Withdrawal for Law Students

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 Guaranteed Student 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 100% of the Comprehensive Tuition Fee.

If a student withdraws during the second week of classes of a semester and gives written notice of withdrawal, the student's account will be credited with 80% of the Comprehensive Tuition Fee.

If federal or state financial aid is involved, preference will be given to the regulations of the funding agency. Contact the Business Office in such cases to determine the amount, if any, of refund.
