This newly implemented regulation will impact when federal aid is disbursed and refunded to students. For additional information of this change, please click here

Summer Financial Aid Awards

NO access to any refund from excess loan funds will be provided until you are actually attending at least 6 credits hours. This means if some of your classes do not begin until later in the summer, you will not be eligible to receive any excess refund funds until after the date upon you are actually attending at least 6 credit hours. In addition, faculty will be taking attendance during the 1st week of class.  You must be confirmed to be in attendance at least once during that time to be eligible to receive federal aid.    Please plan accordingly for any external expenses you may have that you were counting on using excess summer loans.   If you do not actually begin attendance in at least 6 credits for summer, you cannot receive any of your loan funds and will have a balance due to the University.

Credit for Tuition and Fees

To be eligible to receive credit for tuition and fees of dropped or withdrawn courses,  students must officially drop/withdraw within the Course Drop Refund Schedule. Credit for tuition and fees will be calculated based on the actual withdrawal or separation date.

Students are eligible for a 100% credit for tuition and fee charges if the class is dropped at least 31 days before the class begins. A 75 percent credit for tuition and fee charges will be given if the class is dropped within 30 days of the start of the class. No credit for tuition and fee charges will be given once classes have begun.

Class/University Withdrawal Policy

In order to receive a credit for tuition and fee charges in accordance with the advertised refund/withdrawal period, a student must officially withdraw from a class, even if someone other than the student registered him or her for the class. Failure to do so will constitute a financial obligation to the University because classroom seats reserved during registration continue to be held for a student until he or she officially withdraws from the class. Stopping payment on a tuition check or credit card authorization or not attending a class does not constitute an official withdrawal from class.

A student who received financial aid should check with the Financial Aid Office before withdrawing from any classes. Federal financial aid recipient refunds will be determined based on the federal pro-rata refunds regulations. Information and examples of federal pro-rata refunds are available in the Financial Aid Office.

Withdrawal after Course Drop Refund Period

A student who withdraws from one or all classes after the Course Drop Refund Period does not qualify for a refund. An exception to this policy may be made in extraordinary circumstances such as an illness or medical emergency that qualifies the student for a medical leave.

If a student moves out of the residence halls before the end of the semester, credit for room and board will be calculated as outlined in the resident contract for that semester. Meal plans will be adjusted appropriately based on the specific circumstances of the student’s departure. Appeals of any charges must be submitted in writing to the Office of Campus and Residential Services during the semester the student departs the residence halls.

Credit for Commuter Meal Plan Charges

If a student requests a commuter meal plan and then decides not to use that plan, no credit will be given for its cost. Commuter meal plans expire at the end of the semester.
