Refunds and Sign Up for eRefund

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.

Fall 2020 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.

For complete withdrawal or credit changes for Fall 2020 made:
Tuition refund amount will be:
By September 1, 2020
4:00 p.m. HST
100 percent
September 2 to
September 15, 2020
4:00 p.m. HST
50 percent
After September 15, 2020 0 percent (no refund)

Note: The systemwide $30 Late Registration Fee is non-refundable. Student activity fees are only refundable if you drop courses before the first day of instruction (i.e., before August 23, 2020) or if you completely withdraw systemwide (i.e. from all UH System campuses) by September 1, 2020, 4:00 p.m. HST.

Getting your Refund

If you paid your student bill by cash or check, your refund can be deposited directly into your eRefund (electronic refund) account or mailed to your current mailing address.

If you paid your bill by credit card within the past 90 days, your credit card may be credited the refund amount in the last order of credit card used. For payments older than 90 days, your refund will be deposited into your eRefund (electronic refund) account or mailed to your current mailing address.
