Tuition and Fees Refund Policy

Students are required to pay all, or a portion, of their tuition and fees for any registered course unless enrollment is officially cancelled prior to the start of university classes. If a student does cancel prior to the start of university classes, 100% of tuition and fees will be refunded.

Withdrawal or cancellation occurs on the calendar day that the withdrawal is requested online or in person at the Office of the Registrar. The university provides a pro-rated refund for students withdrawing within the first four weeks of classes during the fall and spring semesters. Please see the table below for information regarding refunds.

All refunds are less any amounts owed to the university.

The summer refund policy is dependent on the session the student withdraws from during the summer semester.


Exceptions to the tuition and fees policy as stated above will be considered for extenuating circumstances. Students should fill out and submit an Extenuating Circumstances Tuition and Fees Refund Request and provide documentation of the extenuating circumstance with the completed form to the Office of the Registrar. The Tuition Refund Review Committee will review the application and determine whether or not any additional refund will be made. The committee is comprised of representatives from the Office of the Registrar, Office of Student Financial Aid, Dean of Students Office, the Office of Business Operations, and Academic Affairs.
