Important Information About Refunds

Credit Balances in eServices

Money in your eServices account is not automatically refunded to you. If you have a credit balance in your eServices account and you do not request a refund by the last day of instruction of the semester, then you forfeit that money.

Exceptions for Military Students

If you have to withdraw from classes for military purposes, then you will be refunded 100% of your fees and tuition. This is true even if you drop after the deadline or request your refund after the end of the semester.

How long will it take to get my refund?

Refunds are issued within six to eight weeks. If you paid by credit card, then a refund will be issued to the credit card you paid with. All other methods of payment will be refunded by check and mailed to the address on file with Admissions and Records.
