Refund and Withdrawal Policies

Assumption's undergraduate and graduate withdrawal policies.

Undergraduate Tuition Refund/Withdrawal Policy

This policy applies to withdrawing from the University and not from withdrawing from a single course.  No consideration will be given to applications for refunds unless the student has filed an official withdrawal notice with the Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs. To obtain a withdrawal form please email Dr. Eloise Knowlton.  The date of withdrawal is the last day of attendance. No amount paid is returnable upon a student’s voluntary withdrawal from the University as a matter of right. Also, no refund is made for delay in attending class at the beginning of a term or for withdrawal or dismissal beyond the eighth week of a semester.

Refunds made on tuition will be made in accordance with the following schedule:

  1. Tuition—100% refund if withdrawal is on or before the first day of classes;

  2. Tuition—90% refund if withdrawal is after the first day of the week that classes begin and before the end of the second week of the semester;

  3. Tuition—50% refund if withdrawal is on the first day of the third week of the semester and before the end of the fourth week of the semester;

  4. Tuition—25% refund if withdrawal is on the first day of the fifth week of the semester and before the end of the eighth week of the semester.

  • Refunds on board charges will be calculated on a daily pro-rata basis.

  • Refunds on room charges will be calculated on a daily pro-rata basis.

No refunds are granted on fees at any time.  Refund checks are issued by Student Accounts once a week and mailed to the student’s address on record with the Registrars’ office.  Any refunds due to the student will first be offset against any other amounts owed to the University.

Graduate Refund and Withdrawal Policies

No consideration will be given to an application for a refund unless the student has given notice to the Program Director at the time of withdrawal from a course. The “date of withdrawal” is the date on which the student actually notified the director. No fee paid, or any portion thereof, is returnable as a matter of right upon a student’s withdrawal from the University. Where illness, physical disability or extraordinary circumstances require a student to leave, he/she may file a written request stating the cause(s) of the withdrawal with the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies.

Refunds on tuition will be made according to the following schedule:

For regularly scheduled courses whether online, blended or on campus.

  • Withdrawal prior to the end of the 1st week of the semester ...............100%
  • Withdrawal prior to the end of the 2nd week of the semester  ...............90%
