Summer Refund Policy
A student may withdraw from one or more courses before the end of the semester by completing the Enrollment Change Form. Once this form has been submitted to the Registrar’s Office and processed, the student will receive a refund from the Bursar’s Office according to the schedule listed below.
The refund check is mailed within two weeks from the time the student signs and returns the refund/credit statement to the Bursar’s Office. Students who pay by credit card will have any refunds credited to the same charge accounts. Refund checks are not issued to students who pay by charge card.
A refund calculation will be based on the last day of attendance; however, a student may be charged for services (e.g. housing) utilized after the last day of attendance.
