Tuition Refund Insurance

An optional insurance program is available to help refund student tuition, fees, and room/board charges, up to the annual policy limits, if you unable to complete the semester. This insurance program complements and enhances our school's refund policy and we believe families will benefit from this added protection. Visit GradGuard for additional information.

The medical insurance premium will be refunded in full if appropriate documentation for a waiver is submitted to the Health Center prior to the end of the second week of classes. No refund of the medical insurance premium will be made after the second week of classes; however, the student will be covered for the remainder of that coverage period.

Tuition Refund for Dropping a Class

Fall and Spring Semesters: For a class dropped by Friday of the first week, the tuition will be recalculated based on the new class load. There is no refund for classes dropped after this day. Course fees will be refunded in full if a course is cancelled by the University.
