Urbana Refund Policy

Refunds Due to Withdrawal

Students who officially withdraw from the University or withdraw from class(es), may be eligible for a refund based on a graduating scale relative to the timing of the withdrawal and in compliance with state and federal regulations. In compliance with Section 668.22 of the Code of Federal Regulations, current students who prepay all tuition and fees and subsequently withdraw will receive a refund percentage of their tuition based on the date that the official withdrawal form is submitted. Any refund will be issued no later than 30 calendar days after submission and receipt of the official withdrawal notice. Students should check their account online using Self Service via to check the status of their account and refund. 

All students who received financial aid may contact the Financial Aid office regarding aid adjustments. State, Federal and Institutional aid may be reduced or removed from a student’s account if the student withdraws partially or completely from the University. In addition, students who received Title IV Federal aid and completely or partially withdraw during the semester before completing at least 60% of the payment period may be subject to a Federal Return to Title IV Calculation. This calculation determines the student’s earned and unearned Title IV Federal aid. This process may take up to 30 days to complete, from the date the University was notified of the withdrawal. Unearned aid will be returned to the appropriate programs. Any credit balance of earned aid will be refunded to the student within 14 days from the date the calculation is complete. Please contact the Financial Aid office for more information. 

Refunds will be mailed to the official address of record. It is therefore in the student’s best interest to ensure that their current address is on file with the Office of the Registrar.
