Withdrawals and Refunds

Students should give written notice of withdrawal to the student services advisor or the registrar to terminate their enrollment officially. Students who do not give written notice will be withdrawn from courses when it is determined, by the university, that the student is no longer pursuing his or her educational objective.

The period of enrollment includes all courses in the term for which the student is registered, from the first scheduled day of the term through the last scheduled day of the term for the student.

The return of Title IV funds and the tuition reduction will be calculated based on the student’s last day of attendance. Refunds minus a $75 administrative fee will be made within 45 days of when the withdrawal date (last day of attendance) is determined.

The following refund policy from NAU applies to all students in all academic programs and all student categories.  The following refund policy does not apply to contract agreements or other arrangements where a separate refund policy is stated.

A prorated amount of Title IV funds must be returned to financial aid programs for students not completing 60 percent of the period of enrollment if the student was a financial aid recipient.

Students who completely withdraw from NAU during the first 60 percent of the term will have tuition and fees prorated based on the last day of attendance in accordance with the following calculation:

Last Day of Attendance Percent of Reduction
Withdrawal prior to the first day of classes 100%
Last day of attendance during the first week of classes 100%
Beyond first week but during first 60% of scheduled classes daily proration*
Beyond 60% of scheduled classes no refund

* Percent of term completed = Number of days from scheduled start of term through student’s last day of attendance

Percent to be refunded = 100% minus percent of term completed.
