Refund Policies

Refund of Institutional Tuition, Room and Board Charges

In the event a student drops one or more classes, withdraws, or is administratively dismissed from the University for disciplinary or for financial reasons after registration is completed and prior to the end of a semester of enrollment, the student’s eligibility for a refund of appropriate institutional tuition, room and board charges will be prorated as indicated.

A student must complete a Change of Schedule form(obtained from the Office of the Registrar) for dropping one or more classes.

Any situation in which all classes are dropped is a withdrawal from the University. The official withdrawal process beings in the Office of the Registrar. The Registrar uses the date the student communicates in writing their intent to withdraw and begins the University’s withdrawal process, as the official withdrawal date. The student, working with the Registrar’s Office, must complete the Undergrad/Graduate Withdrawal Form, obtain all the necessary signatures, and submit the completed form to the Registrar’s Office. Verbal requests do not constitute official notification.

Should the student fail to complete the process, all semester charges will become immediately due and are payable in the Cashier’s Office.

Applicable institutional charges for Fall and Spring semesters will be refunded according to the following schedule:

Through the first week of classes 100%
During the second week of the semester 75%
During the third week of the semester 50%
During the fourth week of the semester 25%
After the fourth week of the semester 0%

No refund of institutional charges will be made after the fourth week of the semester.

Refund schedules pertaining to summer and mini terms are adjusted to the varying length of the terms. They appear in the Class Schedule published for the given term.

Room and board fees will not be refunded to any student who withdraws from campus residency but remains enrolled at LMU during the semester or term.
