CHARGE & REFUND POLICY
Before the start of classes for the term, the student should select "will not be attending" in myFramingham.
On or after start of classes, the student must complete a “Notification of Withdrawal” form and submit it to the Office of the Registrar.
No refund will be issued unless a “Notification of Withdrawal” form is completed.
For a student withdrawing from the University, the charge percentages (listed in All About Tuition & Fees) apply to tuition, fees, residence hall, and meal plan charges. Excluded from this policy are: the tuition deposit, the residence hall deposit, the resident parking deposit and fee, the returned check fee and any other use or penalty fees which are non-refundable.
All refunds will be made by check payable to the student unless an eRefund account has been set up in the eBill. The eRefund direct deposit puts the refund money in your account. Set this up on the eRefunds tab in myFramingham.
Based on the official date of withdrawal from the University, you will be charged the corresponding percentage as listed in All About Tuition & Fees.
Please note that Federal regulations require that if you have received Federal financial aid funds, you will only be eligible to receive the same percentage of these funds based upon your official date of withdrawal. If you do not submit a “Notification of Withdrawal” form and the University determines that you have withdrawn, you will only be eligible to receive up to 50% of your Federal financial aid funds. You will be responsible to pay any balance due the University if financial aid funds are reduced.
