Cancellation, Withdrawal, Change of Registration Status & Refund of Fees

Students who advance register or register in person and subsequently decide not to attend the School of Law must notify the Director of Registration & Enrollment in writing on or before the first day of classes. If this office has not received a request for cancellation by 5:00 p.m. on or before the first day of classes, the University will assume the student plans to attend and accepts his or her financial obligation. A student desiring to withdraw from the school at any time during the academic year after classes begin must so inform the Director of Registration & Enrollment by letter/email or by completing an Application for Withdrawal. Students canceling their registration and those withdrawing from the school must satisfy all outstanding financial obligations to the school and return his or her student identification card. If the above procedures are not completed, the student forfeits the right to any refunds. For students withdrawing, the date used in computing refunds is the date the Application for Withdrawal is signed by the Director of Registration & Enrollment or the date of receipt of the letter/email stating the decision to withdraw.

First-year day division students pay a flat-rate tuition and pay tuition on a per credit basis after the second semester.  First-year and second-year evening division students pay a flat-rate tuition and pay tuition on a per credit basis after the fourth semester.  All students pay tuition on a per credit basis during summer sessions. Subsequent to the add/drop deadline, there is no tuition refund for students who are given permission to drop courses.
