Prior to the Start of the Official Academic Semester - 100% Refund
Within the first two weeks of the Official Academic Semester - 100% Refund

Refunds cannot be mailed until funds are received and checks have cleared.
A refund check will be automatically generated and sent to you at your mailing address, unless other arrangements have been made with the Accounts Payable Department. Please allow two to three weeks for a refund check to be issued.
When you pay by credit card and there is an adjustment made to the charges paid, we are required to credit the credit-card account used to make the payment. Existing regulations prohibit the University from making a refund to you in cash or check when payment was made with your credit card.
The University cannot disburse your financial aid onto your account until the University receives the funds. Any excess financial aid will be refunded to you after the drop/add date for each semester.
NOTE: No tuition refunds are given after the established drop/add date for standard courses as published in the Academic Calendar.
