    Refund policies are established by, and are subject to change by, the Legislature of the State of Texas and are applicable to withdrawals and dropped courses. Refunds of tuition, laboratory fees, general fees, and student services fees will be made under the following conditions.

    Students withdrawing during a long semester will be refunded applicable tuition and fees as follows:

      Prior to the first class day 100% less $15.00
      During first five class days 80%
      During second five class days 70%
      During third five class days 50%
      During fourth five class days 25%
      After fourth five class days No Refund

    Students Withdrawing during a summer term will be refunded applicable tuition and fees as follows:

      Prior to the first class day 100% less $15.00
      During the first, second, or third class day 80%
      During the fourth, fifth, or sixth class day 50%
      Seventh day of class and thereafter No Refund

    - Percentage of refund is based on total tuition and fees, not on amount paid.
    - Unless you do a complete withdrawal from school prior to the first official class day, you are responsible for a percentage of total tuition and fees. Please con tact the Student Business Services Office at 747-5116 or 747-5105 if you have any questions.

    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.
    Refunds of tuition and fees paid in the student's behalf by a sponsor, donor, or scholarship will be made to the source rather than directly to the student who has withdrawn or dropped courses, if the funds were made available through the University. Students who withdraw or drop courses must, in order to qualify for a refund, surrender all applicable privileges, including identification cards and athletic and cultural entertainment tickets. Refunds provided for above will be granted if applied for by the end of the semester in which the withdrawal or drop was appropriately completed. Refunds for students who owe balances in deferred payment of tuition/fees will be credited to the student's account, reduced by the amount of any unpaid charges and a reasonable administrative fee not to exceed the lesser of 5% of the tuition, fees, room and board, and other charges that were assessed for the enrollment period, or one hundred dollars.

    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.
