University Refund Policy

Students who withdraw from a course prior to the course start date or during the first week of the course will receive a 100% tuition and fee refund for the course. Students who withdraw from a course during weeks two through five of the course will receive a pro rata tuition and fee refund for the course. Students who withdraw from a course after week five will not receive a tuition/fee refund for the course.

Students will be provided a pro rata refund of tuition charges up to (but not including) the end of the course/session for students who withdraw due to physical incapacity. Students who must withdraw due to physical incapacity but who complete the session (including by earning a failing grade) are ineligible for a refund. The student, or the student's representative, is required to submit reasonable documentation substantiating the student's physical incapacity.

Effective January 15, 2021, students pro rata refund will be calculated based on date of determination as stated below. 

The pro rata refund percentage is calculated by dividing the number of days remaining in the course after the student’s date of determination by the total number of days in the course.

The Date of Determination of Withdrawal is the date the student requests to be withdrawn from a course by submitting the Course Withdrawal form through the Student Portal. In the event a student is administratively withdrawn (unofficial withdrawal) from their course due to non-participation and does not otherwise provide a Course Withdrawal form, the Date of Determination of Withdrawal is no later than 14 calendar days after their last day of Academic Activity. Please see the Attendance and Participation policies for a detailed explanation of Academic Activities.
