Tuition refund schedules

After enrolling each semester, students are responsible for tuition and fee charges unless withdrawn from classes. If a student withdraws from one or more classes, tuition will refund to the student account based on the date of withdrawal at a percentage determined by the course start and end date. For most classes the refund periods can be found in the term schedule below. Classes that do not begin and end on the standard term dates may refund on a different schedule. Check the refund dates by course link below to check the dates for a particular course.

The student fee and most other course fees are refundable only up until the start of the term and are non-refundable once the term begins, even if withdrawn from all classes (no student fees charged during Summer terms).
