Refund Policy for Withdrawals

Notification of withdrawal and requests for refunds must be in writing. As Norwich University must make commitments to faculty and staff ahead of student enrollment, only a partial refund of fees charged will be made if a student leaves for any reason prior to the end of any semester. The following schedule for refunds, calculated from the second day classes start, will be applicable to undergraduate tuition and fees. 100% of tuition assistance funds received for a given term will be refunded to the appropriate military service up to the first day of a course.

*Housing (room) refunds for students withdrawing from school will be subject to the refund schedule above. Food costs (board) will be subject to pro-rata charges for the days a student resided on campus.

NOTE: If the semester charges were not paid in full at the time of withdrawal, a bill will be forwarded for the balance due, calculated by using the appropriate percentage. Scholarships, grants and federally funded loans will be refunded, in the appropriate ratio, using federal guidelines for financial aid, either to the university or to the agency from which the aid funds were received. In many cases, this will result in an additional amount due the university.
