Return of Tuition funds
Regulation of Florida A&M University 3.009 (5)
Tuition refunds are calculated on a course by course (per credit hour) basis. Students who are enrolled and then withdraw may not receive a refund. Refunds will be computed based on the actual withdrawal date certified by the Office of the Registrar. Refunds will not be made to students who do not attend class and have not completed the required withdrawal procedure. Terms in the student housing contract will determine the refund of room rent; whereas board will be prorated based on the approved date of cancellation. Refund processing is approximately two to four weeks.
(a) Students who officially withdraw prior to the end of the drop/add period and have completed the required withdrawal procedure will be entitled to 100 percent of the tuition assessed or adjustment for waivers.
(b) Students who officially withdraw prior to the end of the fourth week of classes and have completed the required withdrawal procedure will be entitled to 25 percent of the tuition assessed or adjustment for waivers, less building and capital improvement fees.
(c) Students who officially withdraw at an appropriate time as designated by the University for Summer sessions and have completed the required withdrawal procedure will be entitled to 25 percent of the tuition assessed or adjustment for waivers, less building and capital improvement fees.
(d) Exceptions to the refund policy are made only in rare instances. Written application for an exception must be filed with the Office of Student Financials and addressed to the Refund/Waiver Appeals Committee. If a student withdraws or drops one or more credit courses due to circumstances determined by the University to be exceptional and beyond the control of the student, the student will be entitled to 25 to 75 percent of the tuition assessed or adjustment for waivers.
Exceptions include but are not limited to:
1. Illness of a student of such severity or duration, as confirmed in writing by a physician, to preclude the completion of the course(s);
2. Death of the student or death in the immediate family (parent, stepparent, spouse, child, sibling, or grandparent);
3. Involuntary call to active military duty; or
4. A situation in which the University is in error. The amount of a payment in excess of the adjusted assessment will be refunded.
(e) A written appeal for a refund or other appeal action must be submitted to the University within six (6) months of the close of the semester to which the refund or other appeal action is applicable.(f) Pursuant to Public Law 102-325, the Higher Education Amendments of 1992, and notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (5) and paragraph (5) (a) above, for the first term in which students are enrolled at the University for the first time, a pro-rata refund of tuition, fees, room and board, and other charges shall be made as required by Public Law 102-325.
