DATE OF DROP % OF TUITION REFUNDABLE

Week 1 – 100% (first week of new semester)
Week 2 – 100%*
Weeks 3-15 – 0%

*The 100% refund will be extended to Monday at 5:00 p.m. of the  third week of classes for only those classes offered for the first time on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday of the first week, and to Tuesday at 5:00 p.m. of the  third week for only those classes offered for the first time on Monday of the second week.

Complete Withdrawals

When a student who is the recipient of Title IV loan assistance withdraws or is dismissed, the school must determine the amount of Title IV loan assistance (Stafford and Unsubsidized Staffords) to be returned to the federal government.

The refund calculation is based on the Title IV loans earned. The percentage of the Title IV aid to be returned is equal to the number of calendar days remaining in the semester divided by the number of calendar days in the semester (105).

This formula is applicable for withdrawals on or before the 60 percent point in time in the semester. The policy will also apply to students not receiving financial aid.
