Refund of Tuition

All pre-registered students may withdraw from courses before classes begin. Should you wish to withdraw from the University during a session, you must first fill out the appropriate forms at the Office of Student Accounts and complete the withdrawal by the last day of classes.

Refunds will be calculated on the basis of the date of application for withdrawal or reduction in total semester hours due to program change. The University fee ($78) is not refundable except in cases where the University has canceled a student’s course(s).

Please be aware that you are responsible to formally notify the University of any plans to drop or withdraw from courses and will be held responsible for all billings regardless of class attendance. Note: Non-attendance of classes does not constitute an official withdrawal, and does not relieve the student of his or her financial obligation, or entitle the student to a refund.

The University will remit tuition charges as follows:

Summer Session I

May 30  
May 31-June 5  
June 6-11  
June 12-15

Refund Deadlines and Rules

There are no tuition refunds on withdrawals that are made after June 15 for Session I, July 25 for Session II and August 16 for Session III. As of May 31 for Summer Session I, July 10 for summer Session II and August 13 for Summer Session III, a grade of â¬ÜW⬔ will be assigned for all course withdrawals. Courses with a grade of â¬ÜW⬔ are included in the calculation of semester/session tuition and fee charges.

Students enrolled in a course that is canceled by the University must contact the Office of Student Accounts before any applicable refund of tuition and other fees can be processed. The number of classes attended has no bearing on the amount of refund given.

The date the withdrawal application is received by the Office of Student Accounts, in person or by mail, determines the amount of the refund remitted in accordance with the above tuition remission schedule. Telephone calls are not acceptable.

To be eligible for this discount, a registrant must be at least 60 years of age. The age qualification is to be verified by presentation, at registration, of a Senior Citizen’s Identification Card issued by the Nassau County Department of Senior Citizen Affairs or a town, city, or village Office for the Aging. All students must pay applicable fees.
