For the purpose of refunds, where registration has been completed, the student shall be considered to be in continuous attendance up to and including the date of submission of proper notice of withdrawal. The notice of withdrawal must be addressed to the Dean of the particular school. Ceasing to attend or giving notice to an instructor does not constitute proper notice. The allowed percentage of refund shall be based upon the postmark or upon the date the notice of withdrawal is received.

The refund percentage will be multiplied by the total number of registered credit hours subject to withdrawal for the given term. Once the credit hours have been reduced by the refund percentage, the resulting sum will then be subject to the appropriate tuition and fees for that credit level. If the resulting credit level qualifies for a reduced tuition charge, a credit will be applied to the student account. Not all withdrawals within the refund period will result in a credit. The University recognizes that rare and extraordinary circumstances may justify an exception to these terms. For information on the procedure for requesting an appeal, contact your Program Director’s or Dean’s Office. Requests for such an exception to policy must be submitted no later than thirty calendar days after the first class day of the subsequent term (e.g., a request for the spring semester must be submitted no later than thirty days after the first class day of the first summer session). While reasonable appeals will be considered, the University is under no obligation to take any course of action that would result in a refund, removal of charges, or credit.

La Salle University uses federal regulations to determine the refund of federal financial aid funds to the federal government. A copy of this federal refund calculation is available in Student Financial Services.
