Dropping One or More Courses but Not All Courses

Students who drop one or more but not all of their courses before the end of the drop/add week receive a 100% refund for the dropped class(es). After drop/add week, students will not be given a refund when withdrawing from a course. If dropping all courses, see below.

 

Dropping All Courses Before the Start of Classes

Returning degree-seeking students who decide not to return before the first day of classes are eligible for a full refund. Students must notify the Registrar in writing.

Incoming degree-seeking students who decide not to attend before the first day of classes will be eligible for a full tuition refund but will forfeit the non-refundable tuition deposit, and the orientation fee if orientation has started. New students who decline admission from the university prior to the start of orientation must contact their Admissions Counselor.

Non-degree part time students who wish to withdraw from the university before the start of classes are eligible for a refund but will forfeit the non-refundable tuition deposit. To cancel their registration and request a refund students must contact Student Accounting Services in writing.

 

University Withdrawal: Dropping All Courses After the Start of Classes

After the first day of classes tuition refunds are calculated on the same basis for returning and incoming students according to the refund schedule below. To withdraw after the start of classes degree-seeking students must contact the office of Student Development . Non-degree part time students must contact Student Accounting Services in writing.

 

Tuition and Refund Schedule

Deadline Total Refund
Prior to the first day of classes 100% *
During the first two weeks of classes 60%
During second two weeks of classes 40%
After the fourth week of classes 0%

* Incoming students forfeit the orientation fee (if checked in) and the non-refundable tuition deposit

Refunds are calculated based on the amount of tuition paid, after grants and scholarships have been deducted. Thus a full-time student receiving a 1,000€ grant who withdraws from the University during the first two weeks of classes would receive a tuition refund of 60 % x [Full-time Tuition - 1,000€]. A student who withdraws during the Fall semester when payment has been made for the full year forfeits his/her yearly tuition reduction.

Students who have received Title IV loan funds through the Department of Education and then withdraw from the University are subject to the return policy outlined in the Code of Federal Regulations (34CFR668.22).
