Tuition Refund Schedule for Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences

Students in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences who take a leave of absence or for any reason discontinue attending school will have their tuition prorated to the number of months of school attended during the enrollment period for which the student was charged, rounded to the nearest dollar.

Refund of Fees for All Students

Fees assessed to a student’s account are non-refundable, with the exception of the following:

Graduation Fee – This fee will be waived in full if a student withdraws.

Health Insurance – Health Insurance will be prorated to the number of months during which the student was enrolled during the enrollment period billed. Students who are enrolled in the student health plan prior to their first day of an approved Leave of Absence (LOA) have the option to continue health insurance for a maximum of 12 months following the last day of the month in which their LOA is effective. Students have 31 days from their effective date of LOA to checkout with the HR–Benefits office and elect to continue health insurance. They may do so by submitting a completed “Student Continuation for Insurance while on Leave of Absence” form to the Benefits Office along with a check for the premium for the first month of leave. Thereafter, payment must be made (postmarked) on or before the first of each month for that month’s coverage.

Proration of Financial Aid Funds

Students who receive federal financial aid and do not complete at least 60 percent of the enrollment period for which they were charged are subject to a Return of Title IV funds calculation. The Office of Financial Aid performs this calculation to determine the amount of federal financial aid a student has earned based on the percentage of time remaining in the enrollment period.   

If financial aid under the Federal Title IV program was issued to a student during the period of enrollment, any unearned aid will be returned to the lender in the following order:

Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan Program

Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan Program

Any other Federal Title IV program

Other federal, state, private or institutional sources
