Refunds for courses dropped are based on the number of weeks in the session that the course is offered. Students will receive a 100% refund for any course dropped by the day before the session begins.

We have streamlined the process and will not require additional documentation for COVID-19 related issues. You may submit your request at any time, but in order to process COVID-19 related refunds where aid is involved, we are waiting on guidance from the State of Michigan and Federal Student Aid.
