Non-Degree Student Refunds

Refunds will be determined by the transmission date and time of fax, online or email notifications, and by the postal cancellation date or verified sending date for mail or express delivery service notifications. Processing a refund may take up to four weeks once it is approved.

Refunds for Credit Course Fees

While individual instructors may require class attendance and indeed use it for determining part of a grade, the University has no general policy that requires or mandates that students must attend classes in the courses for which they are registered. Accordingly, non-attendance in class ordinarily is not sufficient reason to request an exception to the published policy.

The refund schedule below applies to credit course fees when a student cancels a registration or drops a class. It also applies to the semester dates and not to the actual meeting hours of a particular class.

Please Note: There is a $65 non-refundable registration fee during the winter and summer intersession. During the fall and spring semester a $65 non-refundable cancellation fee will be charged if you withdraw or cancel.

Summer and Winter Intersession Course Fee Refund Policy

A full-refund will be issued if a class is dropped by the last posted day to drop for a given summer/winter session, less the non-refundable summer/winter enrollment fee (currently $65 for non-degree students and $45 for matriculated UConn students).

There will be no refund after the last posted day to drop for a given session. Final drop dates for all summer and winter sessions are posted on the Summer and Winter Session website.

Please note that withdrawal from a class may affect your summer or winter financial aid status.

It is your responsibility to initiate withdrawal from a summer or winter class. Non-attendance at classes or non-payment of fees does not constitute a withdrawal or relieve you of your financial obligation.
