Tuition Cancellation Policy

An official withdrawal from classes may entitle a student to a refund of tuition paid or a reduction of costs incurred. It is important to note that all charges and cancellations are based upon tuition commitments for the full semester. The effective date of with­drawal and cancellation, if any, will be the date when formal application is filed with the Office of the Registrar or the date of official withdrawal using Web registration. In cases when withdrawal is made by mail, the official withdrawal date will be the date of the postmarked envelope.

Students using payment plans or receiving financial aid are re­sponsible for completing all payments if a balance exists after the cancellation of tuition. Please note that all fees are non-refundable after the first day of the semester and only tuition will be cancelled according to the following schedule.

Exception to Policy

If a student believes that he or she has an extraordinary situation that warrants an exception to the tuition cancellation policy. A written request along with supporting documentation must be submitted to the Director of Bursar.

In case  related to medical withdrawals, the Dean of Students will review and approve the academic withdrawal.  Final approval for all financial adjustments will be made by the Director of the Bursar’s Office.
