Withdrawal / Leave of Absence: Reduction of Tuition and Fees


A student who withdraws from the University (or who is requested to withdraw for failure to maintain a satisfactory scholastic standing) or who is granted a leave of absence from a full-time division of the University during either term of the academic year will be eligible for a reduction in tuition and fees in accordance with the conditions set forth below.

The effective date of separation from the University is the date the student files a written request for withdrawal or leave of absence.

A student who is required to withdraw because of a violation of University regulations shall receive no tuition refund

If you leave within the Percentage Reduction in Tuition and Fees
First two weeks of class 100%
Third and fourth weeks of class 50%
Thereafter 0%

In the case of students receiving financial aid, eligibility for the term will be redetermined based on actual charges and prorated allowances for living expenses.
