Tuition Refund Policynext

You are here


When a student registers, it is understood that he or she will pay in full all charges assumed on the due date, first day of class.  Failure to attend classes does not alter the charges or entitle the student to a tuition refund. Students will not be permitted to receive grades, transcripts, or diploma unless the student account is paid in full.


Credit balances on the student account, due to excess Title IV Federal Financial Aid funds, will be refunded to the student within 14 business days of the student account becoming a credit balance.  Refunds for Parent Plus Loans, will be refunded to the parent, unless the parent notes on their application, that it should go to the student.

Tuition Waiver Review Committee (for medical waivers)

A drop of current semester tuition and fee charges, may be requested through the Bursar to the Tuition Waiver Review Committee.  This is conditional on the fact that continued attendance by the student is made impossible by reasons of serious illness which, in the opinion of the committee, are clearly beyond the control of the student.  The student must indicate the courses to be dropped for the current semester and carefully explain his or her reasons, as well as providing a doctor's note explaining the illness and dates of the illness.  The student will be notified this is done on a one-time basis.

Return of Title IV Funds Policy

Official/Unofficial Withdrawals:

If you are receiving federal student aid (Title IV aid) and completely withdraw (all “W” grades) or receive all non-passing grades (F, I, W) from your course(s) during a semester, federal regulations require schools to return any “unearned” Title IV aid for the period.

In order to earn 100% of your federal student aid, you must earn at least one passing grade and/or attend through 60% of the academic period in at least one course. If you failed to earn a passing grade, but were in attendance at an academically-related activity through 60% of the period, the Financial Aid Office will verify your last date of attendance with your course instructor(s).

The following are examples of approved academically-related activities; your attendance must have been documented by an official of the university:

  • Examinations, quizzes, tutorials or lectures
  • Computer-assisted instruction
  • Completing an academic assignment, paper, or project
  • Attending an academic conference or study group required by the institution
  • In accordance with federal rules, participating in academic counseling or advisement, or logging into an online class without active participation will not be considered an academically-related activity.

The percentage of aid the student has earned is calculated using the student’s withdrawal date to determine the percentage of the period completed. For students withdrawing from all courses, the date of withdrawal is the date the student completely withdrew from all courses.

Any unearned aid must be returned to the federal student aid programs in the following order:

  • Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan
  • Direct Subsidized Stafford Loan
  • Direct PLUS Loan (Parent or Graduate/Prof Student)
  • Federal Pell Grant
  • Federal SEOG
  • TEACH Grant

If it is determined that there is unearned aid, then the school must return the unearned funds. Medaille College will bill you for any account balance created if we are required to return financial aid.
