Add/Drop Tuition Refunds
A student may receive full or partial credit for a course’s tuition charge if they complete the official add/drop or withdrawal process through the Registrar’s Office. Refunds for courses are calculated on the number of class meetings and are based on these percentages:
|Percentage of Class Meeting
||Percentage of Tuition Refund
|Before the first class meeting
|1% through 5%
|>5% through 10%
|>10% through 15%
|>15% through 25%
|Greater than 25% of class meetings
Tuition refunds are calculated based upon the following refund formula.
Refunds for courses lasting at least one week but less than two weeks may be dropped before the end of the first class day for a 100% refund.
Any refund for a course with a "TBA" time slot, such as Internet, Doctoral, Practicum, or Internship, will be calculated as if the course met weekly beginning on the first day of the term.
Students are subject to a $40.00 fee each time a course is dropped. There is no charge to add a course.
Refunds of Credit Balances
Refunds due to overpayment of the student account or the dropping/withdrawal of courses can be requested through the Cashier’s Office at 214-333-5336.
Refunds resulting from the posting of financial aid will be requested automatically and forwarded to the student's address in the University system. To expedite receiving your refund check, be sure your address is correctly updated with the Registrar's Office.
All refunds are mailed.
|Tuition Refund Formula
|The following process is used to calculate the refund of tuition:
1. The number of classes that have already met in a semester is divided by the total number of classes contained in that semester.
2. This number is the percentage used to calculate the amount of tuition to be refunded.
FORMULA: # of classes met / # of total contained in the semester = % of the course completed.
EXAMPLE: 2/16=12.5%. 12.5% according to the refund policy equates to a 70% tuition refund.
