REGULATIONS GOVERNING REFUNDS

Refunds are granted for those fees designated as "refundable". The refundable fees assessed at registration are tuition and the designated tuition fee. These fees are calculated based upon the number of semester credit hours for which a student registers. Refunds of refundable fees are calculated based upon the total amount of fees assessed at registration and not on the basis of the amount of the payment, if a student is paying on an installment basis.

DROPPED COURSES
Any student who drops courses within the first twelve (12) days of a Fall or Spring semester or within the first four (4) days of a Summer term and remains enrolled in the University will receive refunds applicable to tuition paid for those courses.

WITHDRAWAL
Any student who officially withdraws from the University will receive a prorated refund of applicable fees according to a pre-defined percentage schedule.
Students who register for courses that are either paid for directly through the use of financial aid /assistance is considered enrolled at the University until they officially withdraw through the Office of the University Registrar. Ceasing to attend classes or stopping payment of checks for fees owed without officially withdrawing from the University will result in semester grades of "F". Thus, any remaining balance owed to the University by a student who ceases to attend classes, but who does not officially withdraw through the Office of the Registrar, is still due and NOT subject to reduction.
