Tuition Refunds

To be eligible for a full refund of tuition, you must drop classes on or before the last day to drop with a refund deadline as listed for in the academic calendar. Refunds will not be authorized after the refund date. 

Classes in sessions with different start or end dates (four week, eight week, ten week, dynamic, etc.) may have an earlier or later last day to drop with a refund. If you do not attend classes, you must drop by the published session date for each class to receive a refund.

Refund Options

Electronic Refunds and Disbursements

Refunds are available by Direct Deposit or by Paper Check.  If no refund preference is set up, the system will default to Paper Check sent to the mailing address in your SIS account.
