Refund Schedule - Undergraduate Students

Should a refund result in a credit balance on your student account, in the absence of a "keep credit" hold, UST will issue an electronic refund (eRefund) to the checking or savings account designated in your eRefund profile.* Check out the eRefunds page for more information.
*Does not apply to Parent Plus Loan (PPL) refunds. PPL refund checks are mailed directly to borrower.

Spring & Fall Terms:

For courses that begin at mid-semester, the above schedule applies from the first day of the class.

You are responsible for all tuition and fees incurred when you register for a course.  Failing to attend or ceasing to attend does not constitute a withdrawal.  If you wish to no longer be enrolled in a course, you must drop it by the published deadline.  The effective date of your tuition refund will be the date of your Murphy transaction to change your registration, or the day your Change in Registration form or checkout form is received by the Office of the Registrar.

B. Food Service/Board Plans

If you reside in university housing, you can cancel your board plan by completing the appropriate form in the Student Housing System within Murphy Online.  Dining Service refunds are calculated using the date the form is submitted as it applies to the tuition and fees refund schedule above.  If you are a non-resident student and have contracted for meals, your refund will be based upon the date your written cancellation is received in Dining Services.

C. Residence

Residential students may cancel the Residence and Food Service Agreement by completing the cancellation form in the Student Housing System within Murphy Online.
