No refunds of any fees are made in the event that a student withdraws from the program after registration, except as specified below. In no event is the deposit or housing payment refundable. In all cases, the student must submit to the Graduate Committee an official notice of intention to withdraw. The date of receipt of such a notice determines the amount of the refund. Students who officially withdraw before the first day of classes (start of workshops) for the term in question are given a full refund, minus the nonrefundable deposit

If official withdrawal from the program occurs in the first week of classes or workshops, 75 percent of tuition is refunded; within the second week, 60 percent; within the third or fourth week, 30 percent. After four weeks, no refunds are given. Fees for registration, student health insurance, and facilities are nonrefundable.
If a student who is receiving financial aid withdraws from the program, their award or loan is prorated. Institutional fellowships are reduced by the same percentage as indicated in the tuition refund schedule above. Federal Direct Loans are calculated according to the federal refund policy on the amount of the loan to be returned to the lender. A student who is considering withdrawal may wish to confer with the Student Accounts Office and Financial Aid Office concerning any anticipated refund and the amount of the Federal Direct loan that the College must return to the lender. This amount has a direct bearing on the amount of the refund, if any, that the College will provide the student.
No refund is made in cases of suspension or expulsion.
