How to get a tuition refund for dropped or cancelled classes

Tuition Refund Policy

You will receive a 100 percent refund if you drop the class before the start date of the class (as it appears in WebAdvisor) or if the class is canceled. A 75 percent refund will be made if you officially drop the class before the official 10 percent point of the term. Insurance, technology, and student activity fees are not refundable.

The start date of the class is not necessarily the day the class meets for the first time. For example, a Tuesday/Thursday class may have a start date of Monday, August 18, but the first day of class would be Tuesday, August 19. To get a 100 percent refund, a student would need to drop the class before the August 18 published start date.  

For classes that start a week or more into a term, a full refund will be made if you drop the class prior to the beginning date of the class (as listed in WebAdvisor). A 75 percent refund will be made for a class dropped on the beginning date through the 10 percent point of the class.

If you're taking more than 16 credit hours, those additional credits are free. Therefore, if you drop any of the credits above 16, there is no refund.

Refund Procedures

Generally, if you pay for classes with a credit or debit card, your tuition refund will go back onto that card. These refunds occur on a specified date each semester.

If you pay with cash or check, any tuition refund will be processed to the preference you set up with BankMobile.

If you are on a payment plan, any refund will also be processed to the preference you set up with BankMobile.
