Refund Formal Withdrawal for Tuition, Fees, Student Housing, and Food Services

The following regulations apply to the regular fees when formal withdrawal is approved (Section 704.04 Board of Regents Policy Manual):

The refund amount for students withdrawing from the institution shall be based on a pro rata percentage determined by dividing the number of calendar days in the semester that the student completed by the total calendar days in the semester. The total calendar days in a semester includes weekends, but excludes scheduled breaks of five or more days and days that a student was on a approved leave of absence. The unearned portion shall be refunded up to the point in time that the amount equals 60 per cent.

Students who withdraw from the institution when the calculated percentage of completion is greater than 60 per cent are not entitled to a refund of any portion of institutional charges.

A full refund of tuition and other mandatory fees shall be made in the event of the death of a student at any time during the academic session.

Students who formally withdraw from the institution after the first 60 per cent (in time) of the period of enrollment are not entitled to a refund of any portion of tuition and fees.

Please note: This refund policy is for students who formally withdraw. This refund policy does not affect the drop/add period or current refund policy for dropped courses during this period.

Because of the specific nature of the instruction of Applied Music courses and course fees, no refund of these funds will be made.

Requests for refund of meal plans by students who have formally withdrawn from teh Univeristy will be pro-rated on a weekly basis (defined as Monday through Sunday) up until the end of the thirteenth week of the semester.  There will be no pro-rated refunds of meal plan charges after the end of the thirteenth week of classes.  There are no refunds for missed meals during the contract period.
