After last day to officially withdraw per University Calendar – No Refund

Refunds are based solely on the date of withdrawal, regardless of whether students attend any class(es). As required under section 484B of the Higher Education Act (HEA), to assure recovery of federal financial aid funds, a special refund schedule applies to those students receiving Title IV financial assistance who withdraw (officially or unofficially) during the academic term.

A student not paying tuition fees and subsequently leaving or officially withdrawing from school will be held liable for one-half of those fees. In the case of nonpayment, he or she will be declared delinquent subject to the penalties imposed by the institution for financial delinquency.

Questions concerning fee payment procedures may be directed to the Financial Ombud, 18 Funkhouser Building, (859) 257-3406. Questions concerning tuition refunds may be directed to the Registrar’s Office, Funkhouser Building, (859) 257-8729.
