Refund for Reduction in Hours

The last date to reduce hours for a tuition adjustment is the same as the last date to register or add a course (Census). This is the last date for Graduate students to change a course to Audit for possible tuition adjustment. Typically this is the 10th day of classes in Fall or Spring and 3rd day of classes for Summer sessions. Courses dropped/changed after this date are not eligible for a refund or credit.

The last day to drop a course with a refund or reduction in rates (Census Date) is:



Spring 2014January 17, 2014

Summer Session 1 2014, Three-week,
and Ten-Week SessionMay 21, 2014

Summer Session 2 2014June 30, 2014

Fall 2013September 4, 2013


After the last day to register/add/drop (Census), if a student is changing sections, dropping one class and adding a class of equal hours, or switching to a Co-op program, all transactions must be completed on the same date. If the changes are made on different days the system will NOT generate credits and may charge additional tuition and fees.

Undergraduates dropping below 12 hours may impact eligibility for financial aid, housing and health insurance. Graduate students should confer with their advisor for course load requirements or restrictions.

Financial Aid Recipients should talk to a Financial Aid Counselor before reducing hours to less than full time status. Students receiving funds awarded by the Office of Scholarships & Financial Aid should be aware of policies regarding change in status as they will likely result in an adjustment to your award and/or a required repayment of some or all of the funds disbursed to you.

DROPPING ALL THE COURSES FOR WHICH YOU ARE REGISTERED AFTER THE START OF THE SEMESTER REQUIRES OFFICIAL WITHDRAWAL FROM THE UNIVERSITY. (See Refund for Withdrawal)
