Student Accounts' Policy on the Reduction of Charges
(Fall and Spring Semesters only)
Undergraduate students must notify the Center for Student Success or the Registrar (Graduate Students notify the Graduate Studies Office) in person, in writing, or by telephone of their intention to withdraw from an individual course, all classes for the semester, or the program. Reduction of tuition charges will be determined based on this date of notification. Continued class attendance or academic contact after this date will cause this later date to be considered as the official withdrawal date. Dates for determining reduction of fall and spring tuition charges are as follows:
- Withdrawal within the 1st week of classes - 100% reduction
- Withdrawal within the 2nd week of classes - 90% reduction
- Withdrawal within the 3rd week of classes - 80% reduction
- Withdrawal within the 4th week of classes - 50% reduction
- Withdrawal within the 5th and 6th week of classes - 25% reduction
For full time undergraduate students, the first Friday of the semester is the last day to reduce credit load (drop from full to part-time) without full tuition liability.
Reduction of room charges is based on a prorata basis during the first week. Room charge reduction is calculated the same as tuition reduction after the first week.
Reduction of board charges is based on a prorata basis. However, no reduction will be granted after the sixth week of the term.
Note: Nazareth College scholarships and grants are prorated using the same reduction schedule as tuition.
Recipients of Federal student aid who withdraw from all classes in a semester (term withdrawal) earn eligibility for Federal student aid on a daily proportional basis up until 60% of the semester has passed. All days during the semester (except for breaks of 5 days or more and their attendant weekends) are counted. If a student has not earned all of their Federal assistance, funds are returned to Federal Programs in the following order: Federal Direct Subsidized Stafford Loans, Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loans, Federal Perkins Loans, Federal Direct PLUS Loans, Direct Graduate PLUS Loans, Federal Pell Grants, Federal SEOG, Federal TEACH Grant, other Title IV assistance.
No reduction in tuition, room and board, or course fees is made in the case of late entrance, absence or dismissal.
Refunds will be processed by the original method of payment.
