TUITION AND FEE REFUND POLICY*   (BR# 10-37, May 13, 2010, effective beginning Academic Year 2010-11)

In accordance with the Higher Education Amendments of 1998 (Public Law 105-244), the Federal government mandates that students receiving Title IV assistance who withdraw from all classes may only keep the financial aid they have "earned" up to the time of withdrawal. Title IV funds that were disbursed in excess of the earned amount must be returned by the university and/or the student to the Federal government. This could result in the student owing funds to the university, the government, or both. The amount of unearned aid to be returned is based on the percentage of enrollment period completed.

The refund policy below excludes the effect of the return of Title IV funds. Students receiving Federal aid should consult with their university Bursar or Financial Aid office prior to withdrawal in order to determine the financial impact that the return of Title IV funds will have upon the student.

PLEASE NOTE: The refund percentages listed assume payment made in full and are actually calculated as a reduction of tuition and fees.
