Tuition Refund Policy

The following rules apply to tuition refunds for dropping a class:

Drop Period 100 % refund (1st class meeting- 1st week of term)
After Drop Period to 28 days 50 % refund (4th class meeting- 4th week of term)
After 28 days 0 % refund

Students on financial aid who drop below their original number of registered hours or who withdraw completely should consult the Student One Stop Center to inquire how the reduction of credit hours will affect their financial aid award.

Students who are Title IV aid recipients will have refunds and repayments distributed as prescribed by federal regulations.  The distribution of funds is listed below:

  1. Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan
  2. Federal Direct Grad Plus Loan
  3. Other federal, state, private, or institutional sources of aid
  4. The student

The amount of Title IV aid to be returned is equal to the total Title IV aid that was disbursed for the semester multiplied by the percentage of the term not attended.

If a portion of a refund remains after returning funds to the appropriate program(s) from which the student received assistance or if the student owes a repayment of non-institutional funds and if there are unpaid charges owed to Wilmington College, the college will automatically credit the student account with this remaining refund amount.

Examples of the refund policy are available to all prospective and currently enrolled students by contacting the Student One Stop Center.
