For information regarding student and parent loan programs, please refer to the appropriate category in the Student Financial Services section of this Catalog.

Policy on Refunds
Students who voluntarily drop all courses in a term prior to attending will have tuition and fees refunded in full for that term. Certain fees may be non-refundable. Information regarding non-refundable fees can be found in the tuition, fees and expenses section of the catalog. Once a student begins attendance in a course, all fees are non-refundable.

If the student withdraws or takes a leave of absence prior to the end of the term, a student must complete the official withdrawal or leave of absence process detailed in their respective course catalog to be eligible for a tuition refund.

Tuition for courses dropped after the student begins attendance, withdraws, or takes a leave of absence is prorated based on the number of sessions attended out of the total number of scheduled sessions for the course through the first 60 percent of the semester. The withdrawal date used to calculate the tuition proration is the date the student completes the official withdrawal process or last date of attendance at an academically related activity, if documented.

Official Withdrawal or Leave of Absence
A student who needs or desires to take a Withdrawal (WDL) or take a Leave of Absence (LOA) from the University of Redlands must schedule an appointment with their Student Services Manager and complete an exit interview. A WDL or LOA is considered official once the student submits a written request of their intent and the request has been completed and submitted to their Student Services Manager. The request will state the intentions of the student to discontinue the course(s) in which they are registered and the effective date the WDL or LOA will be implemented, which is then recorded by the Registrar’s Office.

In order for a student to drop a course after the course has begun but prior to the last meeting of the course, the Registrar must be notified in writing. The request should include the last date of attendance. The withdrawal is effective the day after the last date of attendance. The student is responsible for obtaining refunds of tuition and/or charges, which are calculated according to the tuition refund schedule located in the appropriate Tuition and Fees selection of this Catalog. The student will receive a grade of “W” on their transcript.

The University may administratively withdraw students from courses or programs for non-attendance, final non-payment, or academic actions. The student is responsible for obtaining refunds of tuition and/or charges, which are calculated in accordance with the tuition refund schedule located in the appropriate Tuition and Fees section of this Catalog. The student will receive a grade of “W” on their transcript. If a student is dropped from two courses in a sequence, or three courses within a twelve-month period of matriculation, they may be administratively withdrawn from the program.

During a student’s leave of absence, the University maintains all of their official records on an active basis. Students returning from a leave of absence of one year or less are not required to be formally readmitted. Students will be expected to fulfill the graduation requirements in effect at the date of their original matriculation. Students who do not return from a leave of absence within one year are withdrawn from the University. To return, they must be formally readmitted.

Denial of Admission
Students who are denied admission to a program after beginning their coursework may immediately withdraw or continue the current course. Students will be liable for 100% of the course costs for all courses completed. Course costs include per-credit tuition, matriculation fees, and related course fees. Academic credit will be received for all completed courses. A withdrawal is considered official when written notice is provided to the Registrar’s Office stating the student’s intention to withdraw.
