Refund of Institutional Tuition, Room and Board Charges

LMU operates with an annual budget developed through advance planning built around the institutional mission and goals, including financial obligations to faculty and others who provide necessary services essential for operation. In the event a student drops one or more classes, withdraws, or is administratively dismissed from the University for disciplinary or financial reasons after registration is completed and prior to the end of a semester of enrollment, the student's eligibility for a refund of tuition and/or room and board will be pro-rated as indicated by refund policy. A student must complete a Change of Schedule form, obtained from the Office of the Registrar for dropping one or more classes. Any situation in which all classes are dropped is considered to be a withdrawal from the University. Any notification of withdrawal and request of refund must be made in writing. Should the student fail to officially withdraw, all semester charges will become immediately due and payable.

The official withdrawal process begins in the Office of Student Services. A withdrawal form must be completed and all the necessary signatures obtained. Oral requests do not constitute official notification. The official date of withdrawal used to compute the refund is determined by the Office of Finance.

Refund Schedule

Applicable institutional charges for fall and spring semesters will be refunded according to the following schedule:

Through the first official day of classes 100%
After the first official day of classes & during the first week of the semester 90%
During the second week of the semester 75%
During the third week of the semester 50%
During the fourth week of the semester 25%
After the fourth week of the semester 0%
No refund of institutional charges will be made after the fourth week of the semester.
Specific dates affecting the schedule of refunds appear in the Class Schedule and/or the Office of Student Affairs, the Registrar's Office and the Office of Finance.
Refund schedules pertaining to summer and mini terms are adjusted to the varying length of the terms.

Reimbursement of Funds

The Return of Title IV Funds (federal): The Higher Education Amendments of 1998 regulate how colleges and universities handle Title IV funds when a recipient withdraws from school. This policy is separate from the university's refund of institutional charges. The return of Title IV funds includes Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants, PLUS Loans, Perkins Loans and Stafford Loans. The policy states that up through the 60% point in each semester a pro-rata schedule will be used to determine how much Title IV aid the student has earned. For example, if the student has attended 31% of the enrollment period, the student has earned 31% of his/her Title IV aid, and 69% of the aid must be returned to the federal government. After the 60% point in the semester, the student has earned 100% of the aid for which the student was eligible. Additional information on the return of Title IV funds may be obtained from the Office of Admissions and Student Advancement.

The official date of the withdrawal is the date that the Office of Admissions and Student Advancement receives the student's written request for a leave. The percentage of time completed in the enrollment period is determined by dividing the number of days completed by the number of days in the enrollment period. If 60% of the semester has been completed there is no return of Title IV funds.
