Withdrawal and Refund Policies

Withdrawing

Students may withdraw from the university (that is, withdraw from all classes) at any time by contacting the Academic Counseling & Support Office, but should use the Murphy Online process or paper Drop/Add form to withdraw their class registrations as soon as they decide to take that action. The standard withdrawal calendar as defined in the Changes in Registration section determines how the withdrawal will be recorded on the transcript. Students who withdraw from all classes must return any items that belong to the university. Resident students must check out with the floor resident adviser. Tuition refunds, if any, are established by the tuition refund schedule posted in the section on conditions determining tuition refunds.

Withdrawing from All Classes Using the Optional Tuition Refund Plan (TRP)

The University of St. Thomas offers undergraduate students an optional Tuition Refund Plan (TRP) that helps protect undergraduate students from financial loss in the event of an unexpected accident or serious illness resulting in withdrawal from all classes after the beginning of the academic term. The TRP significantly extends and enhances the University’s published tuition refund policy and applies only if the student withdraws from all classes in the term. The University’s tuition refund schedule will apply if students are required to withdraw from an individual course(s) but stay enrolled for one or more courses.

Participation in the Tuition Refund Plan offered by A.W.G. Dewar is entirely optional, however, students who choose not to purchase tuition insurance will not be granted refunds beyond those provided for by the University’s published tuition refund schedule.

For questions regarding the Tuition Refund Plan, please contact the Business Office at 651-962-6600.  Or visit https://www.stthomas.edu/businessoffice/students/tuitionrefundplan/

In the event that a student has purchased the TRP coverage and is withdrawing for qualified medical reasons the student must submit their claim documents within 30 days of withdrawal.  Students intending to submit a TRP claim should contact Stephanie Carlson, Director of the Business Office, to initiate the claims process.
