WITHDRAWAL

Withdrawal / Refund Policy is two-fold. One policy is for withdrawing from a course or courses, but staying enrolled in at least one credit for that term or session. The other policy is for withdrawal from the entire term or session, or from Cheyney University completely. Please look closely at the charts below to determine where you may fit. If you have Financial Aid, meet with them, as aid already received and disbursed, may have to be returned as not fully earned, causing you to owe back refunds or pay for charges incurred.
The refund policies listed below are based on the start of the semester or session, NOT the course start date.
The percentages below are the amounts that the charges (with the exception of the Technology Fee, which is a non-refundable fee) would be reduced or refunded by; it does not necessarily mean the student is guaranteed entitlement to a refund. The student will be responsible for the balance not refunded on the charges. If the bill has not yet been paid, the student will receive a notice of funds due, and the normal collections process will commence.
Withdrawal from a Course
Total tuition and tuition fee charges (with the exception of the technology fee, which is non-refundable) billed will be refunded (reduced) at the following rates; the difference will be the student's responsibility. A portion of, or all of, a student's aid may be returned to the lender based on the withdrawal as it was not fully earned. The amount due will then become the responsibility of the student. Students that remain within the full-time range before AND after a course withdrawal may have no financial impact. Full-time undergraduate students are 12-18 credits.

NOTE: The official date of withdrawal is the date the Registrar's Office receives written notification from the student with his/her original signature of their intent to withdrawal.

Withdrawal After First Day But Within Title IV Refund Period
If the student withdraws after the first day of classes, but prior to or equal to 60% of the number of days in the semester (not including breaks of 5 days or more), the percentage of Title IV (Federal) Aid retained will equal the number of days attended divided by the number of days in the semester. Federal regulations dictate the distribution order funds must be returned. See distribution order below.

Exceptions:
a.    The withdrawal date to determine the percentage refund for room fees will be the date of official check-out from the Residence Hall if later than the official withdrawal date.
b.    The date of withdrawal for purposes of determining Board (Meal Plan) refunds will be the date of last use, if later than the official withdrawal date.
 
We encourage students to be counseled by Financial Aid if they are financial aid recipients prior to making withdrawal decisions. We strongly urge students who receive any aid, who are considering a withdrawal from the university, speak to the Financial Aid office to confirm the implications of a withdrawal. This is so that they fully understand the financial impact of their decision. In most cases, a withdrawal will require funds to be returned to lenders, and if a student has already received a refund, they may owe those funds back to the University.
Contact Financial Aid
For additional information regarding withdrawals and leaves of absence, please contact the Registrar's Office by email, phone or in person. We encourage students to clarify all of their options and to understand the full impact of a withdrawal or leave of absence as these decisions may affect GPA, future academic matters, future financial aid eligibility and may have financial implications. Contact Registrar's Office
