Withdrawal and Refund Policy

When you choose to drop a class or withdraw from the University, tuition and fees refunds are set on a staggered schedule based on the semester's Add/Drop deadline. To receive a full refund, you must drop a class or withdraw from the University by the Add/Drop date.

The University’s Withdrawal and Refund Policy is outlined in the links below.

Please contact your advisor in the Office of Financial Aid before you withdraw to discuss any potential impact on your financial aid. If you receive financial aid and drop or withdraw from your classes, you may incur a financial liability.
