Tuition and Fees Refunds Policy

Refund policies will vary depending on the academic calendar and university program you are enrolled in. See below for specific refund policies between the Standard Calendar, 10-week Accelerated Calendar and Online Programs.

Semester tuition, student body and technology infrastructure fee refunds for students at the McMinnville or Portland Campuses who withdraw from all courses during a regular semester before the end of the semester shall follow the printed schedules. The tuition refund is determined by the date the student notifies the university in writing (or submitted online) in accordance with the university withdrawal procedures of his or her decision to withdraw, not by the date the student stops attending classes.

  • Certain fees shall be exempt from this refund policy. These fees include various course-related fees (see Refunds: Various Course-Related Fees), and any other fees deemed appropriate by the university.

All tuition, student body and technology infrastructure fees for a semester will be refunded if the university is notified in writing before the beginning of classes for that semester. Otherwise, for fall, spring, and summer, the following schedules are in effect if the university is notified in writing on or before the dates listed below.

See the OCE section of the catalog for the OCE refund schedule, which applies only to McMinnville and Portland students in Summer term taking only Online courses. Otherwise, the refund schedule below applies.
