Housing Refunds

These refunds are pro-rated based on the number of days of occupancy. The occupancy start date is the day housing opens to an individual each semester. The end date is the later of the date at which the student notifies the University of their withdrawal or the date belongings have been removed AND the key returned to the Office of Residential Life as outlined in the Housing Contract. No refunds will be granted after September 29 for the fall semester and February 19 for the spring semester. Students subject to involuntary withdrawals are not eligible for a housing refund.

Dining Refunds

These refunds are pro-rated up to the value remaining in the semester in which the withdrawal occurs. Dining plans are deactivated based on the withdrawal date recorded by the Registrar. No refunds will be granted after November 30 for the fall semester and April 30 for the spring semester.

Refund of Credit Balances

Requests for student account credit balance withdrawals must be submitted online by the student by completing the request form found here. Refunds to Non U.S. Citizens may be subject to NRA federal income tax withholding.  Scholarship payments directly to non-resident aliens, including refunds of a student account credit balance, must always be treated as non-qualified scholarships, and are therefore reportable and require withholding, unless a treaty or code exemption applies.  

Non-Resident Study Refunds

Refer to the Non-Resident Study Agreement and Disclosure which is signed by the student prior to study abroad with the Office of Study Abroad.
