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 assigned so they know when a tuition refund is available.
All withdrawals have an effect on a studentâ€™s financial aid eligibility. Please check with the Financial Aid office for more details pertinent to the individual situation.
For students who withdraw from all courses in any given term:
- If student withdraws (cancels registration) from all courses within a given term occurs prior to the second Friday of the term, no tuition will be assessed, no financial aid will be disbursed, and there will be no transcript record of the course(s).
- If withdrawal from all courses within a given term occurs after the second Friday of the term, but prior to the 60% completion time of the term, both tuition and financial aid will be pro-rated according to the federal Return of Title IV Funds policy as listed in the university catalog. Any tuition refund is allocated pro-rata to its payment source (federal student loan, financial aid, personal resources, etc.). Courses withdrawn during this period may have a transcript record.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 either tuition or 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 Courses withdrawn during this period may have a transcript record.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 Graduate Program Director.
For students who withdraw from one or more courses but remain enrolled in other courses in any given term:
- The last day and time to withdraw from a specific course(s) is 4:30 pm on the last business day prior to the first day of class. Tuition will be refunded at 100%, and there will be no transcript record of the course.
- 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 will be returned to its payment source (federal student loan, financial aid, personal resources, etc.).
- Additional tuition will be assessed if subsequent registration increases the total number of credits.
Refer to the published Academic Calendar for Tuition Assessment dates for Standard Summer, Fall, and Spring terms. Students enrolled in the BS-BUS or MBA programs should contact Student Accounts for Tuition Assessment dates for their terms.
