Refund and Drop Schedule

Fee Obligation

Once a student has completed registration, an obligation to pay fees is in effect until such time as that obligation may be reduced by an official withdrawal filed with the Registrar's Office or reduction of the credit load.  If a student is withdrawn for nonpayment of fees and tuition, or withdraws voluntarily with unpaid fees, an obligation to pay fees remains in effect. Non-attendance of classes does not constitute an official withdrawal.

***To determine your refund, start with the "Class Start Date" and count as zero. Continue counting days to the date of the drop and you will receive the tuition refund listed in that day range. If withdrawing from all classes, you will receive the withdraw fee listed.***

To DROP one or more classes, but remain enrolled in other classes for a semester; refer to the Tuition & Fee Refund percentage above.

To WITHDRAW you are dropping ALL classes in a semester. For example; taking 12+ week courses and withdrawing in week 1, you will have a 100% tuition refund and a $50 withdrawal penalty. In week 2, again 100% of tuition is refunded, with a $100 withdrawal penalty. In week 3 & 4, you will receive a refund of 50% (owing 50%) with no withdrawal penalty. By week 5 there is no refund, all tuition and fees are due.

WITHDRAWAL for summer, would mean dropping ALL classes in ALL sessions.

NOTE: Non-attendance of class or classes does not have any effect upon fee obligations! An official drop or withdrawal is the only way to alter fee obligations.  Please contact the Registrar Office at (920) 465-2111 if you have questions regarding dropping of a class or withdrawing.

Financial Aid Refund checks can be picked up at the Cashier Window of the Bursar's Office in room 1300 of the Student Services Building on or after the first day of classes. If you are signed up for Electronic Refunding, the refund money should be in your bank account two business days after you see it posted to your SIS account.

Refunds resulting from personal check payments will be held for 14 business days from the date of the payment. A ten (10) day hold, from the date of the payment, will be put on any refund from e-check payments.
