After the add/drop period has ended, students who withdraw from ALL courses may be due a reduction in their tuition and mandatory fees.
Special course fees, health insurance premium and matriculation fee will not be reduced after the add/drop period has ended.
See the withdrawal schedules for the appropriate term below:
A student who drops a course(s) or withdraws from the university may be entitled to a reduction of tuition and fees. The amount of the reduction, if any, will be determined by the date on which the student drops the course(s) or withdraws from the University.
The last day to drop a course and receive a tuition refund, while still remaining registered in other courses, is the last day of the add/drop period for the term.
Refer to the Office of the Registrar calendar for the last day to add/drop with no grade for each term. After the add/drop period has ended, there will be NO tuition refunds for a partial course withdrawal. A student would need to withdraw from ALL courses to receive a tuition reduction or refund.
Starting on the first day of classes, students who wish to drop/withdraw from ALL registered courses must completely withdraw from the university to avoid academic or financial responsibility. Check the important links on the Withdrawing from UNC Charlotte website to be sure that you have completed all of the appropriate notifications.
Students that have been awarded Federal financial aid will also be subject to the Return of Title IV Funds Policy if they withdraw from courses or withdraw from the University. Withdrawing from courses may require the return of awarded Title IV funds and may result in a balance due on your tuition and fees bill. Federal Title IV aid includes Stafford Loans, Perkins Loans, PLUS Loans, Pell Grants, SEOG Grants, ACG Grants, and SMART Grants. Please refer to the Office of Financial Aid website for additional information.
Appeal for Tuition, Housing and Dining Refund
Students who experience extenuating circumstances that warrant consideration of a refund may submit an Appeal for Tuition, Housing and Dining Refund to request a reduction in charges. The appeal must be substantiated by medical reasons, unexpected employment changes, death in the immediate family, or University error and will be reviewed by the University Appeals Committee. Tuition refunds will not be considered if the student has received a grade other than a "W'.
