Tuition Refund Policy

General Information
Students must withdraw from a class or service according to proper procedure once they have registered for that class or service. This is the only way academic and financial obligations for a registered class or service can be modified. The proper procedure is for the student to complete an official academic withdrawal in writing on the appropriate form available in the college or school in which they are enrolled or drop in TitanConnect during the online drop period. Once online closing for the semester after the add/drop period then any changes in registration are done a paper Change in Registration form with appropriate signatures.

Withdrawal from the Residence Life and Food service plans must be completed in writing on the appropriate form available in the Office of Residence Life director. The official date of withdrawal will be the date on which the college office executes the change form.

The refund of tuition charges will be available on a credit-hour basis according to the University Refund Schedule. Refunds will first be applied to any financial aid received by the student and then to the student’s indebtedness to the University.

Tuition Adjustments -  Variance Committee
Students who totally withdraw during the semster for unplanned reasons may pettition the University's Variance Committe for consideration regarding tuition assessment. The student must complete a Petition for Tuition Variance and submit it to the Student Accounting Office.

As part of the request for consideration, a written complete explanation of the reason for withdrawal is required as well as any documentation that would support your request for this review.  Examples of reasonable requests include: medical; unexpected changes in employment or other situations beyond your control.

Documentation from a third party may be necessary in order to make a determination regarding your request.  Some examples may include:

  • A letter from your doctor indicating the time period you were unable to attend school.
  • A Letter from your employer documenting the date of the unexpected employment/job schedule change occurred.
  • A college official (Dean/Associate Dean/Asistant Dean) within the specific college/school may have to provide specific written recommendations as part of the request if the total withdrawal was beyond the control of the student and is an academic-related withdrawal issue.

If the reason for the withdrawal is non-academic then a college/school recommendation is not required or considered.
 

Students who receive financial aid/scholarships and have petition for a tuition variance approved will have their award reevaluated.  All committee decisions will be communicated to the student in writing.

The petition will take approximately 30 days to process. Please note: the student must withdraw from classes prior to submitting the petition. Requests for Variance should be filed within one year of the semester withdrawal for which the appeal is being submitted. A total withdrawal fee of $500 is charged to those students who totally withdraw and are successful in their tuition variance request.
