Class Drops and Withdrawals

A student who drops a course or withdraws from the university within a certain time period may be entitled to a partial refund of tuition and fees. These refunds are calculated according to the category and time schedule listed below. Delinquent payment fees, late registration charges, publication fees, and installment handling fees are non-refundable. Any financial obligation to HSC must be resolved before any refund is processed.

Class Drops

Refunds are made for any course dropped through the 12th class day for the fall or spring term or a summer session of 10 weeks or longer, within the first four class days of a term or session of more than 5 weeks but less than 10 weeks, and within the first 2 class days of a session 5 weeks or shorter. The term’s first class day is always the first official university day of classes for that specific term or session and not the first day of an individual’s class. To calculate the refund for a class dropped, take the fee paid for the original hours and subtract the fee shown within this Tuition and Fee site for the new number of hours. The difference between the two is the amount credited to the student account.

 

NOTE: If all classes for the semester are dropped, see the Withdrawal Refund schedule below.

Withdrawal from School

Withdrawal refunds are determined by the number of enrolled semester credit hours at the time of withdrawal. Withdrawal percentages are applied to the total amount of tuition and fees as prescribed by state law, NOT the amount paid. The withdrawal schedule and the percentage of refunds shown below pertain to total withdrawal from the term and are mandated by the state legislature. The term’s first class day is always the first official university day of classes for that specific term or session and not the first day of an individual’s class. A withdrawal refund is based on the day of withdrawal, regardless of the date the class first meets.
