This policy applies to all UNMC students.

Policy Statement

Refunds are computed using the effective date on the withdrawal application or the “drop and add” form when completed and submitted to the Registrar. Students who withdraw or drop are not relieved from the payment of the balance due. Refunds will be applied first to unpaid balances. Any remaining balance or obligation to any University service must be paid. Failure to do so may prevent registration for future semesters or sessions. (Note: Refunds are not made for fees unless a student drops a course during the 100% periods of the refund schedule.) Students who receive financial aid and withdraw during the refund period may have to repay all or a portion of the financial aid received. A financial aid recipient should contact the Office of Financial Aid prior to withdrawal.
