Refunds & Withdrawals

Have a credit balance on your student account?  Making a change to your enrollment?

Refunds
Refunds on a student account can be made only if the account has an actual credit balance. Refunds will not be issued on credits created by “expected" financial aid. The online refund request form (myOxy, Student Services tab) must be submitted by Wednesday at 8 a.m. to receive the refund by Friday after 1 p.m.

If your credit balance results from Federal Title IV programs (Direct Loans, Perkins, Pell Grants and SEO Grants) as defined by the U.S. Department of Education, the refund will be issued automatically to the student. If the refund is created by a PLUS Loan, the refund will go to the parent obtaining the loan, unless we receive written authorization from the parent to issue the check to you.

Withdrawal Policy
Students who withdraw during the semester may be eligible for refunds, depending upon the time of the withdrawal. Students must give written notification to the Registrar of their decision to withdraw and complete all withdrawal procedures in order to be eligible for any refunds.

 **Room charges are prorated on the Tuition withdrawal schedule.  Board charges will be prorated based on usage. No adjustment will be made to Student Body and Sickness Insurance fees. No adjustment except for board will be made to a student who is suspended, dismissed, expelled, or asked to leave the College for any reason. Student financial aid will be prorated according to published guidelines and government regulations.

Status Change from Full-Time to Part-Time
The College refund policy for students dropping from full-time status to part-time status is effective only for the first five weeks of the semester. Students who register at the beginning of the term as full-time and elect to drop to part-time status will be billed on a per unit basis (eleven or fewer units). After the 26th day of classes, no adjustment will be made and the student will be billed at the regular full-time rate. 

To be considered part-time, a student must petition to the Registrar’s office and be approved. Attending eleven or fewer units without an approved petition from the Registrar does not constitute part-time status and the student will be subject to full-time tuition and fees. Any status change that results in a credit, partial or otherwise, of tuition, room, board and fee charges may affect your financial aid award. Such a change could result in a balance on your student account that would be due and payable.
