Refund Policies

The university's refund policy is published in each of the university bulletins: the undergraduate bulletin, the graduate bulletin, and the law bulletin. Specific deadline dates are also customarily published in each semester'sacademic calendar.

The university’s general policy on refunds is described below. Federal statute requires an alternate calculation for recipients of federal Title IV financial assistance.  This alternate refund calculation is described in the Refund Policy section of the university bulletin and is initiated by the Scholarships and Financial Aid office.   Please note that this alternate calculation may affect the amount of money you owe or is owed to you by the university.  

Tuition

Students who withdraw must return a completed withdrawal form to the Office of Student Records. Mere cessation of attendance does not constitute withdrawal. The date of receipt of the withdrawal notice by the Office of Student Records will determine the amount of tuition refund. Refunds are a percentage of the tuition payable in the semester in which the student withdraws, not a percentage of the total amount billed. Only tuition is refundable. No refunds are made when a student is suspended or dismissed for academic, disciplinary, or financial reasons, or when a full time student reduces their course load to part time after the deadline for 100% refund.

Tuition refunds are made for the semester-long fall and spring terms on the following basis:

  1. If formal notice is received within two weeks after the beginning of the semester, a refund of 100 percent of tuition is made.
  2. If formal notice is received within five weeks after the beginning of the semester, a refund of 50 percent of tuition is made.
  3. No refunds are allowed after the fifth week of classes.

Since special sessions, short sessions, and summer sessions vary in length, please refer to the academic calendar for those refund deadlines. A student forced to withdraw for medical reasons should consult the Academic Regulations section of this bulletin for the university’s policy on medical withdrawals.

Room and Board

Students who withdraw from the university may be entitled to a refund of all or a percentage of their room and board charges.  Students who withdraw must return a completed withdrawal form to the Office of Student Records that includes appropriate signatures from the Office of Residential Life and the Office of Student Affairs.  Mere cessation of attendance does not constitute withdrawal from the university.  Students wishing to cancel housing and remain a student of the university and who are eligible to move off campus may be entitled to a refund of a portion of their room and board charges.  Students wishing to cancel their housing must do so in writing to the Office of Residential Life.  

Amount of refund will be determined by the date of receipt of the withdrawal notice by the Office of Student Records, or the date of official check out from the student's assigned residence hall, whichever is later.  No refunds of room or board will be made when a student is evicted, suspended, or dismissed for academic, disciplinary, or financial reasons. Residence council fees are non-refundable.

  1. If formal withdrawal notice and residence hall check out are received within two weeks after the beginning of the semester, a refund of 60 percent of room and board, less actual Wolf Bucks used, is made.
  2. If formal withdrawal notice and residence hall check out are received within five weeks after the beginning of the semester, a refund of 50 percent of room and board, less actual Wolf Bucks used, is made.
  3. No refunds are allowed after the fifth week of classes.

During summer sessions, room and board charges will be pro-rated to actual usage, rounded up to the next full week when a student officially withdraws.  However, no refunds on room or board will be given after 50% of the session has expired.  Unused Wolf Bucks purchased for the summer sessions are not refundable other than by official withdrawal from the university, but are carried forward to the next academic year for students who continue their enrollment at Loyola.
