Refund Policies

Cancellation

Students who advance register or arena register and subsequently decide not to attend UM must notify their School/Program, in writing,  before the first day of instruction. If the School/Program has not received a request for cancellation by 5:00 p.m.  before the first day of instruction, the University will assume the student plans to attend and accepts his/her financial obligation.

After the first day of instruction, students who wish to terminate their registration must submit an APPLICATION FOR WITHDRAWAL to their School/Program. Students are liable for all charges applicable at the time of withdrawal.

Withdrawal

Any student compelled to leave the University prior to the conclusion of the semester must file an APPLICATION FOR WITHDRAWAL, bearing the proper signatures, with their School/Program. A withdrawal is not official until this is done. Each School/Program will determine the percent of refund and forward the withdrawal request to the Office of Records and Registration for processing. Refunds are based on percent of attendance.

A student who withdraws during the semester and does not file an APPLICATION FOR WITHDRAWAL with their School/Program, will receive marks of failure in all courses and will forfeit the right to any refund to which he/she would otherwise be entitled.
