UNE TUITION REFUND POLICIES

The University of New England's Tuition Refund Policies will determine the percentage of tuition refunded based on the date of your withdrawal and according to your program. Refunds will not be made in the case of absence, suspension, or dismissal, and fees are non-refundable. Tuition refunds for students leaving the University during a semester will be made as detailed below.
Please refer to the policy according to your student program.

Undergraduate Students

For financial aid recipients, withdrawal can affect your financial aid eligibility (“Return to Title IV”), resulting in a balance owed to the University. It is very important to contact us before withdrawing from courses/programs to discuss the impact on your financial aid, if applicable. Please refer to the Return to Title IV Policy for Undergraduate Students for more information. Please consult the Undergraduate Academic Catalog for other pertinent financial information.

Note: Any undergraduate student who intends to withdraw from the University will be required to go through the withdrawal process. The student must first see the Dean of their college to obtain the necessary forms. Verbal notice is not sufficient. For purposes of computing refunds, the date of withdrawal recorded by the Dean (after receipt of withdrawal forms from the student) shall be considered official. That official date will be used by Student Financial Services to compute refunds, if any, due to the student.

HOUSING (ROOM and BOARD) REFUND POLICIES

Room (60% of Room and Board Rate)
"Room" charges for the semester will not be refunded after the room has been occupied. If a student is able to obtain special permission to break the Residence Hall/Dining Service Contract, the University will bill 60% of a double-room rate for that semester.

Board/Meal Plan (40% of Room and Board Rate)
The “Board” portion of Housing charges is 40% of the total cost. If a student withdraws during the semester, a refund for board/meal plan charges will be prorated effective the first of the following month.

Other Fees
After registration, there shall be no refund of lab fees or other annual fees.

Maryland Residents

University of New England's Refund Policy follows the Federal Return of Title IV Aid Refund Policy for Maryland residents. If a student withdraws from UNE prior to the 60% point in the semester (based on calendar days from the first day of the semester through the last scheduled day of the semester), eligible charges due or paid will be refunded on a pro rata basis within 40 days of the termination date. Some fees are non-refundable, and therefore, not pro-rated. Fees not refunded are: General Service (one-time fee), Application (one-time fee), and Technology (charged each semester fee). Financial aid awarded (if any) will be returned to the federal, state, and University of New England programs on a pro rata basis. Outside scholarship or non-federal loan assistance will not be returned unless specifically requested by the provider. After the 60 percent point in the semester, financial aid will not be reduced for any withdrawal, nor will any refund be granted. This policy applies to all university withdrawals whether student initiated or administrative withdrawals. Students should note that withdrawal may or may not result in an actual refund of money to the student. Circumstances may occur in which the student still owes money to the University even after appropriate withdrawal credit.
