If you should find it necessary to discontinue or withdraw from the university, you must provide notice to the Registrar’s Office of intent to withdraw by means of the Exit Form. Notice must be made in writing and students must return any University property: i.e., ID Badge, library books and equipment, etc. Once you begin classes, if you should withdraw without notice, your withdrawal date will be your last date of attendance. If a student is absent fourteen (14) consecutive calendar days without notice, he/she may be considered withdrawn from the program.
Students who withdraw from all classes on or after the start of the term, as well as students who withdraw from the University after the Add/Drop period will be subject to a pro-rata refund of institutional charges. The calculation will be based on the student’s last date of attendance, up to the 60% completion point in the term. Institutional charges include tuition, the campus fee, and the housing fee as shown in the Tuition and Fees section. Students who withdraw after the 60% completion point in the term are not eligible for a refund. For example, the 55th percentile point will be equivalent to a 45% refund of tuition charges.
Students receiving DoD Tuition Assistance (TA) who withdraw from the University after the Add/Drop period will be subject to a pro-rata return of unearned TA funds, based on the last day of attendance, up to the 60% completion point in the term. Students who withdraw after the 60% completion point in the term are not eligible for a refund or return of TA funds.
Institutional scholarship recipients who withdraw from the university are subject to a pro-rata charge for any unearned portion of the scholarship using the same percentage calculation as defined above for institutional charges.
State Grant recipients who withdraw from the university are subject to a pro-rata return of funds using the same calculation as defined in the Return of Title IV section and in accordance with the California Student Aid Commission.
Veteran Benefit recipients who withdraw from the university, unless requested by Veterans Affairs, will not be subject to a return of Veteran Benefits. Any Veteran Benefit received in excess of earned Institutional Charges and all other final adjustments will be refunded to the student.
If a student’s payments by way of cash, checks, credit card(s), financial aid, agencies, or other methods exceeds the amount the school may retain based upon the refund policy, a refund for this difference shall first be paid to the sponsoring agency, as required, prior to a student receiving these monies. With written permission from the student, refunds may be returned to the loan programs to reduce the student’s loan debt. If monies applied to a student’s account are less than the amount the school may retain, the student must make arrangements with the school to pay this difference. Other Charges and Fees listed in the Tuition Pricing Schedule may be non-refundable. Any balance remaining on account after the refund calculations have been applied must be paid by student.
Return of unearned funds and/or refunds owed to agencies, private loans, scholarships, and to the student will be paid within 30 days of the date of determination of withdrawal. Notification will be sent to withdrawn students of all returns of funds.
