Institutional Tuition and Fees Adjustment Schedule by Weekly Proration

The weekly proration adjustment schedule governs how tuition and fees will be adjusted on a percentage basis determined by the school week during which the student withdraws from the University. Other units, such as Housing and Dining, will have their own schedule for determining refunds, and you should consult with those units separately. Follow this link for Housing's current policy. Students seeking a refund of dining charges paid should start by completing the Dining Plan Change Request Form.

 

The weekly proration schedule currently applies to undergraduate and graduate students at the University except students in the School of Law and the School of Medicine, who follow the Daily Proration Schedule or students enrolled in Nonstandard programs, which 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 second week of the term will receive 100 percent tuition and fee adjustment. The last day of the second week of classes for fall 2021 is September 6th.
  • A standard semester (term) school week is defined as seven (7) calendar days.
  • The first school week begins the first day of the start of the semester (term) period.
  • 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 weekly schedule of tuition and required fees indicating the amounts a student is/is not responsible for for academic year 2021-2022, based upon when the student's withdrawal is dated, is as follows:
