Refund of Tuition


All students may withdraw from courses before the session begins with no tuition liability. 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. All tuition related fees are nonrefundable 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 22


May 23-26


May 27-29


May 30-June 2



Summer Session II

Refund Deadlines and Rules


Please review the Semester Planning Guide available at for all tuition and withdrawal deadlines.

Students enrolled in a course that is canceled by the University will be credited full tuition and applicable fees. 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.

Senior Citizen Tuition Discount


To encourage their participation and extend the benefits of its community service program, Hofstra offers a 50-percent tuition discount for senior citizens registered in credit courses on campus. 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.


Financial Aid


Federal Pell grants and loans are available to eligible students for the summer attending at least half- time. Some alternative loan programs are also available. Contact the Office of Financial Aid for more information.
