Can I get a refund if I drop a course?


*Note: The tuition refund deadlines are not the same as the drop course limits.

The refund policy specifies deadlines for requesting refunds and amounts of refunds for tuition and fees.

Refund for Dropping Course(s)

A student will receive a full refund of tuition and fees for any course dropped prior to the end of the first day of class. For a credit course dropped after the first day of class, the student will receive a refund of tuition only on the following scale (calculated separately for each course):

  • Before the end of the third business day = 75%
  • Before the end of the sixth business day = 25%
  • After the sixth business day = 0%

*Note: Dropping coursework may result in ineligibility for financial aid and in the student’s being liable for repayment of tuition covered by scholarships.

Dropping an Audited Course

Any audited course dropped prior to the end of the first day of class will receive a refund of tuition and fees. No “AU” grade will be recorded on the transcript. An audited course which is dropped after the first day of class will receive no refund and an “AU” grade will remain on the student’s transcript.
