Refunds are available for students who cancel or withdraw
their registration within the appropriate time period. To cancel
their registration, students must notify the Office of the Registrar
before the first day of classes to avoid tuition assessment. Beginning
on the first day of classes, it will be necessary for students to
formally withdraw from the university to terminate their registration.
More information about canceling registration and withdrawing from
classes can be found at www.iastate.edu/~registrar/registration/
Tuition adjustments for all students are made for withdrawals of
registration according to the following schedule:
|Before first day of classes
|During class days 1-8
|During class days 9-20
|During class days 21-40
|After the fortieth day of classes
Students who wish to appeal tuition and fee assessment for withdrawals
should contact the fees section of the Office of the Registrar.
Decisions of the Office of the Registrar will be based on the existence
of extenuating circumstances beyond the control of the student.
Students who wish to appeal the decision of the Office of the Registrar
must do so in writing within 10 calendar days after receiving the
decision. Such appeals will then be reviewed by the Tuition Appeals
Review Committee. Students who wish to appeal the decision of the
Tuition Appeals Review Committee may make a request to do so in
writing to the Office of the Provost.
Fee refund for students who drop into light
classification (less than full-time):
100 percent if change is made during first three weeks. No adjustment
is made after the third week.
Appropriate prorated adjustments in the refund schedule are made
when partial term courses are involved.
Workshop and Short Courses Refunds: Students who drop workshops
or short courses of one or two weeks on or before the first class
meeting receive a 100% tuition adjustment for the course. No tuition
adjustment will be made after the first day of classes. Students
who drop three-week courses receive a 100% adjustment if they drop
on or before the first day of classes, a 90% adjustment if they
drop on the second day of classes, and no adjustment after the second
day of classes.
