Part-time students are subject to the same regulations applicable to full-time students.

Payment Policy 
Tuition and fees are billed by term, with payment due 30 days from the invoice date. All charges must be paid in full prior to the tuition due date. All remittances should be made payable to the University of Redlands.

Students with a past due balance on their University account are subject to dismissal from the University. The University will not release diplomas or process degree conferrals until the past due balance is paid in full.

Students will not be permitted to preregister for the next term until the past due balance is paid in full.

If the University is required to use third-party collections (i.e., collection agency or attorney) to collect the student account balance due, any future registration may require payment in advance.

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 term, 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 receive a tuition refund.

Tuition for courses dropped prior to the add/drop date for the term will be refunded in full. Once the add/drop date has passed, tuition is prorated based on the number of sessions attended out of the total number of scheduled sessions 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 
A withdrawal is considered official when written notice has been provided to the Registrar’s Office stating the intention of the student to discontinue the course(s) or program in which he or she is registered or the University administratively withdraws students from courses or programs for non-attendance, financial nonpayment, or academic actions. Written withdrawal notification must include the last date of attendance. The withdrawal will be considered effective as of the last date of attendance.

If a student fails to attend the first two sessions of any course, the student may be administratively dropped by the University from the course. If a student is dropped from two courses in sequence or three courses within a twelve-month period, he or she may be administratively withdrawn from the program and will be charged in accordance with the University’s Refund Policy.

Returning Students 
Students re-enrolling after withdrawal from the University will be charged current rates and fees based on the start date of new registration.

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.

Tuition Liability and Refund Schedule
A Program Withdrawal form or a letter of withdrawal must be sent to the Registrar’s Office to withdraw officially from the program. The matriculation fee is non-refundable.
