In the event a student must withdraw for medical or other verified reasons, two types of tuition adjustment may be made: a credit to the student’s account for the current or next semester and/or a refund of that credit balance. If a course is cancelled, students receive a 100% refund. Refunds will be granted at 100% for all tuition and fees, other than a book and supply assessment for books, supplies, materials and kits which are not returnable because of use, within 3 working days from the student signing an enrollment agreement or contract.

Brenau’s institutional refund policy related to tuition charges is as follows:

100%if written notice of withdrawal is received by the last day of drop/add.
50%if the student withdraws after the last day of drop/add before the end of the first 25% of the enrollment period.
25%if the student withdraws between 25% and 50% of the enrollment period.
No refundif the student withdraws after the first 50% of the enrollment period. This is also the last day to receive a “W”.

All students receiving federal Title IV assistance who drop some or all classes will receive a tuition adjustment based on a variation of the policy as required by the U.S. Department of Education. If no Title IV funds are returned by the school, the university refund policy will be in affect using the date of withdrawal noted on the R2T4 document.

Refund of Room and Board

Students will receive 100% credit for room and board charges only when they have withdrawn prior to the first day of the semester. After the first day of the semester, room and board charges will be refunded based on the number of weeks remaining in the semester after the week of withdrawal. No adjustments for room and board will be made after the last day to drop courses in the 25% refund period. Please refer to the Accounting Office “Refund Policy” for the specific date for each semester. Refunds of room and board for federal financial aid recipients will be calculated along with tuition charges according to the return of Title IV funds policy. To review the Title IV funds policy, please refer to the online catalog section: Undergraduate Financial Information-Tuition and Fees.
