Withdrawal and Refund Policies

Official Semester Withdrawals (all students)

Students who officially withdraw within 60% of the semester will receive tuition refunds and their unearned financial aid will be returned as follows:

Withdrawal due to Military Service 

http://bulletin.miami.edu/general-university-information/undergraduate-academic-procedure-information/course-information/#militarywithdrawal


Students who need to withdraw from a semester due to official orders to active duty with the Armed Forces of the United State must provide a copy of their official written orders when submitting the request to withdraw.

  • Students who withdraw after the 12th week of the semester because of these official orders may either be awarded credit hour (CR) or an academic grade for any course in which they have achieved a C or better up to the time of withdrawal.  Instructors must certify that the student had achieved satisfactory accomplishment on the basis of previous work in the course by awarding an appropriate grade.  Accomplishment of less than C should be entered on the permanent record as a withdrawal without prejudice (W).
  • Credit hour granted for courses under this policy should count toward graduation.
  • There should be no refund of tuition for courses for which credit hour has been awarded.  Refunds for courses not awarded credit hour should be on the same basis as complete withdrawals for military service.
  • The above recommendations are procedures for determining the awarding of credit hour and do not release the student from the usual withdrawal procedures.

 

Tuition/TA refunds

Tuition is prorated based on the number of days attended through the effective date as defined previously. Refunds are credited to the student’s account. Fees are nonrefundable, except if the student did not attend the University (withdrew before the first day of classes).

Note: Special provisions apply to the following programs: Executive MBA, the MBA Program for Working Professionals, the Master in Science Professional Management and the School of Continuing Studies Intersession, Spring Break and Mini-Mesters. Please refer to the school bulletins for details.

For students withdrawing from courses who are receiving Tuition Assistance (TA) from the Department of Defense, the School will return any unearned TA funds on a proportional basis through the 60 percent portion for which the funds were provided.  TA funds will be earned proportionally during an enrollment period, with unearned funds being returned based upon when a student stops attending school. 

Calculation of return of unearned TA funds when a student officially withdraws from a course

Total number of calendar days in semester divided by the notification date (considered the last date of attendance), take the result and subtract by 100% (full term) to get Percentage of days not attended by student.

 Example: 

Notification (Last date of attendance) date  50th day of the Semester

Total number of calendar days in semester

(Total number of calendar days may vary from semester to semester)

108
Percentage of attendance 50/108 = 46.3%
Percentage of days not attended by student 1-46.3% = 53.7%

             

The Unearned TA Funds will be calculated 53.7%. Students who withdraw after 60% of the semester will not receive a TA refund.  

The School will return unearned TA within 45 days from the date the student withdraws from the course.
