There are two topics covered here: 1) withdrawals during the semester and 2) refunds due to over-payments or loan proceeds.
Tuition refunds are given only when a student officially withdraws from a course; refunds are handled by the Business Office. All withdrawals must be made in writing only and presented to the Registrar. The official date of withdrawal is the date the Registrar receives the withdrawal.
Tuition refunds will be granted according to the following for Summer Terms:
After one session: 90% After two sessions: 70% After three sessions: 50% After four sessions: 0%
No refunds are given after the fourth session of a class in Summer Session 1.
Deposits are refunded only if admission is denied or a class is closed or canceled. Any unpaid balances on student accounts will prevent release of transcripts, and will be subject to collection costs of up to 30% if not resolved in a timely manner.
The schedule of reduced tuition and fees applies if a student completely withdraws from all courses during the semester. The date of withdrawal is determined by the Office of Student Affairs based on last day of attendance (for tuition) and date moved out of housing (room and board). All withdrawals from the College must be reported through the Office of Student Affairs. Refunds are not issued for withdrawing from individual courses.
Refunds will not be issued for dismissal, suspension, or expulsion from the College and no room refunds for removal from campus housing due to judicial sanction.
The Business Office will process any funds due after being notified by the Office of Student Affairs and after the Financial Aid Office reviews grant and loan eligibility. Please be aware that scholarships, loans, and grants may not follow the same refund percentages as the College; you should contact the Financial Aid Office for that information. Financial aid recipients who withdraw from the College after registration but still within a refund period are subject to the College’s refund policy and federal regulations. The Financial Aid Office and the Business Office will jointly determine the appropriate resulting charges and financial aid.

No refunds will be issued for room or board once 60% of the semester has been completed.
Over-Payments and Refunds
The second type of refund occurs when a student overpays on his/her account, usually through the receipt of loan funds needed for living expenses or books. In accordance with federal regulations, if the refund is created entirely by federal funds (title iv funds), then the school will process the refund within the time limits of federal law. Otherwise, refunds will be processed after the add/drop date.
Note 1: Refunds are issued in the name of the student and mailed to the home address in most cases. You must notify us if this should be handled differently.
Note 2 (for students on off-campus programs): Refunds for students on off-campus programs can be directly deposited into a bank account if the student makes arrangements with the Student Accounts Office.
