The date that will be used for calculation of a refund for drop/add or withdrawal will be the date on which the Registrar’s Office receives the official form signed by all required personnel. An arrangement with a professor will not be recognized as an official change. Any student who has registered and decides not to attend must officially drop or withdraw.
A student who officially withdraws from the university prior to the last day of the drop/add period for any term of enrollment will be entitled to a 100 percent refund of tuition and fees charged for that current term. A student who officially withdraws from the university after this date may be entitled to a prorated refund of tuition only. Fees are refundable only during the drop/add period. A student must withdraw from all classes to be eligible for a refund. Any individual courses withdrawn from by a student are still counted in the total hours billed. The following calculation will be used to determine the prorated amount of tuition to be credited to the student’s account:
The total number of calendar days before official withdrawal = Percentage of retained tuition
The total number of calendar days in the term of enrollment
For traditional undergraduate and Master of Arts in Teaching students, the total number of calendar days includes all days beginning with the first day of classes and ending with the last day of classes, excluding final examination days. For evening degree students, the total number of calendar days includes all days from the first day of classes to the last day of classes, excluding final examination days, for both sessions combined. When the percentage of retained tuition is equal to or greater than 60 percent, no tuition credit will be given. Additionally, a student is not eligible for any refund if (1) the student fails to formally withdraw; (2) the student is suspended for disciplinary reasons; (3) the student withdraws when a disciplinary action or honor code violation is pending; or (4) the student withdraws from a class or classes, but does not totally withdraw from all classes for the semester.
No exceptions to the Institutional Drop and Withdrawal Policy will be made, and no appeal will be accepted.
Issuance of credit for room and board is governed by the contract signed by the student with
residence life. Any credits or refunds to be issued to a student’s account will be determined by the director of residence life.
