The date when students submit a completed withdrawal form to the Student Enrollment Center to cancel their registration or to withdraw from all courses determines their eligibility for a refund.

Refunds are not given on individual course drops.

A student who submits to the Student Enrollment Center an officially approved withdrawal form prior to the beginning of fall or spring semester is eligible for a complete refund of all fees except the application fee and enrollment fee.

Please refer to housing and meal refunds, if applicable.

Tuition Refunds

A student who withdraws from the university completely after the beginning of a fall or spring semester and who submits to the Student Enrollment Center an officially approved withdrawal form is entitled to a refund of tuition according to the schedule as follows (subject to change):

Period of Attendance Refund
First Week 100%
Second Week 80%
Third Week 60%
Fourth Week 50%
Fifth Week 40%
After the Fifth Week No Refund

Federal guidelines for the pro-rating of student financial aid awards to students who totally withdraw from the university partway through a term usually do not coincide with the above refund policy.

Students contemplating a mid-term withdrawal from the university should first contact the Student Enrollment Center to discuss the impact of a mid-term withdrawal on their financial aid awards and possible resultant personal liability to the university for charges not covered by prorated financial aid awards.

Housing & Meals Refunds

A student who officially withdraws completely from the university prior to the beginning of any semester is eligible to receive a full refund of housing fees.

A student who officially withdraws completely from the university during the semester is entitled to receive a pro-rated refund of housing fees, based upon a weekly scale.

The Housing Office will determine if any refund of housing fees is possible for a student who leaves university housing for medical reasons.

If a student is asked to leave university housing, the details concerning a housing refund shall be determined by the Director of Housing. You can reach the Director of Residential & Dining Services at housinganddining@esu.edu or (570) 422-3460.

The university shall always retain the authority to allow exceptions to this policy.

A student who officially withdraws after the beginning of a semester and who notifies Enrollment Services will be entitled to a refund of the board paid for the remainder of the semester.

A student who withdraws during a week will be charged for the entire week.
