Concordia University’s Tuition Assessment Policy is based on the term in which classes occur, not on the actual dates of individual classes. Because many classes do not meet regularly throughout an entire term, it is important for students to know which term their classes are in so that they know when tuition is due. Tuition is due on the first day of the term.
Tuition and course fee refunds are processed based upon the length of each course and the date upon which the course is withdrawn. Refunds follow the below schedule:
The date utilized in the above calculations is the date on which the student submits a completed copy of the official withdraw request form.
Financial Aid Implications
For students who withdraw from all courses in any given term:
- If withdrawal from all courses within a given term occurs prior to the 60% completion time of the term, financial aid will be pro-rated according to the federal Return of Title IV Funds policy. Courses withdrawn during this period may have a transcript record.
- If withdrawal from all courses within a given term occurs after the 60% completion time of the term, there will be no adjustment for financial aid, unless late withdrawal has been approved by the Dean of Students for medical reasons, death of an immediate family member, or required military service. Courses withdrawn during this period may have a transcript record.
- To begin the process of withdrawing from all courses within a given term, a student must contact the Registrar's Office or an academic advisor.
For students who withdraw from one or more courses but remain enrolled in other courses in any given term:
- If, due to a withdrawal, a student’s course load disqualifies them for all or part of previously awarded financial aid, that portion of financial aid may be returned to its payment source (federal student loan, financial aid, personal resources, etc.).
NOTE: The tuition refund schedule above will be followed for each course withdrawn, which may result in a balance due to Concordia.
