2023-2024 Traditional Undergraduate Academic Catalog


Students who withdraw from the university may receive a refund of their tuition and fees, in accordance with the academic calendar. 

Students should review the published refund dates prior to the beginning of the term. The number of classes a student actually attends is not considered in the calculation of refunds. Students who have not prepaid their tuition in full at the beginning of the semester and then subsequently withdraw may have a balance due, not a refund. The university does not make exceptions to this policy. 

Eligibility for a refund is contingent upon official notification of withdrawal, in writing, directed to the Office of the Registrar. For purposes of withdrawal and refund, telephone or verbal notice of withdrawal is not adequate, and the official date of withdrawal will be established only by the receipt of formal written notice or a completed student withdrawal form.

University housing contracts are written for the entire term. Therefore, no refunds for room rent will be granted for students who withdraw after the end of the first week of classes. For the fall, spring, and summer terms, one week of room and board expense will be deducted from the refund for those who drop before the beginning of the second week of classes. Students who move off campus prior to the contract end date will be charged a $100 contract breakage fee and will not have their housing or meal plan fees refunded.

Refunds will be made 30 days after the official date of withdrawal from the university, and then only after all forms and procedures for aid application and official withdrawal have been completed and signed. Students who are suspended or who are asked to withdraw for disciplinary reasons are not eligible for refunds, regardless of the date of withdrawal.
