Students who make schedule adjustments resulting in a credit hour load reduction or complete withdrawal from the University may be eligible to receive a refund of tuition and fees. Refunds for the fall and winter semesters will be computed as follows:
End of First Week
End of Second Week
End of Third Week
End of Fourth Week
Refunds for the spring/summer semester or shorter term periods will be calculated proportionally in accordance with the above schedule.
Students receiving University administered scholarships and financial aid may be subject to special federal or other awarding agency refund requirements. Financial Aid recipients attending SVSU for the first time who receive assistance from Title IV federal programs may be eligible for a pro rata refund if they totally withdraw from school. Withdrawing students should contact the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid for further information.
Withdrawal and drop procedures are posted online for each semester. Official dates pertaining to this process and office hours for the Registrar’s Office also are posted online. Students must file a withdrawal or drop form in the Registrar’s Office to be eligible for refunds. The date used to determine refunds is the date on which the form is returned with all necessary signatures to the Registrar’s Office.
Separate refund policies exist that apply to the death or serious illness of a student. The University will provide, upon request, examples of the application of this policy. Such requests should be made in person or in writing to Student Accounting Services, Office of the Controller.
