Withdrawal Refund Policy

A student dropping all courses should refer to the Academic Progress, Financial Aid, and Finance sections of the College Catalog prior to withdrawing from the college.

Students who withdraw or are expelled from the College within the first three weeks of the term may be entitled to a partial refund of tuition and fees. Tuition and fee refunds are only made upon the receipt of a completed official withdrawal form. Tuition and fees include tuition, SGA Fee, ITF Fee, course fees, dorm and meal plan fees.

Fall and Spring Withdrawal Refund Schedule

  • Withdrawals completed by the end of:
  • Week 1 - 80% refund of tuition and fees
  • Week 2 - 60% refund of tuition and fees
  • Week 3 - 40% refund of tuition and fees
  • Zero after week 3

Summer Withdrawal Refund Schedule

Withdrawals completed by the end of Week 1 – 50%; none thereafter.

A week is calculated from the first day of the term.

The official withdrawal date for federal financial aid recipients is the last date of class attendance as determined by federal regulations. Financial aid awards may be canceled or reduced for financial aid recipients who drop or withdraw from classes. The College highly recommends speaking to a Financial Aid Counselor prior to making the decision to drop or withdraw from classes.

Prior to the start of each academic year, students are given the option to purchase medical insurance from the Next Generation Insurance Program. For more information, contact a Tuition Refund Insurance Specialist at: (877) 445-0264.

In case of a call of military duty, the student's charges are prorated through the week of withdrawal.
