Refund Policies

The effective date of withdrawal is the date on which a completed official withdrawal form is received by the Office of the Law School Registrar; the percentage of credit will be determined by this date. The term begins on the first day of classes for that session, not the student’s first day of attendance. Refunds for students who have withdrawn are based on tuition only. Fees and deposits are non-refundable. If a student has been awarded financial aid, the financial aid programs from which the funds were disbursed will be refunded in accordance with the formula required by federal law. Tuition refunds are calculated as follows:

Fall & Spring Term Deducted From Account % You Owe
Up to the 8th day of term 100% 0%
9th day of term 90% 10%
10th day of term 50% 50%
No refunds after the 10th day of term 0% 100%

Summer Term % Deducted from Account % You Owe
Up to the 1st day of term 100% 0%
No refunds after 1st class day 0% 100%

Refund checks will be processed within 14 business days after credit appears on student accounts pursuant to the Federal Department of Education regulations. Refund checks will be directly deposited to students' checking or savings accounts. All law students are expected to enroll in the University's direct deposit program.

Refunds of room and board charges for resident students who withdraw (or are dismissed) from the law school are calculated by the Office of Campus Life. Unused portions of security deposits will be refunded upon the approval of the Housing Office.
