Refund for Reduction of Course Load
A student who elects to drop a course for which he has registered and paid fees shall receive a refund of fees only if notice is given to the Office of the Registrar on or before the last day to make course changes as indicated in the university calendar. The student shall then be charged at the per semester hour rate applicable to the remaining number of semester hours for which he is registered.
Please note: If reduction of course load eliminates all hours for that semester, formal withdrawal is necessary. See below.
THE FOLLOWING REGULATIONS APPLY TO THE REGULAR FEES WHEN FORMAL WITHDRAWAL IS APPROVED (Section 704.04 Board of Regents Policy Manual):
Refund for Formal Withdrawal for Tuition, Fees, Student Housing and Food Services
The refund amount for students withdrawing from the institution shall be based on a pro rata percentage determined by dividing the number of calendar days in the semester that the student completed by the total calendar days in the semester. The total calendar days in a semester includes weekends, but excludes scheduled breaks of five or more days and days that a student was on a approved leave of absence. The unearned portion shall be refunded up to the point in time that the amount equals 60 percent.
Students who withdraw from the institution when the calculated percentage of completion is greater than 60 percent, are not entitled to a refund of any portion of institutional charges.
A refund of tuition and other mandatory fees shall be made in the event of the death of a student at any time during the academic session.
Students who formally withdraw from the institution after the first 50 percent (in time) of the period of enrollment are not entitled to a refund of any portion of tuition and fees.
**Please note: This refund policy is for students who formally withdraw. This refund policy does not affect the drop/add period or current refund policy for dropped courses during this period.
Because of the specific nature of the instruction of Applied Music courses, lab fees and workshops, no refunds of these funds will be made.
