Refunds and Account Adjustments
If a student decides to add or drop courses, withdraw from school, or delete other contracted services, an official change of registration must be processed. This may be handled by filing the change of registration form in Student Academic Services or using the BANNER Information System. If a complete withdrawal is contemplated, and/or if the student plans to cancel the Room and Meal Plan contract, proper notification must also be provided to the Office of University Services.

If a student does not provide proper written notification to the University or using the BANNER Information System, financial obligations will remain binding, regardless of whether classes were attended or whether or not any of the contracted services were utilized.

Refunds or additional charges for courses are posted to a student's account when the official change of registration form is received and processed or the transaction is completed using the BANNER Information System via the Web. Charges for added courses are made at the full quarter's rate, regardless of when the course is added.

In the event that enrollment changes result in a refund, tuition will be refunded according to the schedule that follows. If the refund results in a credit balance on the account, the student will be sent an email when their check is mailed or direct deposited. If the original payment was made with a credit card, the credit card will be refunded. If there is an owing balance on the account, the refund will first be applied against the owing balance. All refunds, including overpayments, will go to the student. Any questions regarding tuition refunds should be referred to Student Financial Services.

Examples: Tuition Refunds and Adjustments

1. A student who was originally enrolled for 15 credits drops one 3-credit course the third week of class. There is no tuition adjustment, since the fee for 12 credits is the same as 15.

2. A student who was originally enrolled for 13 credits drops one 3-credit course the second week of class. The refund is as follows:

Full tuition (13 credits) $9,534
Tuition for 10 credits ($795 x 10) $7,950
Difference $1,584
75 percent refund $1,188
Tuition due on dropped course $396







3. Assume the student drops a 5-credit course the second week of class. The refund is as follows:

Full tuition (13 credits) $9,534
Tuition for 8 credits ($795 x 8) $6,360
Difference $3,174
75 percent refund $2,380.50
Tuition due on dropped course $793.50






4. A student who was originally enrolled for 11 credits drops 2 credits and at the same time adds 3 credits during the second week of class. The result is as follows:

Old level - 11 credits ($795 x 11) $8,745
New level - 12 credits $9,534
Additional due $789
