Refund Policy

If you withdraw from a course but your remaining number of credit hours for the semester still qualifies you as a full time student, you will not get any tuition refund/credit.

Full time status:

  • 12 - 18 credit hours for undergraduates (All Colleges)
  • 9 - 12 credit hours for graduate and doctoral students (non College of Performing Arts)
  • 9 - 13 credit hours for graduate students in College of Performing Arts

The following fees are not refundable:

  • General Fee: $125 (undergraduate students) / $150 (graduate students)
  • Student Activity Fee: $25

Please note that 100% refund of tuition is available only before and through the first week of the session. During that time, no grade will be posted to student's record. Beginning the day on which the tuition refund/credit other than a 100% starts a "W" grade will be recorded. Ceasing attendance, notifying only the instructor or not paying tuition does not constitute withdrawal and will result in academic and financial penalties.
