A partial refund may be made to students who withdraw from Stevenson University within the first 28 calendar days of fall or spring semester. Any credit balance remaining after these adjustments to the student's account will be refunded. Tuition and disbursed institutional aid will be adjusted in accordance with the Tuition Refund Policy within the first 28 calendar days of each semester. Federal financial aid will be adjusted in accordance with the Federal Return of Title IV calculation. The Title IV calculation is based on the day of attendance as a percentage of total days in the semester until 60%.

Refunds are computed as of the date on which a written request for withdrawal is received in the Registrar’s Office. Registration fees are not refundable. Tuition and fees are charged based on course loads as of the last day of add/drop each semester. Charges will not be adjusted if courses are dropped after the last day to add/drop. Tuition refunds will only be processed if a student withdraws from the University within the first 28 calendar days of the fall or spring semester. No adjustment of semester charges will be granted to students who are suspended or expelled for academic or disciplinary reasons.

Students receiving financial aid should review the refund policies described in the Financial Aid sections: Disbursement of Awards and Return of Title IV Funds Policy.

Financing Options

Stevenson University offers a payment plan option through Tuition Management Systems (TMS). Payment plans are the sensible approach to paying education expenses. They allow for smaller, affordable payments instead of paying the balance in one large lump sum.

The plan requires regularly scheduled payments over a five month period for each semester. The enrollment fee is $50. This is not a loan program; there are no interest or finance charges. For additional information, contact Tuition Management Systems directly at or by phone at 800-356-8329.
