Holds & Student Billing Policies

Our student policies help keep you on track with maintaining your financial obligations to make sure you're able to continue to enroll in classes and graduate on time.


When payments have not been received by the appropriate due date, a hold will be placed on your account.


Students who withdraw from classes during the term may be eligible for a refund. There are two types of refunds: billing refunds (tuition, fees) and financial aid refunds. A billing refund credits funds to the student's account, thereby decreasing the amount that is owed on the student account. A financial aid refund reduces the amount of aid available to pay the billing charges, thereby increasing the amount that is owed on the student's account.

Changes to registration can be made using the Self Service Banner. Students are encouraged to contact their academic or Student Success advisor prior to making any changes. Students who have received, or anticipate receiving, Financial Aid should also contact their financial aid counselor.

Billing Refunds:

  • Full Refund: Students are entitled to a 100% refund of tuition and fees if they drop a course during the add-drop period.
  • Pro-Rata Refund: Students who withdraw from a course after the add-drop period receive a pro-rata refund of tuition up to and including 50% of the enrollment period. The percentage of tuition refunded on the student’s account is equal to the percentage of the period of enrollment which was completed. Fees are not refunded after the add-drop period.
  • No Refund: While students are able to withdraw from courses through the full withdrawal period no tuition or fee refunds will be issued once 50% of a course has been completed.
