Reduction of Tuition (Refund Policy)
A student who voluntarily withdraws from all courses during the first six weeks of a term will receive a partial reduction of tuition and fees (campus, school, and computer) according to the week of withdrawal as follows:
- First to second week: 80 %
- Third to fourth week: 60%
- Fifth to sixth week: 40%
For reductions in Housing and Dining charges, the student must apply directly with the Housing Office to return their room key and with the Dining Office to return their RU Express Card, before any reductions in room and board charges can be processed.
No reduction is granted after the sixth week. The effective date of withdrawal is the date on which a written statement of withdrawal is received by the registrar.
There will be no reduction of tuition charges after the add/drop period, to students who withdraw from one or more courses, but remain registered in other classes. There will be no adjustment made in charges if a student falls from Full-time credits to a part-time credit hour load after the add/drop period. A student cannot completely withdraw from all courses by using the touchtone telephone or web registration system. The student must file with and have approved a written withdrawal with the University Registrar. Failure to attend class is not a withdrawal and students will not receive adjustment of charges if they do not attend class.
