Spring 2016 Refund Policy and Schedule

Refund Policy

Students will be considered full-time for the spring 2016 semester if they are registered for 12 to 19 credits as of 4:00 p.m. on January 26, 2016. No refunds for tuition and fees will be made to the account of full-time students who drop below 12 credits after January 26, 2016.

Students with federal aid who withdraw from the university will have their Title IV aid recalculated in accordance with guidelines established by the U.S. Department of Education derived from the October 7, 1998 Reauthorization of the Higher Education Act. Details of this policy can be found in the Carroll University catalog.

Tuition Refunds

  • Full- or part-time students who withdraw from the university may be eligible for a tuition refund.
  • Part-time students who drop courses may be eligible for a tuition refund.

Refund Schedule

Add/Drop Courses

All students adding or dropping a course must do so in writing through the Registrar's Office. Refunds are based on the date of the postmark of withdrawals sent by mail, on the receipt date of withdrawals faxed, and on the date of delivery of those brought in personally to the Registrar's Office. If a class is cancelled due to lack of enrollment, students registered for that class will be given a full refund. The refund policy is listed below. The last day to drop a class and receive a partial refund for the spring session is February 22, 2016.

Tuition Refunds

Percent of Refund Withdrawal Date (on or before)
100% January 18, 2016
80% February 1, 2016
60% February 8, 2016
40% February 15, 2016
20% February 22, 2016
0% February 23, 2016

Specially timed courses have the following refund schedule:
100% Before the first day of class
75% Before the second day of class
25% Before the third day of class
0% Before the fourth day of class

All refunds will be reduced by a 5% administrative fee (not to exceed $100).

Courses in the Carroll Online Consortium (OCICU) have a separate refund schedule. To verify the refund date for a particular OCICU course you have registered for, check the section comments on the course for refund details. Each course will follow its own refund schedule.

Financial Aid Refund - Part-time Students

Part-time student's federal or state financial aid will be adjusted to reflect the number of credits for which you are enrolled on January 26, 2016. If your enrollment is less than six (6) credits on this date, you may not be eligible for any financial aid.

Although the Financial Aid Census date (adjustment date for financial aid) is one week after the semester begins, we are required by federal law to review any students who received the Federal Pell Grant. Under federal regulations, students can only receive Federal Pell Grants for the classes they attended. The regulation states the following: If a student begins attending some but not all of his or her classes, the Financial Aid Office will have to recalculate the student's Pell Grant award based on the student's actual enrollment status. Therefore, if you receive a Federal Pell Grant, we will review your enrollment status throughout the semester.
