Please refer to the Bursar's web for semester payment due dates.

Tuition Refunds

A graduate student in good standing who formally withdraws before 60% of the semester has been completed during any semester will be eligible for a tuition refund.

The tuition refund for withdrawals or dropped courses is calculated on a daily basis. No refund for tuition can be made for courses or workshops with five class sessions or less after the first day of class. Additional penalties may apply to withdrawals from special programs or courses held at off-campus locations, such as Study Abroad or Geology Field Camp.

The date used to calculate refunds is based on when a properly authorized withdrawal or drop/add is received by the Registrar's Office.

Academic fees are non-refundable after the first day of classes.

In the event of a medical withdrawal certified by the Dean of Students, tuition will be refunded in proportion to the semester remaining.

Please refer to the Bursar's website for explicit and current information on refunds.
