University Refund Policy

The tuition and fee refund policy for students withdrawing from WIU is based on weeks completed and is outlined in the undergraduate catalog under "University Refund/Credit Policy". Refunds range from 100% on or before the 10th class day of Fall and Spring semesters to a 30% refund. Summer Session refund time periods vary and are published in the Summer Session Class Schedule - summer session tuition and fee refund policies provide for a similar percentage refund as during the regular academic year.

Students who received Title IV financial aid (i.e. Pell, Direct Loan, etc.) will not receive refund disbursements unless credit remains after "unearned Title IV funds" are returned to the respective aid programs. This is according to regulations specified in the Federal Return of Funds Policy.
