Tuition Refunds and How to sign up for eRefunds


Tuition Refund Policy

Students who completely withdraw during the late registration (add) period will be entitled to a 100% refund of their tuition. Student activity fees will be refunded upon complete withdrawal from all classes at all UH campuses during the late registration period.  Those who partially withdraw (drop one or more, but not all, classes) during the add period will be entitled to a full refund of their tuition but not their student activity fees.  The late registration period varies at each institution.  Please check the academic calendar for each institution for specific dates.

For semester-long courses, the refund period is deemed to be the first three weeks of the semester. After the late registration period ends, a refund rate of 50% will be applied to tuition for withdrawals made in the remaining week(s) of the refund period. However, there will be no refunds of student activity fees.

For non-semester length credit classes, the refund period shall be 20% of the instructional period. The instructional period includes all calendar days beginning from the first day of instruction and ending on the last day of instruction. No refunds will be made for courses where the instructional period is 10 days or less, except before the first day instruction. After the late registration period (add period), a refund rate of 50% will be applied to tuition for withdrawals during the remainder of the refund period.
