Refunds for Reduction in Hours

Only courses dropped or changed on or before the Census Date are eligible for a refund or credit. Student account refunds can be directly deposited into your checking account.

Fall 2017: August 29, 2017
Summer II 2017: June 28, 2017
Summer I 2017: May 19, 2017
Spring 2018: January 22, 2018

After the Census Date, the following transactions must be completed on the same date or the system will NOT generate credits and may charge additional tuition and fees:

  • changing sections
  • dropping one class and adding a class of equal hours
  • switching to a Co-op program

Additionally, dropping below 12 hours may impact an undergraduate’s eligibility for financial aid, housing and health insurance. Graduate students should confer with their advisor for course load requirements or restrictions.

Impact on Financial Aid

Students receiving funds awarded by the Office of Scholarships & Financial Aid should talk to a Financial Aid Counselor or be aware of policies regarding change in status before reducing their hours to less than full-time status. A reduction in hours will likely result in an award adjustment and/or a required repayment of previously disbursed funds.

Official Withdrawal

Dropping all the courses for which you are registered after the start of the semester requires official withdrawal from the University. (See Refunds for Withdrawal.)
