Withdrawals and Refund Policy

Tuition deposits are nonrefundable as administrative fees. Withdrawals prior to the drop/add period will receive a 100% refund of tuition and fees as charged. The deposit will be held. The complete Refund Policy is available here.

Failure to attend class, merely giving notice to instructors, or telephoning, will not be considered as an official withdrawal and will result in receiving a failing grade for the course. Students who do not officially withdraw are still responsible for payment of tuition and fees. A Records and Registrarʼs Office Change Form must be obtained and returned to the Registrarʼs Office. Fees are not refundable after the Drop/Add period. Tuition refunds will not be processed after the fourth week. 

Graduate Financial Assistance

Graduate students are eligible to participate in the Federal Direct Student Loan program. You must be a degree candidate. Federal regulations specify that federal financial aid recipients must be US citizens, US nationals or eligible non-citizens.

A Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be filed annually to establish eligibility for the Stafford Loan. More information is available by visiting http://www.fafsa.gov.
