The Office of the University Registrar manages withdrawals from the university and reductions in schedules. Both of these policies which do have financial impacts on the student account can be found on their Withdrawal Policy webpage.
The term refund should be understood to mean either a)the repayment of money received by the University for tuition and fees, or b) a reduction of charges if tuition and fees have not yet been paid.
Withdrawal at any time during the academic term will entitle the student to a refund of any funds on their meal account.
Students who have prepaid tuition and fees will be due a full refund if they are academically ineligible to enroll. Students who do not enroll for other reasons will be due a refund less any advance payments made toward tuition, fees, and housing. Students who are required to withdraw for disciplinary reasons will be given a refund based on the University's normal refund schedule, as indicated.
Students receiving any type of financial aid (federal, state, institutional, or external) should contact the Office of Student Financial Aid for an explanation of the Financial Aid Refund Policy [PDF].
