Part Time Student Refund Policies

"Day of Service" volunteers The following is Southern Connecticut State University's refund policies for part-time students.

Part-time students who wish to receive course refunds must formally withdraw from the course(s). It is the student's responsibility to complete the Add/Drop form and to submit it to the Registrar's Office for processing. The amount of the refund is based on the date the student withdraws, not whether the student attended class or on how many classes the student attended. The registration  fee is not refundable*.

If you made a credit card payment your refund will be credited back to the credit card used when making the payment. All other refunds for non-matriculated part-time students will be issued a paper check refund.

Matriculated part time students must select their refund preference, otherwise their refund may be significantly delayed. Click here to learn more about selecting your refund preference.

NOTE: ALL REFUNDS IN THE FORM OF A CHECK ARE MAILED TO THE STUDENT'S PERMANENT MAILING ADDRESS ON FILE WITH THE REGISTRAR'S OFFICE.
