Refunds and Overpayments
Overpayment of account balances is highly discouraged. If a payment is $3,000 or more over the amount billed for the semester, the over payment amount will be applied as a prepayment to the following term. Refunds may be given for amounts less than $3,000 once per term if requested in writing. No refunds will be given until after the semester add/drop date for your program.
