Tuition refund schedules

After enrolling in classes, you are responsible for tuition and fee charges unless you withdraw from classes. If you withdraw from one or more classes, tuition will be refunded to your account based on the date of withdrawal according to the schedule below.  The student fee and most other course fees are refundable up until the start of the term and are non-refundable once the term begins, even if you withdraw from all classes (no student fees charged during Summer terms).

IMPORTANT: Classes that do not begin and end on the standard term dates may refund on a different schedule. Check the refund dates by course link below to check the dates for a particular course.
