All other fees are non-refundable. Refunds will be based on the total charge incurred by the student at the time of withdrawal or leave, not the amount the student has actually paid. Students must complete a Student Withdrawal Form or Leave of Absence Form and submit it to the Registrar’s office. The effective date is the date that the student files the form. Refunds will be made within 30 calendar days of the notification of an official withdrawal or leave of absence.
