Withdrawals & Refund Periods

If you want to withdraw and have your tuition refunded, you must follow the official withdrawal procedure.

See:  Withdrawing from the College

Not attending class or stopping payment on a check is not considered an official withdrawal from the college and you will be responsible for all tuition liabilities. No refunds of tuition and fees paid to the college will be processed/permitted unless an official withdrawal form is submitted in the required time period to the Registrar's Office or online during the first week of classes.

**This procedure does not apply to non-credit courses. For non-credit courses refunds please see Precollege Refunds and Non-Credit Refund Procedures and Form.

Withdrawal Date

The date on which the withdrawal application is received by the college or processed online is considered the official date of your withdrawal.

Refund Processing

All non-financial aid refunds will be processed after the last day of the drop/add period. The time period for receiving a refund for non-financial students may take up to eight weeks.  If you wish to receive a refund prior to this time frame, please notify the Bursar's Cashiering Office located in Business & Liberal Arts Center, Room B127. Students who paid by credit card will receive a refund credit to their credit card.
