Tuition Refund Policy

In the event that you initiate a complete withdrawal from the University or a change from full-time to part-time during the three-week refund period for semester-long classes, tuition and fees are refunded as indicated below.

Summer Sessions

Refunds for Summer Courses are determined by the elapsed instructional time as a percentage of the total instructional time for the course.
A student may receive 100%, 50% or 0% refund.

See printable academic calendars on the academic calendar page and/or refer to specific class’s CRN on the class availability page to get refund and withdrawal dates.

Fall and Spring Semesters

  • 100% refund of tuition and fees for complete withdrawal from the UH system only if made on or before the last day of late registration.
  • 100% refund of tuition only (no fees) for partial withdrawal is made on or before the last day of late registration.
  • 50% refund of tuition (no fees) if complete withdrawal or change in status or a change from one tuition rate to another tuition rate if made within the first three weeks of instruction.
  • 0% refund if complete withdrawal or change in status or a change from one tuition rate to another tuition rate is made beginning the fourth week of instruction.

Please refer to the specific class’s CRN on the class availability page to get refund and withdrawal dates for part of term classes (accelerated and modular classes that meet for periods other than the entire semester).

Processing of refunds generally starts after the last day of receiving 50% refund of tuition (see academic calendar).

The college reserves the right to redirect refunds to apply to any financial account balances for another semester.

*For non-financial aid recipients, refunds will be made back to the credit card if payment was made by that card. For all other refunds may be issued through eRefund or by mailed check.
