Acceptance fee and Advance Payment for New Students

Transfer students and students admitted for spring semester whose plans to enroll change before the payment deadline noted on the enrollment card, may request a full refund of the acceptance fee. Requests should be made in writing to the Admissions Office.

Cancellation and Withdrawal

A student who cancels or withdraws for personal or medical reasons, will receive an adjustment of charges in accordance with the Refund and Bill Adjustment Policy. Refer to the Refund and Bill Adjustment Policy Statement Link out of catalogue site.. Medical withdrawals require approval of the University Student Health Center.

In the case of suspension or dismissal from the University for disciplinary reasons, there will be no refund of tuition, room, meal plan or comprehensive fees for the semester, nor will there be any reduction in amounts due to the University for the semester if the bill has not been paid fully at the time of suspension or dismissal.

Note: The effective date of any cancellation or withdrawal is the date the student initiates the withdrawal process either in writing, in person or over the phone. In no case will an adjustment be made after the first day of classes of the following semester.

Changes in Credit Load

A student who adds courses during the semester will be billed additional tuition and fees applicable to the adjusted credit load. A student who drops courses during the semester will receive a tuition credit based upon the effective date as described above. However, the course will remain on the student's record.
