Tuition Refund Policy

Students who withdraw from UCONN Schools of Medicine and Dental Medicine during an academic term will receive a tuition refund based on the institutional schedule. All students who separate are subjected to the School’s Refund Policy.  Tuition refunds will be calculated based on the date that all requirements are completed to finalize the withdrawal.

Withdrawal through the first calendar week of the term:   90% of Tuition Only

Second calendar week of the term:  60% of Tuition Only

Third and fourth calendar week of the term:  50% of Tuition Only

Fifth through Eighth calendar week of the term:  25% of Tuition Only

After the 8th week of the term:  No Refund

There is no refund of fees.

Financial Aid is awarded to students contingent upon completion of the session. Federal financial aid recipients who withdraw prior to completing 60% of the session will have unearned aid that, by law, must be returned to the Federal Government.  These amounts must be returned to the University for processing.  Failure to return funds will result in a charge on the student’s account. If 60% of the session has been completed prior to withdrawing, 100% of the federal aid for that session will have been earned and the financial aid package will remain in place.

A federal pro‐rata policy is in effect for those students leaving the University who have accepted Title IV (Federal Stafford Loans) or Title VII (Health Profession Loans) funds. This federal requirement determines the amount of federal funds that a student is entitled to by calculating the number of days attended divided by the number of days in the session. This percentage times the TOTAL amount of Stafford Loans remains credited to the student’s account. The amount the student is not entitled to, is returned to the lender.  This is required regardless of other grants or scholarships that have been awarded and used to pay for tuition and fees. Students who owe a balance to the school are billed after monies have been returned to the lender. Any grants and scholarships will remain credited to the student’s account. The net amount owed on the student’s account after all applicable charges, returns, refunds, and credits will be billed to the student.

Students are advised to carefully consider the above tuition information as withdrawing after the first week of class may create a financial obligation which, if not cleared by the end of the academic year, will be referred to an outside collection agency.

In certain other instances, including illness, full refunds or cancellations of charges may be made at the discretion of the Dean, provided that the interruption or termination of the student’s program takes place prior to the start of classes. A student inducted into military service will receive a prorated refund or cancellation of charges based on his or her date of separation. The student in this situation must furnish the Offices of the Registrar and the Bursar with a copy of the orders to active duty, showing this to be the reason for leaving the School.
