Tuition Refund Dates and Schedule
Dropping or withdrawing from a course or courses is a formal procedure that requires action on behalf of the student. A student who wishes to drop a course should do so through the myUVM portal. To withdraw from a course, a student must obtain a withdrawal form from the Registrar's Office, receive the appropriate signatures and turn it in to the Student Service Center. The date used for determining whether the action is a drop or a withdrawal is the date that action is taken by the student.
Note! Students who simply stop attending classes without completing one of the formal procedures listed above will not be dropped or withdrawn from the course and will likely receive a failing grade on their transcript.
Who does this refund schedule apply to? The following refund schedule applies to Undergraduate and Graduate students and is the same whether the student is withdrawing for medical or non-medical reasons.
Medical Student Tuition Refunds: Medical students who take a leave or withdraw from the COM curriculum will have their tuition charges adjusted on a pro-rated basis based on the length of the courses attempted as compared to the overall length of the semester. Students will be billed the full calculated amount of any attempted courses, clerkships and/or rotations if more than 1/3 of the course has been completed at the time of withdrawal. At the time that a student leaves or withdraws from the COM curriculum, or otherwise adjusts their curricular plan, the Office of Medical Student Education will provide Student Financial Services with detailed information regarding the student's educational plan and timeline and this information shall be used in determining the amount of any tuition refund.
Tuition Insurance: If students/families wish to insure their tuition investment in the case they should need to leave school for medical reasons, they should enroll in the Tuition Refund Plan offered through A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. prior to the first day of classes for that particular semester.
What will be refunded to me? All students who completely withdraw from the University will receive a refund for tuition and fees based on the schedule below. On campus students will also receive a refund for room and board charges according to the schedule below.
