Refunds

Students can expect a refund of fees associated with a summer course in the event that course is dropped in GOLD prior to the published drop deadline for that session. If all summer courses are dropped prior to the listed deadline(s), the campus-based fee will also be refunded. GOLD will automatically refund fees to the student’s BARC account within five days. The deadlines to drop with a refund for each session in Summer 2022 are listed below.

  • Session A — June 27

  • Session B — August 5

  • Session C — June 27

  • Session D — June 27

  • Session E — July 15

  • Session F — August 5

  • Session G — August 26

After the deadline has passed, refunds will not be considered except in cases of verifiable illness, accidents, death of immediate family, or university error. If a student feels their circumstances fall into one of these categories, they should submit a Refund Petition as soon as possible. Please note that the following reasons do not qualify as unforeseen or extenuating circumstances and therefore will not be eligible for an exception to the refund policy:

  • Lack of knowledge or understanding of Summer Sessions deadlines, policies, and regulations

  • Lack of knowledge of enrollment status and/or non-attendance

  • Issuance of an add code after the deadline to drop with a full refund has passed

  • Reliance on enrollment cancellations due to payment delinquency, lapsing or non-payment

  • Insufficient, delayed, and/or cancellation of financial aid award

  • Conditions or chronic illnesses that remain static and are known to the student at the time of the original registration/enrollment

  • Dissatisfaction with course(s) and/or grade received
