UT Course Schedule, Summer 1996 Fees and Deposits

This section describes policies on the refunding of fees. For fee amounts, see Tuition, Fees, and Deposits.

Fee Adjustments

Section 54.006(e) of the Texas Education Code requires that the University refund tuition and fees paid by a sponsor, donor, or scholarship to the source rather than directly to the student who has withdrawn, if the funds were made available through the University.

Refunds for withdrawing from the University during the long session.

Official withdrawal date Percentage refunded
Prior to the first class day 100% less $15 matriculation fee
During the first five class days 80%
During the second five class days 70%
During the third five class days 50%
During the fourth five class days 25%
After the fourth five class days None

Refunds for withdrawing from the University during the summer session.

Official withdrawal date Percentage refunded
Prior to the first class day 100% less $15 matriculation fee
During the first, second, or third class day 80%
During the fourth, fifth, or sixth class day 50%
After the sixth class day None

Refund percentages apply to tuition and required fees. Students withdrawn by the University because of a returned check are assessed a matriculation fee. This fee enables the University to recover a portion of the processing costs of registration for students allowed a full refund. The fee is not assessed when the University initiates the withdrawal of a student for scholastic reasons or course cancellations.

Withdrawal refunds for the fall and spring semesters and summer session are based on the student's schedule as of the effective withdrawal date. A student withdrawn by the University for scholastic or other reasons will receive a full refund of fees paid that semester. Adds/drops will be considered appropriately in calculating withdrawal refunds. (Note: In some cases a student could receive two refund checks: one based on dropped courses and one based on withdrawal percentages for remaining courses.)

A student who withdraws after receiving any cash payment from the Office of Student Financial Services may be required to make full or partial repayment. Funds received through the Federal College Work-Study Program are not subject to repayment. Students should contact the Office of Student Financial Services for information regarding repayment obligations.

A student who withdraws as a result of being called to active military service may choose to receive a refund of tuition and fees for the semester or, under certain conditions, to be assigned an incomplete (symbol X) in each course, or to be assigned a final grade as determined by the instructor.

Tuition and Fee Billing will initiate refunds for all eligible students who submit approved withdrawal petitions to the Office of the Registrar. Refunds are issued no earlier than thirty days after the date the student paid the initial tuition and fee bill. Refunds will be sent to the address specified on the withdrawal petition.

Refunds for dropped courses. One hundred percent refund of tuition and required fees will be made for courses dropped during the first twelve class days. No refund is made for courses dropped after the twelfth class day (fourth class day for the summer session).

Additional fee assessment for added courses. The full amount of tuition and required fees for added courses will be billed to the student regardless of the date added.

Miscellaneous optional fee refund policies and procedures. Refunds for the Cactus yearbook, Peregrinus yearbook, and the Official Directory may be applied for at the Texas Student Publications Office.

Parking permit refunds may be requested at the Parking and Traffic Office.

Locker/basket and shower fee refunds may be applied for at the Recreational Sports Center. A full refund will be granted if requested before the locker or basket is checked out; a partial refund, based on the number of weeks remaining in the semester, may be authorized if requested after the basket or locker is issued.
