a 100% refund.

Please note that all courses which were dropped within 10 calendar days of a full withdrawal will be included in the calculation when determining the amount for which a student will be responsible when withdrawing from the University.

Refund dates for the current semester are outlined in the academic calendar.

Withdrawals After the Deadline

According to University academic regulations, students may not withdraw from school during weeks 10 through 16 of a full semester regardless of classification. However, there is a provision that allows the Dean of Students to withdraw students after the deadline for withdrawing under justifiable circumstances only.

Circumstances reasonably beyond the control of the student which caused the student to be unable to attend classes, complete the semester, or otherwise become delinquent academically may be considered for a possible late withdrawal with or without grades. If with grades, the Registrar will solicit each instructor to record either a "W" or "WF" grade as of the effective date of withdrawal. However, documentation to substantiate the student's claim is required. For example, if the request is based upon medical circumstances, a physician's statement, hospital records, or other appropriate documentation must be submitted with the request.

Requests are to be made in a timely fashion when it first becomes evident that circumstances prevent a student from performing academically. Requests delayed beyond a reasonable time will receive critical scrutiny. It is the responsibility of the student to make a timely notification of his/her circumstances. A written, signed, and dated request with appropriate documentation must be submitted to the Office of the Dean of Students.
