Tuition and Fees Refund Schedule

2022-2023

A student's change of enrollment status from fully enrolled to leave of absence or withdrawal after the opening of the term, whether voluntary or not, will lead to the partial or full forfeiture of the cost of tuition and other mandatory fees according to the term schedules below. Payments toward completed semesters are not subject to a refund.

Financial aid recipients please note: Upon leave or withdrawal, students who receive financial aid may have all or part of their aid cancelled, depending on the effective date of the leave or withdrawal, as mandated by the federal return of funds formula. This may result in a balance due to the College even though no balance existed at the time of leave or withdrawal. If you have concerns about the financial impact of leaving or withdrawing, please contact financial aid.
