Refund Policy

In the event of a student‘s complete withdrawal from the university for a particular enrollment period, refunds/repayments are calculated according to the Higher Education Act and its subsequent modifications. Campbell University will comply fully with federal regulations as required. This method will be used to determine refunds/repayments for Title IV aid as well as state and institutional aid. This includes students who do not follow the university‘s policy for official withdrawal. 

To withdraw officially from the University during a semester, a student is required to complete an official Withdrawal Form available in the Student Life Office (2nd Floor of the Wallace Student Center). The Withdrawal Form must be completed with proper signatures obtained, and turned into the Registrar‘s Office for placement in the student‘s permanent file. Failure to withdraw properly will result in a non-prorated reassessment of charges to the student account. 

Upon completion of the Withdrawal Form, the Registrar‘s Office updates class registration as a withdrawal from the University denoting the ―Withdrawal Effective Date‖ provided on the form. The Business Office verifies all classes have been updated accordingly and reassesses student tuition and fee charges. Housing and meal plan assignments are reviewed to ensure their correct reassessment.

A refund is prorated at 5% increments with no refund available after 60% of usage. Exceptions for students receiving medical withdrawals approved by the Vice President for Student Life are considered for refund at a percent of usage beyond 60%. Tuition and fees proration schedule is as follows:

The Business Office is responsible for the reassessment of student account charges; however, it is the responsibility of the Financial Aid Office to ensure financial aid awards have been evaluated and reassessed accordingly. The Business Office reserves the right to hold refund of credit balances until the Financial Aid Office has evaluated and approved the release of funds awarded to students that withdraw from the University.
