Reduction of Charges for Resigning from the University

University's Student Tuition and Fees Resignation Policy

Any student who drops to “0” hours on the Web or who officially resigns from the University will receive a reduction of tuition and fees based on the appropriate semester schedule below.


Students who decrease their course load through the end of the Late Registration period, as defined in the current University Catalog, without reducing to zero hours, will receive a refund of fees previously paid. Students who reduce their course load after Late Registration will receive NO refund for this reduction.

Students registered in Part of Term courses, such as 1st and 2nd eight weeks, have until the “Last day to Add/Drop w/no W”  to drop with 100% refund. No other refund is applicable for these courses. Please refer to the Important Dates calendar for this date.


A student who drops from classes from any part of Summer term will be given a 100% refund through the final payment deadline as outlined on the 2024 Summer Semester Important Dates & Payment Deadlines. No further refunds for resignations are applicable. Students resigning with disciplinary action pending or those suspended for disciplinary reasons are not eligible for refunds. Refunds will be applied to any existing indebtedness to the University prior to disbursement to a student.
