If a student withdraws before the first day of classes of a semester, the full amount of the Comprehensive Tuition Fee then paid by or for the account of the student from private resources (as opposed to payments from federal or state or University financial aid programs, including the Federal Direct Loan program), will be refunded, less the advance deposit required of each new applicant or academic transfer ($1,500).
If a student withdraws during the first week of classes of a semester and gives written notice of withdrawal, the student’s account will be credited with 75% of the Comprehensive Tuition Fee.
If a student withdraws during the second or third week of classes of a semester and gives written notice of withdrawal, the student’s account will be credited with 50% of the Comprehensive Tuition Fee.
If a student withdraws during the fourth or fifth week of classes of a semester and gives written notice of withdrawal, the student’s account will be credited with 25% of the Comprehensive Tuition Fee.
If no financial aid is involved, the amount of the credit will be refunded, taking into account amounts then paid. Contact the Business Office in such cases to determine the amount, if any, of refund. If financial aid is involved, refunded amounts will be prorated in accordance with charges paid by financial aid funds and returned to the appropriate financial aid programs. Where federal financial aid programs are involved, the prescribed order of refund is Unsubsidized Stafford Student Loan, Perkins Loan, Grad PLUS Loan, other Title IV programs, and then the student. Federal regulations govern this policy. When institutional or non-federal funds must be returned to the respective programs, the order may be governed by program regulations, with gift assistance preceding loan assistance. If cash disbursement of financial aid funds has been made to the student, the Financial Aid Office will calculate what portion of the cash disbursement, if any, must be returned to the financial aid programs. Students who are withdrawing from the University must contact the Financial Aid Office for an assessment of their refund/repayment status. If a student withdraws after five weeks of classes in a semester, either voluntarily or involuntarily, the Comprehensive Tuition Fee is NOT REFUNDABLE. The student activities fee, the Student Bar Association fee and the acceptance deposit are not refundable. All refunds of the Comprehensive Tuition Fee will be subject to federal regulations regarding institutional refund policies.
