Tuition and Fee Adjustment Information
Policy for Adjustment of Tuition and Fees
Please consult the Academic Calendar for add/drop deadlines each semester. During the open enrollment period, if students drop classes which results in a change to their bill, adjustments will be processed automatically by the Office of the Bursar. Students can contact the Office of the Bursar for information about when an adjustment will be generated
After the add/drop deadline, the below adjustment schedule goes into effect. Adjustments are automatic according to the schedule below.
Tuition and General Fee Adjustments
Full refunds for tuition and the general fee for a course are available only through the add/drop deadline for that course. After that, tuition and the general fee are adjusted only for term withdrawals according to the schedule below.
After the add/drop deadline, withdrawing from a single course does not generate any adjustment of tuition and fees, even if the student's enrollment changes from full-time to part-time. Refer to the Academic Calendar for course-specific deadlines. These percentages apply to the total tuition bill, not to partial tuition payments. Questions about this, as well as when students will receive their tuition adjustment, should be directed to the Office of the Bursar.
The following states how much of the tuition and general fees will be refunded based on when a course is dropped:
- From enrollment through the course add/drop deadline: 100%
- After the add/drop deadline: No adjustments for individual course drops
