  • *Refund - a credit entered on a student's account to reduce the amount of charges.
  • *Drop - refers to cancellation of registration for individual classes.
  • *Withdrawal - refers to cancellation of registration to all classes for a specific term.


Students who withdraw from the University must file a withdrawal form with Academic Advisor. Such formal notice will establish the withdrawal date. If a student withdraws without notification, Judson University will determine a withdrawal date. Refunds will be granted per the following schedule:


  • If the drop occurs before the begin date of the dropped class, the cost of the dropped class will be refunded at an effective hourly rate from the program and assumes the student has returned all Educational Resources in an "Unused/New" condition.
  • Dropped classes may be rescheduled at future date and will be billed at an effective hourly rate.
  • The effective hourly rate for the program is the calculated rate using the total billable amount divided by the total number of hours in the CMHC program.

If the drop occurs after the beginning date of the dropped class (see exception below), the refund will be calculated based upon the following schedule:

  • After 1 night of class = 75% Refund of cost of this class
  • After 2 night of class = 50% Refund of cost of this class
  • After 3 night of class + 25% Refund of cost of this class
  • After 4 or more nights of class = 0% Refund for cost of this class
  • EXCEPTION: There is no refund for the first course in the CMHC program if it is dropped after is has started.

The cost of the class is calculated using the effective hourly rate as described above.


If the withdrawal occurs before the beginning of the billing period, there will be no cost for that period. If the withdrawal occurs after the beginning date of the first class of the billing period, the refund will be calculated according to the DROPPING A CLASS process.

A Term consists of multiple courses with the same registration date, taught in consecutive order. Tuition refunds will be calculated on the Term charge only, there will be no per class or hourly rate refund. There will be no refund for an individual course that is dropped.
