Change of Fees and Refunds

When appropriate, a change of fees will be processed by the Office of Registration & Records when a student submits a "Add/Drop/Registration Form" or "Withdrawal Form" which affects the fee previously assessed. Individuals are also advised to see "Change in Course Elections" in this Catalog.

Refunds of tuition, fees, or student account credit balances are generated automatically. After authentication and processing, the refund is issued to the student.
