Refunds/Cancellation Fees

If the schedule change reduces a student's credit hours below full-time to part-time levels, or the credit hours are reduced from above 18 hours to below 18 hours, a credit may be appropriate.

Housing Cancellations:

Application and Advanced Housing Payment

Housing Fees
Per 12.c. of the Housing License Agreement, if a resident withdraws from the University and remains withdrawn for the full 2015-2016 academic term, and checks out properly, the resident will be charged housing fees based on the dates of his or her occupancy plus a license agreement release fee of $400. If a resident withdraws during the fall term and gains re-admittance and is registered for classes during the spring term, this agreement remains in effect and the resident will be charged full housing fees as applicable. A new assignment will be issued based on availability at the time of re-admittance.

 

Meal Plan Cancellations:

A residential meal plan is required for all first-and second-year students living on campus during Fall and Spring semesters.  Residential meal plans may be changed during the first two weeks of the semester.  If a student voluntarily withdraws, he/she will incur a $50 cancellation fee and will be charged, on a prorated basis, according to the number of days from the start of the semester to the date of cancellation plus any used dining dollars (if applicable).

Commuter meal plans may be changed or cancelled within the first two weeks of activation.  Upon cancellation, a student will incur a $50 cancellation fee and will be charged, on a prorated basis, according to the number of meal swipes used plus any used dining dollars.  There are no refunds after first two weeks of activation. Refunds are only available for the first meal plan purchased during the semester.

Unused meal plan balances or dining dollars are not transferrable to another student, faculty or staff member. All meal plans expire at the end of each semester.
