The refund tables outline the percentage at certain dates during the academic year at which credit is calculated for full withdrawal from the University or for a course drop by a part-time student. The actual amount of refund will depend on the amount of fees actually paid. The refund schedule assumes that all fees are paid. Student Association and Organization Fees are not refundable by the University.
