Paid Housing Costs (less the non-refundable $ 1,000 Housing Deposit) may be fully refunded when written notification of withdrawal from the Housing Program is received BEFORE the payment deadline corresponding to the term for which housing was requested, as indicated on the Housing Request Form. After that date, and before occupying the accommodations, Housing Costs (less the non-refundable Housing Deposit) may be refunded 50%. After the housing unit has been occupied, no refund is possible.

Withdrawal Policy
Students who must withdraw from a course during a semester for reasons of extended illness or family emergency may receive a refund according to the above refund scale, provided the withdrawal is officially approved by the Dean. A student may be advised to withdraw from a course for academic reasons. No refunds are made in that case.

Students are financially responsible for courses for which they are registered after the last day of the drop/add period.

No refunds will be made in the case of unofficial withdrawal or dismissal from the University.

Good Financial Standing
Students will be considered to be in good financial standing at the end of each term when all accounts are cleared with the Business Manager, the Housing Office and the Library. Students not in good financial standing will not be issued grades or transcripts and may be refused re-enrollment at the University.
