Tuition Adjustment Policy
Tuition adjustments are based upon the total tuition due for all courses in any given semester. They are made on a percentage basis dependent on the date that the written withdrawal request is received in the registrar's office. Tuition adjustment schedules, with the appropriate dates and percentages, are published in the course schedules at the beginning of each semester. Please note: Telephone messages, communications with faculty members or advisors and non-attendance at class are not valid methods of withdrawing from classes and do not obligate the University to refund all or part of the tuition. The fact that a student has not attended a class has no impact on tuition adjustment.
Non-payment of tuition without proper notification to the registrar's office of withdrawal from classes does not obligate the University to refund tuition payments or to credit a student's account for the tuition for that semester. If the University exercises its right to drop students for non-payment, students must re-register for the courses. Payment of the outstanding tuition does not constitute re-registration and does not ensure the student a seat in any class.
Requests for a tuition refund must be made in writing to the business office or indicated on the withdrawal form available in the registrar's office. Registration, admission application fee and late fees are non-refundable. A student who is receiving financial aid will be subject to the refund policy established by federal guidelines.
