Withdrawal Calculation

This refund policy applies to traditional courses. This policy does not apply to summer courses, access courses, or any courses offered through the Graduate College program. A student who withdraws during the refund period, will receive a refund to their student account according to the following policy. All refunds will be calculated from the date the application for withdrawal is filed with the Office of Student Life. Non-attendance of class does not constitute official withdrawal. This refund policy applies to both full, and part-time students. Refund of traditional tuition is according to the following schedule:

Prior to the first day of classes

100%

First to fifth day of the academic semester

90%

Sixth to 10th day of the academic semester

80%

11th to 15th day of the academic semester

65%

16th to 20th day of the academic semester

50%

After the 20th day of the academic semester

No refund

Fees such as the technology fee, activity fee, health services fee, and course fees are non-refundable after the fifth day of the academic semester. Refund of room and board is on a pro-rated basis on a 15-week semester if withdrawal occurs within the refund period.

Institutional financial aid will be adjusted accordingly. (Ex: If a student withdraws during the first to fifth day of the academic semester and 90 percent of the tuition is removed from the student account, 90% of the institutional financial aid will be removed as well). Federal Title IV program assistance will be returned to the appropriate funds according to federal guidelines. The amount of Title IV program assistance earned has no relationship to the student's incurred institutional charges.

Tuition charges for full-time students who drop to part-time status during the institutional refund period, but do not withdraw, will be prorated. Proration will be based on the current full-time tuition charge and divided by 15 hours of study.  This will determine a per credit hour rate charge. Full-time institutional aid will be canceled if a student drops to part-time during the refund period. Federal aid will be adjusted accordingly. Tuition for students who drop to part-time status after the refund period will not be prorated.

Tuition charges for part-time students who drop a class/classes and remain part-time status during the institutional refund period, but do not withdraw, will be prorated.  Proration will be based on the current part-time credit hour charge.  Federal aid will be adjusted accordingly, Part-time students who drop a class/classes after the refund period will not be prorated.
