The University of Redlands’ refund policy complies with federal guidelines (per University Catalog):
Students who withdraw or take a leave of absence from the University during an academic term may receive prorated aid and tuition based on their federally required withdrawal calculation. The withdrawal calculation reevaluates aid eligibility at the time of withdrawal by accounting for “earned” versus “unearned” aid based on the amount of time that has elapsed during the term. There are three steps that the University of Redlands must complete to comply with the federal policy:
1. Determine the withdrawal date
2. Determine the amount of earned federal aid
3. Return unearned federal funds to the appropriate program(s)
The withdrawal date is the date the student gives official notification of his or her intent to withdraw. For the withdrawal to be considered official, the student must provide written notification to the Registrar’s Office after consultation with his or her Student Services Manager. If the student fails to withdraw officially, the applicable date will become the midpoint of the term, unless the University can document a later date. In certain circumstances, if a later date of last academic activity is substantiated, this date can be used in lieu of the midpoint of the term. Students who withdraw before completing at least 60 percent of the term will “earn” funds in direct proportion to the time they were enrolled. The percentage of earned aid is determined by dividing the total number of calendar days enrolled by the total number of days in the term. Students who complete at least 60 percent of the term are eligible for 100 percent of their federal financial aid. Unearned aid must be returned to the appropriate programs in accordance with the calculations schedule approved by the U.S. Secretary of Education. Refunds to specific Title IV programs will be made according to current regulations.
The University of Redlands is regionally accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
