Refund Schedule

Students are obligated for the full amount of tuition for the courses for which they are registered, subject to the refund schedule.

Tuition Refund Policy

You will have 10 days to make changes to your enrollment without penalty.

You will be charged 50 percent of tuition through the 20th day if you drop below 12 credit hours (full-time); or, if you are already a part-time student and you drop below your original enrolled credits. Any changes made after the 20th day, will result in a full charge of tuition

This rule does not apply to MBA, MOL, or ACCEL students.

This rule does not apply if you fully withdraw from the university. In that case, your tuition will be prorated based on the number of days attended.

Other Refunds

Upon withdrawing from the University, a refund for room and board will be made on a pro rata basis dating from the day the student has successfully completed the check out procedure with Student Affairs. No refund will be given on fees.

*Refund schedule is subject to change based on Federal Guidelines.
