According to the TCU Withdrawal and Return of Funds Policy, Students who withdraw from all classes before the first class day for each term are given a 100% tuition refund and classes do not appear on the academic record.

Beginning the first class day of each term, students are liable for tuition charges unless they take official action during the tuition cancellation period to drop classes. The Academic Calendar publishes the tuition cancellation dates for 100%, 75%, 50% and 25% refunds for each term. The last date to withdraw from a class is also published in the Academic Calendar for each term.

Tuition refunds are only available in instances of official withdrawal. Unofficial withdrawals may result in unpaid balances for which the student is responsible.

For information regarding withdrawals, federal financial aid, and tuition refunds, please contact the Office of Financial Aid. For information regarding refunds on non-Title IV credit balances on enrolled student accounts, please see the information from Student Financial Services.

Tuition Refund Insurance and Undergraduate Courses

All undergraduate students enrolled for 12 hours or more are automatically enrolled in the Tuition Refund Plan. The charge for the plan  is included on the first bill of each fall and spring semester. The Tuition Refund Plan does not cover summer sessions.  Beginning 24 hours after enrollment students who do not wish to participate in the Plan can opt out of the coverage for the entire academic year through the online Waiver Tuition Refund Plan icon at, Student Services tile.

The deadline for opting out of the Tuition Refund Plan is 5 PM CDT on the 5th class day of each semester.  The charge for the Plan will be removed from the student’s account, and the credit can be seen on the next processed statement.
