Tuition and Fee Refund PolicySection 54.006 of the Education Code sets the policy for refund of tuition and mandatory fees to students who withdraw from the University. That policy for withdrawals is as follows:
If a student withdraws during a fall or spring semester or a summer term of 10 weeks or longer the refund is as follows:
If a student withdraws from a term or session of five weeks or less, the refund is as follows:
The refund is calculated on the total cost of tuition and mandatory fees charged for the courses in which the student was enrolled prior to withdrawal.
Section 54.006 (b-1) states: If a student has not paid the total amount of the tuition and mandatory fees charged to the student by the institution or unit for the courses in which the student is enrolled by the date the student withdraws from the institution or unit, instead of issuing the student a refund in the amount required under Subsection (b), the institution or unit may credit the amount to be refunded toward the payment of the outstanding tuition and mandatory fees owed by the student. The institution or unit shall issue a refund to the student if any portion of the amount to be refunded remains after the outstanding tuition and mandatory fees have been paid.
