DROPPED COURSES - refunds of applicable tuition and fees will be made for
courses from which students drop within the first twelve class days of a
long session semester or an appropriately shorter period for a summer
session term, provided the student remains enrolled for that semester or
term. Refund of tuition for dropped courses will be made only if the
original payment exceeds the established minimum amount.
REFUNDING FOR STUDENT IN TITLE IV PROGRAMS - As an institution participating in programs under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 as amended ("Act"), the University of Texas at El Paso is required to refund unearned tuition, fees, room and board, and other charges to certain students attending the institution for the first time who have received a grant, a loan, or work assistance under Title IV of the Act or whose parents have received a loan on their behalf under 20 U.S.C. Section 1087-2. The refund is required if the student does not register for, withdraws from, or otherwise fails to complete the period of enrollment for which the financial assistance was intended. No refund is required if the student withdraws after a point in time that is sixty percent of the period of enrollment for which the charges were assessed. A refund of tuition, fees, room and board, and other charges will be determined for students who withdraw prior to this time. The refund is the larger of the amount provided for in Section 54.006, Texas Education Code or a pro rata refund calculated pursuant to Section 484B of the Act. Please note, if the student charges were paid by Title IV funds, a portion or all of the refund will be returned to these programs.
