Bursar's Office | Tuition and Fee Adjustments
If a student reduces their course load by dropping one or more courses, in the Fall or Spring, before the 14th day of class, and in the Summer, before the 7th day of class, tuition and fees are reduced by 100% of the difference.
Withdrawal from the University
When a student finds it necessary to discontinue enrollment prior to the end of the semester or summer term, the student must complete a withdrawal card, obtainable from the Registrar’s Office or a Center for Student Retention and Success Counselor. The student must provide a valid reason for resigning and must make arrangements with the Comptroller’s Office to clear any outstanding balance. Once the withdrawal card has been completed and signed, it must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office. The process is not officially complete until the withdrawal card is returned to the Registrar’s Office.
When a student leaves the University at any time during a semester or summer session without completing a withdrawal card, the student will receive a grade of “FX” in all courses. An FX indicates that a student has unofficially ceased enrollment and as a result, has failed the course/courses registered for due to a lack of attendance.
Refunds Due to Withdrawals from the University
Tuition and some fees are credited to the student’s account based on the date of withdrawal and the percentage of the semester completed (i.e. 90%, 75%, & 50%)
Provided that tuition and fees have been paid in full, refunds are issued to students who have withdrawn from the University. Refunds are determined by the following policies:
(1) Southern University at New Orleans Institutional Refund Policy
When a cash paying student chooses to officially withdraw or stops attending classes, the withdrawal date is the date the completed form is submitted to the Registrar’s Office.
(2) Federal Government Refund Policy
When a Title IV recipient chooses to officially withdraw or stops attending classes, the University is required, by Federal Law, to perform a recalculation of tuition and fees. This may result in indebtedness to the University or to the Title IV program. The withdrawal date, according to the Department of Education, is the date the student initiated the process.
Tuition and some fees are credited to the student’s account as follows:
If a student withdraws:
|Fall & Spring||Summer|
|Before classes begin:||90%||Before classes begin||90%|
|First day of class through the seventeenth day of class:||75%||First day of class through the seventh day of class:||75%|
|Eighteenth day of class through the twenty-fourth day of class:||50%||Eighth day of class through the twelfth day of class:||50%|
|After the twenty-fourth day of class:||0%||After the twelfth day of class:||0%|
