Sometimes students find it necessary to drop a course or withdraw from school. Tuition and fee refunds are pro-rated based upon the point in the semester at which you drop the course. Students should never simply stop attending as that will result in failing grades in your courses which may make it extremely difficult to ever receive financial aid again should your situation change and you want reinstatement. Visit our Refunds, Drops and Withdrawals page for more information.

Students may need to spread out the cost of tuition over several payments. The Business Office can help you set up a payment plan for the semester.
