Withdrawing From Courses

Tuition refunds are made in accordance with the schedule below only after the student notifies the Registrar’s Office of his/her intention to drop or withdraw.  If room or board charges apply, these charges will be based on the prorated period of occupancy during each term of residency.  All other fees and charges are non-refundable.  If charges have been paid by check, refunds are not made until the check has cleared the bank.  In addition, refunds are not made until the conclusion of the published refund as described in the Refund Schedule below.

Through the 7th day* from the start date of the term 100% less $200
From the 8th day* through the 14th day from the start date of the term 50%

Registration is considered a contract binding on the student.  If the student officially notifies Faulkner University of the withdrawals, the withdrawal date is the date, as determined by the university, that the student began the withdrawal process or otherwise provided official notification to the Registrar’s Office, in writing, of his/her intention to withdraw.  Scholarships will be adjusted at the same rate tuition is refunded.  No combination of awards, however, may result in a refund of more than 100% of the student’s total charges.
