Refund Schedule

If you withdraw from a course but your remaining number of credit hours for the semester still qualifies you as a full time student, you will not get any tuition refund/credit.

Full time status:

  • 12 - 18 SH for undergraduates (All Colleges)
  • 9 - 12 SH for graduate and doctoral students (non CCPA)
  • 9 - 13 SH for graduate students in College of Performing Arts

The following fees are not refundable:

  • General Fee: $125 (undergraduate students) / $150 (graduate students)
  • Student Activity Fee: $25

During the 100% tuition refund/credit period no grade will be posted to student's record. Beginning the day on which the tuition refund/credit other than a 100% starts a "W" grade will be recorded.

Grade Availability

In general, grades are due from instructors 5 days after the end of session. For shorter sessions (for example 5 or 6 day session) the grades are due 10 days after their end. If the due date falls on the weekend or holiday the deadline will be moved forward. Next day after the grades are due from instructors, Office of the Registrar posts them on RU Access.

The total number of credits earned, term GPA, and academic standing are not calculated immediately. Some calculations need to take place, before the total number of credits earned, term GPA, and academic standing can be recalculated.

Requests for official transcripts with the current semester grades posted, will be put on hold until the last step of the grading process is completed and the total number of earned credit hours, GPA, and academic standing are updated.
