Refunds / Withdrawal
The Institute refunds in full tuition for classes dropped by the last day of the Drop/Add period. There is no refund of tuition for individual courses dropped after the last day of the Drop/Add period. The Drop/Add period is the first week (5 business days) of the term.
Refunds for Withdrawing from Registration:
Withdrawal is defined as the dropping of one’s entire program in a given term as differentiated from dropping some, but not all, of one’s courses. Students who withdraw from a term are charged a $75 withdrawal fee and tuition and fees are charged according to a schedule set by the Registrars’ Office. Application fees, late fees, and research fees are not refundable.
|Week 1||Through the end of the drop/add period: 100% tuition and fees|
|Week 2||90% tuition refunded, no fees refunded|
|Week 3||80% tuition refunded, no fees refunded|
|Week 4||70% tuition refunded, no fees refunded|
|Week 5||60% tuition refunded, no fees refunded|
|Week 6||50% tuition refunded, no fees refunded|
|Week 7||40% tuition refunded, no fees refunded|

A student is considered registered until the date on which written notice of withdrawal is received by the Office of the Dean.
Terms of Payment
When there are credit balances on student accounts due to over payment of Institutional charges, students may request a refund of the balance.
If there is a debit balance after calculation of all anticipated charges and payments, students should make payments for the balances by the appropriate deadline (3RD week of term). Payments must be completed online through the payment portal. After the payment due date is past, a one-time late payment charge ($150) and late payment fees (1% per month) may be assessed on the unpaid balance.
Fellowships and loan proceeds are credited to student accounts following the registration period. Late payment charges or late fees may be assessed on remaining charges not covered by fellowship or financial aid.
The Bursars’ office has automated the process of issuing refund checks. All credit balances generated by financial aid will be automatically issued and mailed to your preferred address in the Registrar’s system. Please make sure your address is correct with the Office of the Registrar to ensure you receive your checks. Refunds are disbursed within 14 calendar days from when the credit balance has been created or 14 calendar days from the start of the term whichever date is later.
Note: If a credit card payment was made to your account within 90 calendar days of the refund date, funds will be issued to the credit card first. Any additional credit that remains will then be issued to you. The refund of a credit balance is not intended as a final accounting of all charges incurred on your account.
