One of our commitments to you is to help you manage your debt. If you have borrowed the maximum amount of aid available to you for direct and indirect costs and require additional funding for education-related expenses (e.g., car repairs, out-of-pocket medical expenses, increase in housing costs, etc.), you can pursue a Cost of Attendance Appeal to keep your borrowing in check.
Withdrawal from UNE will affect your financial aid eligibility. The Tuition Refund Policy for your program will determine the percentage of tuition refunded based on the date of your withdrawal. Please see below the policies according to your program:
- Tuition Refund Policy for Professional Programs (COM, DMD, PharmD)
- Tuition Refund Policy for all other Graduate Programs
If your program track includes summer enrollment, aid for the summer term will be factored in. If your program does not typically include summer enrollment and you plan to take courses in the summer, you will need to contact Student Financial Services to determine your financial aid eligibility.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. Once students are enrolled at UNE, in accordance with FERPA, we will need to have written permission from students who wish to grant family members or significant others access to specifics on financial aid or student accounts. A student signing and submitting an Authorization for Release of Information will be giving permission to our staff to engage in email and phone conversations with designated individuals about their UNE financial information. The student must complete this requirement which is a link through their U-Online account.
