  • IMPORTANT: Classes that do not begin and end on the standard term dates may refund on a different schedule. Check the prorated schedule for a particular course.
  • Classes added after the initial enrollment will be charged 100% of the tuition rate.
  • The University reserves the right to refund any credit balance arising from dropped classes back to the credit card used to pay for them.
  • Due to the unique nature of the various programs offered, cancellations and refunds for non-credit offerings may be different depending on the program or course. If you are unable to attend a course, refer to the cancellation and refund policies established for each program as indicated in the program brochure or web page. Alternatively, you can contact the coordinator responsible for the program. If a policy is not specified, the Office of Academic Outreach must receive the request for a refund no later than three (3) business days prior to the start of the program in order for you to receive a full refund.  
  • The student activity fee and most other course fees are refundable up until the start of the term and are non-refundable once class begins, even if you withdraw from all classes (no activity fees charged during Summer terms).
  • Refunds and/or charges related to moving out of campus housing are governed by the terms of the housing contract.
