Tuition & Fee Refund Schedule

If a student formally drops one or more courses through the Office of the Registrar, the university will refund applicable tuition and fees collected for courses from which a student drops within the first 12 days of a fall, spring or summer session of 10 weeks or longer and within the first four days of a summer term, provided the student remains enrolled at the institution for that semester or term. Refunds for courses dropped by a student who later in the semester or term withdraws from the institution will be calculated according to the following schedule:

Fall 2017

Partial Withdrawals

  • From registration through September 11, 2017 (Census Date):  100%
  • After September 11, 2017 (Census Date):  No refund

 

Complete Withdrawals

  • Prior to August 28, 2017 :  100%
  • From August 28 through September 1:  80%
  • From September 2 through September 8:  70%
  • From September 9 through September 14:  50%
  • From September 15 through September 20: 25%
  • After September 21:  No refund

 

For refunds, the effective date of withdrawal will be the date when the withdrawal is officially completed and recorded by the registrar's Office. If the university cancels a scheduled course of instruction, all fees will be refunded. No refunds will be made unless applied for in the same school year as withdrawal. Immediate refund will not be made to students who withdraw during the refund period. Normally, a refund will be made within 30 days from the last day of scheduled refunds to the student's chosen refund preference (direct deposit, check or P2 card).

All policies regarding the payment or refunding of tuition, fees and charges comply with applicable statutes and are approved by the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System. If a person desires clarification of any matter relating to payment or refund of such charges, or believes special circumstances warrant exceptions to the published policy, the Office of Business Affairs at UT Tyler should be contacted.
