For specific refund dates, please refer to the Academic and Event Calendar.
The following refund policy, established by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, is applicable to general fees and tuition when a student withdraws from the institution.
- If a class is changed by the administration, a full refund is made.
- Refunds are figured from the official beginning of school and not from the date of enrollment.
- Students must officially withdraw from a class before any refund can be made.
- No refunds will be made after the refund period has ended.
- Refunds will be reduced by any amount owed to the college.
- The application for admission fee is non-refundable.
ENROLLMENT CHANGES DURING THE NONRESTRICTIVE DROP/ADD PERIOD
Full Refunds for Dropped Courses
Courses added during the nonrestrictive drop/add period will cause a tuition/fee recalculation. Full refunds are issued for courses dropped during the nonrestrictive drop/add period.
ENROLLMENT CHANGES AFTER THE DROP/ADD PERIOD
No Refunds for Dropped Courses
Full refunds are not issued for courses dropped after the drop/add period.
NO AUTOMATIC CANCELLATIONS
Classes will NOT be automatically cancelled for non-payment or non-attendance. The student will be responsible for payment of tuition and fees unless an official drop form is completed by the official required dates published in the Academic Calendar.
If a drop is requested AFTER the official drop date, it will be processed as a withdrawal, which will result in the student still owing for the cost of the course and receiving a W as a grade for the course.
