Tuition Refund and Waiver

The Office of Student Affairs processes requests from students for tuition waiver for undergraduate courses. Tuition refunds are contingent on the drop or withdrawal date. It is the undergraduate student's responsibility to file a drop or withdrawal form with the Registrar's Office.

Tuition waivers for dropped courses are automatic. The charges are expunged from the student's account. Waivers for withdrawals are made automatically (according to the schedule below) based upon the date of withdrawal as authorized by the university official who signs the withdrawal form.

Class 16 Week 9 Week 8 Week
Week 1 (Drop) 100% 100% 100%
Week 2 (Withdrawal) 75% 75% 75%
Week 3 (Withdrawal) 50% 50% 50%
Week 4 (Withdrawal) 25% 25% 25%
Week 5 (Withdrawal) 0% 0% 0%
Week 6 (Withdrawal) 0% 0% 0%
Week 7 (Withdrawal) 0% 0% 0%
Week 8 (Withdrawal) 0% 0% 0%
Week 9 (Withdrawal) 0%  0% N/A

If the student does not qualify for a waiver and wishes to petition for a percentage refund due to special circumstances (e.g., medical emergency), the student must fill out the form below and return it to the Office of Student Affairs with a letter of explanation of special circumstances. Additional documentation (such as a doctor's letter of verification) is required. Flat-fee tuition refunds are made only if drops and/or withdrawals reduce the credit load below 13 hours (financial aid packages may be affected as a result of this procedure).

Refund of Fees: The matriculation fee, media, art and other class fees are non-refundable.
