Refund Of Charges For Students Who Withdraw

Refund Of Charges For Students Who Withdraw

All students withdrawing from NNU must complete the “Request for Withdrawal from School” form available from the Office of Academic Advising.

Exceptions to the refund schedule listed below will be considered for cases of medical or other hardship on a case-by-case basis upon request of the student and submission of appropriate documentation.

Tuition, Fees, Room and Board: Students who withdraw from school prior to or on the last day to add courses for the semester shall receive a refund of 100% of tuition and fees charged. Students withdrawing after the last day to add courses for the semester shall receive a prorated refund of tuition and fees for the first 60% of the semester. Room and board charges for the semester are refunded on a prorated basis. The withdrawal date is defined as the earlier of: (1) the date that the student began the withdrawal process or officially notified NNU of intent to withdraw, or (2) for those students who leave school without notifying an appropriate NNU official, (a) the midpoint of the semester, or (b) the last day of documented “academic-related activity”. The Director of Academic Advising determines the official date of withdrawal.

Refund Distribution: Students who withdraw from NNU during a semester and have received federal financial aid shall be reviewed for federal financial aid eligibility at the time of withdrawal. When a refund to federal programs is required, the following refund distribution will be used:

  1. Unsubsidized Federal Direct Loan
  2. Subsidized Federal Direct Loan
  3. Federal Perkins Loan
  4. Federal PLUS Loan
  5. Federal Pell Grant
  6. Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
  7. Leveraging Education Assistance Partnership Grants (LEAP)
  8. Other Title IV Aid Programs
  9. Other Federal Sources of Aid
  10. Other State, Private or Institutional Aid
  11. Parents or other third party, and then the Student

Refunds to NNU’s institutional aid programs are based on the tuition and fees withdrawal rate; i.e., if one-half tuition and fees are refunded, one-half of any institutional aid will be refunded to institutional programs. Note: additional policies may apply to refund of NNU institutional aid.
