Administrative Holds

A hold from the Office of Bursar and Loan Administration means that a financial obligation has not been met. Check your eBill for the amount you need to pay

Until your past due balance is paid in full, the hold will prevent you from:

  • registering for classes
  • obtaining a transcript or diploma
  • making a change to a schedule
  • processing an application for admission

Tuition Refunds (Credits)

If you wish to withdraw from a course(s), but not your complete registration, you may be eligible for a reduction of your original tuition charges based on the below refund schedule.

Undergraduate students who withdraw from a course and are still registered for 12 to 18 course credits that semester will not receive an adjustment to their tuition charges.

Examples

You start the semester taking 12 credits, but you withdraw from a three-credit course in the third week of the semester. That makes you eligible for a tuition-credit rate of 50 percent, which also means you are responsible for 50 percent of the tuition for those three credits you withdrew from (or 1.5 credits). You will receive a tuition credit for that difference of 1.5 credits, which brings your total for the semester to10.5 credits.

You start the semester taking nine credits, but you withdraw from a three-credit course in the second week of the semester. That makes you eligible for a tuition-credit rate of 75 percent, which also means you are responsible for 25 percent of the tuition for those three credits you withdrew from(or .75 credits). You will receive a tuition credit for that difference of 2.25 credits, which brings your total course credits for the semester to 6.75 credits.
