Refund Policy

Registration

When a student registers, it is understood that he or she will pay in full all charges assumed at registration. Failure to attend classes does not alter the charges or entitle the student to a tuition refund. Students will not be permitted to receive grades, transcripts, or diploma unless the student account is paid in full.

Overpayment

Credit balances will remain on your student account and be applied to subsequent semesters, unless a refund is specifically requested, or is a refund from Federal Financial Aid. If the credit balance is from Federal Financial Aid and no refund has been requested, it will be refunded to the student (or parent if it is from a Plus Loan) at the end of the academic year. To request a refund of a credit balance, go to myNU, click on the Resources Tab at the top of the page and, under Financial Resources, choose the Request a Refund option and submit the request. Students  will receive an email when their refund check is available. 

Committee on Refunds

An appeal for refund of tuition and fees may be made to the Committee on Refunds, provided that continued attendance and/or residence by the student is made impossible by reasons of serious illness (supported by a doctor's certificate) or other emergencies, which, in the opinion of the committee, are clearly beyond the control of the student.

An application for refund may be filed in person or by mail in the Student Records and Financial Services Office, and must be made in writing on the form provided for that purpose. If the student is prevented by illness or distance from obtaining the regular form of such application, he or she should address a letter to the Records Office indicating the courses to be dropped and carefully explain his or her reasons, together with supporting certifications.
