Refund Policies

In order to be eligible for a refund of tuition and mandatory fees (if applicable), students must drop or withdraw from courses by the specified Refund Deadline. Tuition will be automatically recalculated or reversed during this time when:

  • In-state students drop below 7 units, OR
  • Out-of-state students drop below 12 units

Tuition and fees will not be recalculated or reversed after the refund deadline. Students are responsible for all tuition and fees remaining on their account.

Tuition recalculation may result in a credit balance on the student's account. The credit balance will be applied to any encumbrances owed to the University first before being sent to the student.

Per our credit card merchant agreement, if you made a credit or debit card payment within the past 60 days, the card will be refunded first. Remaining credit balances that exceed the original credit/debit card payment(s) will be sent directly to the student.

Financial Aid Recipients:

Consult the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid regarding rules and regulations pertaining to ANY award if you plan to drop units.

Complete Withdrawal

During a Fall or Spring semester, if you decide to drop all of your classes and leave the University after the 4th week of the semester, complete and submit the Complete Withdrawal form.

Students who withdraw from the University on or before the Refund Deadline will receive a full refund of tuition and mandatory fees.

Financial Aid Recipients:

Refer to the Financial Aid Withdrawal Policy to understand how a complete withdrawal will affect your financial aid.

Changing Registration After the Refund Deadline

If you are adding and dropping courses after the Refund Deadline, do both transactions at the same time on the same Change of Schedule form. Processing the transactions at different times could cause an increase in fees and/or late charges, which you may be responsible for.
