Refunds

A student who leaves the University without obtaining withdrawn status and without completing the semester, or who is dismissed or suspended from the University for disciplinary reasons or scholastic deficiency, is not entitled to any refund.

Refunds to students who officially withdraw from the University will be made according to the schedule that follows. (For students who are enrolled in special programs that feature sessions that are shorter than the full semester, refunds will be computed on a proportionate basis.) Regardless of the reason for vacating, refunds will not be made for unused dormitory room fees, except for official withdrawal from the University. Such refunds will be consistent with the following tuition refund schedule. Pro rata refunds, less processing fees, will be made for meal plan fees, based on patterns of usage. Devils Dollars account balances in the USciences OneCard system are maintained from semester to semester and from year to year. When a student leaves the University for any reason, a credit to the student’s tuition account will be granted, less a $5 service fee for Devils Dollars accounts.

The general fee and other incidental fees are only refundable before the first day of the semester. If withdrawal is authorized by the University, a tuition refund will be made in accordance with the following schedule. The official University opening of classes and not the first day in actual attendance governs the refund computation. Courses scheduled outside the standard term calendar will be governed by policies devised for their respective programs.

Segment of Semester Refund (Fall/Spring Only)

Before first day of class

100%

To end of first week

90%

To end of second week

80%

To end of third week

50%

To end of fourth week

25%

Beyond fourth week

No Refund

For students who withdraw during a semester, Title IV funds will be returned in accordance with federal regulations (34CFR 668.22). The Return of Title IV Funds (Return) regulations do not dictate an institutional refund policy. Instead, a statutory schedule is used to determine the amount of Title IV funds a student has earned as of the date he or she ceases attendance. The amount of Title IV program assistance earned is based on the amount of time the student spent in academic attendance; it has no relationship to the student’s incurred institutional charges.


Up through the 60% point in each payment period or period of enrollment, a pro rata schedule is used to determine the amount of Title IV funds the student has earned at the time of withdrawal. For example, if a student has completed 20% of the semester, then he/she has earned 20% of the funds that have been or could have been disbursed. After the 60% point in the payment period or period of enrollment, a student has earned 100% of the Title IV funds.

If a student has received more funds than he/she has earned at the time of withdrawal, grant money, as well as loans, may need to be returned under certain circumstances.

Students should be aware that the regulations may prevent the refund of any personal funds used for payment of tuition and fees. In instances where a student has received a cash payment prior to the official notification of his or her withdrawal, the student may be required to return such payment to the University.

Refunds for Dropped Courses 

Students who remain active with the University, but drop one or more classes prior to the end of each semester’s drop-add period, may receive a refund of charges for those classes under certain circumstances. If an undergraduate student is registered and billed at the full-time rate and maintains full-time registration (as defined by program and class level), drop/add activity will not affect charges for tuition and fees. If, however, a student is billed at a per-credit rate (all graduate students and any undergraduate students who are, or become, less than full-time), tuition charges will be refunded as follows when drops occur

Before first day of class

100%

To end of first week

90%

The end of second week

80%

Beyond second week

No Refund

The general fee and other incidental fees are only refundable before the first day of the semester. The official University opening of classes and not the first day in actual attendance governs the refund computation.  (For students who are enrolled in special programs that feature sessions that are shorter than the full semester, refunds will be computed on a proportionate basis.)

Students who receive financial aid should be aware that a change in the number of registered credits may affect their eligibility for some or all of their awards. Students are responsible for consulting their award letters and/or any other materials issued by the Financial Aid Office – or for contacting the Financial Aid Office directly – to determine the effect drop/add activity might have on their awards.


Summer I / II Terms and Short Summer Semester

(MOT/DOT/DPT Professional summer sessions that are not a full summer)

Because the Summer I and Summer II terms as well as the MOT/DOT/DPT Summer A sessions operate on a shorter schedule, full withdrawals and dropped courses are governed by special tuition refund rules:

Before first day of class

100%

First five days of semester

50%

Beyond five days

No Refund

The general fee and other incidental fees are only refundable before the first day of the Summer A, Summer I or Summer II semester.
