Refund/Liability Schedule

Tuition refunds are based on the date the student officially drops a class or classes. Students who officially drop classes before the beginning of the semester are refunded their tuition and fees in full. Students who drop after the semester has started are billed in accordance with the published liability schedule for that semester. Activity fees are not refundable after the semester has begun. These dates are included in each semester's Bursar Information Letter.

Swapping is the dropping of one course and the adding of another course of the same number of credits, and cost, within a seven day period during the percentage liability period. This function allows for the student to drop/add during the liability period without incurring a percentage liability. Only an $18 change of program fee will be incurred.


A cautionary note:

Summer session – There are four sub sessions in Summer Session (4W1, 6W1, 4W2, 6W2). Swapping courses without a percentage liability will only be recognized when both classes are in the same sub session.
