The Summer Add/Drop Period ends one business day after the first class meeting.
The Add/Drop Period for each semester and each session can be found on the Academic Calendar.
If a student changes their enrollment, does not attend, or does not complete a registered course, their aid will be adjusted, and they will likely owe a balance. Unpaid balances will result in a hold on their account.
Financial aid is earned based on days of attendance. Students who do not complete their Summer courses will be subjected to the Return of Title IV Funds calculation, resulting in loss of aid. This return calculation can occur AFTER Summer classes have concluded and will result in a balance due.
Students must be enrolled in at least six credit hours to receive federal financial aid.
If a student decides they no longer want to attend a class registered for, they MUST drop the course(s) online. The student is responsible for ensuring their schedule matches their intentions.
Summer Refund Policy
If a student withdraws from courses:
Before or during the Add/Drop Period, they will receive a 100 % refund
Between one and six calendar days after the Add/Drop Period ends, they will receive a 50% refund for their tuition only; no fees will be refunded.
No refunds will be given seven or more calendar days after the Add/Drop Period ends.
Summer aid is processed before Spring grades are posted. At the end of the Spring semester, if a student is academically dismissed or not making SAP, they will be ineligible for Summer financial aid. Any Summer aid awarded will be canceled, resulting in a balance due.
Due to the academic intensity of the Summer term, if a student is on an SAP Warning status or is on an approved SAP Probation appeal, we strongly suggest they discuss their Summer enrollment with Academic Advising.
If a student is on an SAP Warning status at the end of the Spring semester:
Undergraduates must earn a minimum 2.0 GPA and successfully complete 66.7% of the Summer courses attempted.
Graduate students must earn a minimum 3.0 GPA and successfully complete 66.7% of the Summer courses attempted.
Failure to achieve the above requirements will result in a failing SAP status and the loss of financial aid for the Fall semester.
