Tuition Refund for Classes Dropped Before Deadline

To qualify for a refund, classes must be dropped by the specified dates (see the Academic Calendar). Note: Refund deadlines vary for special session classes.

When Refunds Occur:

Students that drop classes after making a payment will receive a refund approximately two to three weeks after the drop for a refund deadline. No refunds are issued on an individual basis prior to this date.

Refund Methods:

  • Tuition payments made by mail, drop box, or in person at the Business Office will receive refund checks.
  • Tuition payments made online through QuickPay will automatically be credited back to the credit card.

Refund checks are automatically generated by the SIS (Student Information System) and are dependent upon the up-to-date student mailing address. Students should check the student mailing address in the student’s campus personal information to ensure the address is correct.
