Refund Schedule

Students who drop one or more courses or who completely withdraw will be obligated to the University for that portion of tuition cost based on the refund schedule. Students who completely withdraw are obligated to pay the non-refundable portion of tuition and fees for the course(s) from which they are withdrawing. Refunds are computed from the date application is received by the Registrar, not from the date of withdrawal of classes.

See Withdrawal from Classes policy. Only tuition, technology, library and UPF per credit fees are refunded. The UPF flat fee is non-refundable. No other fees are refundable after the first week of classes. Trip fees may not be refundable after a certain point. Please check with the department sponsoring the trip for refundability timelines, otherwise for all other fees, please see fee schedule.

Students are not relieved from the payment of tuition and fees if they withdraw before a tuition due date, or if payment of tuition and fees has been extended by the Financial Aid Office. Students who have received financial aid are subject to special refund rules as established by the U.S. Department of Education. A financial aid recipient should first contact the Office of Financial Aid prior to any official withdrawal from the University, in order that he or she fully understands the financial implications of withdrawal.

Failure to make payment will prohibit registration for future semesters. If an account remains unpaid, it may be forwarded to a collection agency.
