Refund Policy

To be eligible for a refund of tuition and fees, you may withdraw from classes online at eSTORM or submit a written request to one of the campus registration centers within the refund period.

No withdrawals will be accepted over the phone. For withdrawal procedures, refer to the Dropping Courses section on the Course Information page. 

The term "refund" is strictly applicable only if all charges for which the student is liable have already been paid. Otherwise, any refund due will take the form of a corresponding reduction in the total liability on the student's account.

To Receive a 100 Percent Refund of Your Tuition and Fees

You may drop classes online at eSTORM or submit a written request to the Belleville Campus Enrollment Services Office (if you mail your written notice, it must be postmarked) 10 or more calendar days prior to the official start date of the class.

Specific "100% Deadline" dates for each class can be found on your eSTORM account. Log in, go to your Student Center, click My Class Schedule and click the Deadline icon (shown below). These dates are also published in each semester's "Schedule of Classes" in the "Course Listings."
