Refund Policy for Credit Coursework
Students enrolled in for credit courses and programs offered through the College of Extended Studies and International Programs (CESIP), including Open University, are entitled to a refund when they follow the campus-established procedures to drop classes or withdraw from program as outlined below.
Students must drop courses or withdraw from a program before the first day of classes to receive a 100% refund of registration fees less a $10.00 administrative fee. A signed Course/Program Withdrawal and Request for Refund Form dated before the first day of class must be submitted to (CESIP) Welcome Center, University Student Union, Room 105 in order to obtain a refund.
Students who drop a course or withdraw from a program after the start of quarter will receive a pro-rata refund of registration fees. The pro-rata refund is based on the date on which the Course/Program Withdrawal and Request for Refund Form is received in the College office.
Students who withdraw after the seventh week of the quarter will not be eligible to receive a refund of registration fees and will be responsible for 100% of fees for the term.
A $10.00 administrative fee will be withheld from all refunds unless withdrawal is the result of a campus regulation, compulsory military service, disability, death of the student or class cancellation by the College of Extended Studies and International Programs (CESIP).
Refund checks will be mailed to the address noted on the Course/Program Withdrawal and Request for Refund Form. The refund checks are mailed approximately four to six weeks after the request is received by the College. See Open University Registration Form for refund deadline dates.
