Tuition Refunds

Students will be eligible for a refund of tuition, room, board and student activity fees if they have paid for the upcoming term and then decide to withdraw or take a leave of absence and they notify the Dean of Students before the term starts.

If a student leaves during the first two weeks of the term, as defined by the academic calendar; a 25% tuition refund is available:

Term                     Last day available

Fall 2014              September 26, 2014

Winter 2015         January 16, 2015

Spring 2015          April 10, 2015

If a student leaves due to illness during the first half of the term, and notifies the Dean of Students Office by 5:00PM on the Monday of mid-term break, as defined by the academic calendar; a 50% tuition refund is available:

Term                     Last day available

Fall 2014              October 20, 2014

Winter 2015         February 9, 2015

Spring 2015          May 4, 2015

Room charges will not be refunded if a student leaves after the term starts.

Board charges will be refunded for the remaining weeks of the term.

Financial aid will be reduced according to federally mandated guidelines.

Applied music fees will be refunded, with charges deducted for lessons received, only if the student notifies the department of music within the first two weeks of the term.

In the event of a national emergency all charges will be refunded pro rata to students drafted or called as military reservists unless they have attended courses a sufficient length of time to earn academic credit.

If a student wishes to transfer to another institution he or she must settle their student account in the Business Office by making necessary payments or arrangements for extension before a transcript of credits will be issued.

No refunds will be made to students suspended or dismissed from the College.

A more restrictive refund policy governs withdrawal from Carleton off-campus programs. This policy is explained in the Carleton Off-Campus Seminars Withdrawl Policy.
