Institutional Tuition and Fees Adjustment Schedule by Daily Proration

The daily proration adjustment schedule governs how tuition and fees will be adjusted on a percentage basis determined by the day on which the student withdraws from the University. This schedule currently applies only to students in the School of Law and the School of Medicine. All other students at the University follow the Weekly Proration Schedule. Students enrolled in nonstandard programs follow separate adjustment schedules (see specific program for details).

  • An enrolled student who withdraws or voluntarily takes a leave from the University on or after the first (1st) day of classes and through the seventh (7th) day of the term (first week) will receive a 100 percent tuition and fee adjustment.
  • An enrolled student who withdraws or voluntarily takes leave on or after the eighth (8th) day of the term but before the date when they will have completed 60 percent of the term will have their institutional charges adjusted based on a daily proration.
  • Percent of term completed is calculated as the total number of calendar days completed divided by the total number of calendar days from the start to the end of the semester (term). There are no adjustments for holidays or breaks.
  • If a student withdraws after completing 60 percent of the term, the student will receive a zero percent adjustment (i.e., will be charged 100 percent of tuition and fees).
  • The effective date of withdrawal is determined by the school in which the student is enrolled, and the official withdrawal is recorded within the Student Information System.
  • Any resulting credit due to a student because of a withdrawal will first be offset against any other amounts owed to the University.

The daily proration schedule of tuition and required fees between amounts charged and amounts adjusted is as follows:
