Refunds

The Bursar's Office issues refunds in the case of a complete withdrawal, a change from full-time to part-time status, a drop in credit hours, or a change from one tuition rate to another. Recipients of Federal Student Aid should also refer to the section Withdrawing from the University.

Refund Schedule

Refunds for non-financial aid students are processed after the end of the 50 percent tuition refund period. If you have a financial obligation to the University your refund may be delayed until the obligation has been cleared. The refund amount you receive will depend on when you reduced your credit load.
