Refund Guidelines

If you drop one or more classes during the refund period, your fees will be recalculated based on your liable credit hours. If your recalculated total liable credit hours are in the banded tuition rate, no refund is calculated.

For more information about banded tuition and how refund amounts are calculated contact the Bursar’s Office.
