Refund Frequently Asked Questions

Will I receive a refund for dropped classes?
You will receive a refund for classes that are dropped within the first 12 class days (the first 4 class days of summer), that result in a decrease in tuition. See Tuition Rates to determine if you will be eligible for a refund.

If I withdraw from the university, will I receive a refund?
If you withdraw prior to the first class day, you will receive a full refund, less the $15 matriculation fee. After the first class day, the refund is a percentage of the full tuition, based on the withdrawal date. Additional information is available in the General Information Catalog under policies and procedures.

I mailed a check for more than the amount owed. What will happen to the difference?
The check will be applied to outstanding balances and the difference will be refunded after 14 days.

How will I receive the refund?
If you have an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Authorization Form on file, your refund will be automatically deposited into your bank account. Please ensure the account information on file is current at all times. If you do not have an EFT Authorization Form on file, a refund check will be mailed to your local address.

If I pay by credit card, will the refund be credited back to my card?
No, refunds are not credited back to the card because we do not store any credit card information. See above for the method by which the refund will be issued.

Is there a site where I can check on the refund?
After the refund is created, you can view disbursement information at Where's My Check.
