Important Changes to Refunds

Effective with Fall 2016, there is an important change being made to the refund policy for individual classes dropped after the schedule adjustment period (add/drop week).

After the schedule adjustment period ends, a student must completely withdraw from all registered courses in order to receive any refund of tuition and fees. Fairmont State University will no longer refund tuition and fees for individual classes dropped after the end of the schedule adjustment period.   Students who drop courses below fulltime status during the adjustment period, and remain so after the adjustment period, will continue to be responsible for 10% of the tuition and fees for the courses dropped below 12 hours.

The schedule adjustment period is defined as the first week of classes in the fall and spring semesters, and typically the first three days of classes for each summer session.  For Fall 2016, the schedule adjustment period is August 15 through August 19.

Specific refund dates and percentages for complete withdrawal are available online at:
