Policy

Refund of University tuition and fees will be made on the basis of the official withdrawal of the student or their provisional admission is cancelled. Refer to chart below for the schedule for refund of tuition and fees.  ("Days of classes" are days on which regular classes are held.)

No refunds will be processed for at least three weeks after the first day of class.

Refunds will be applied to any existing indebtedness to the University prior to disbursement.

Reductions and inceases of tuition and fees resulting from student schedule changes will be refunded or charged in accordance with the schedule below.

The application fee, registration fee, late registration fee, mandatory/required fees, and international student fee are not refundable.

The application for graduation fee is non-refundable and not transferable to a future semester. In the event that an applicant fails to complete requirements for graduation, this fee will be forfeited and the student will be required to submit a new Application for Candidacy form along with the applicable fee.

Students attending LSUA and receiving Title IV assistance (Federal Financial Aid) will have a portion of their tuition refunded to Title IV if they withdraw from the University during the first 60% of the enrollment period. Students who withdraw during the first 60% of the enrollment period will be considered to have not earned all or a portion of the financial aid funds they received, and will incur a financial obligation for any unearned funds received.
 
If you register for classes and do not attend, you must resign from the University and/or formally drop the classes not attended in accordance with established deadlines, or you will be held responsible for the tuition and fees owed. ***Do not assume your schedule will be purged.***

Non-Refund of Tuition and Fees
Students should note the following:

  • Stopping payment on a check used to pay tuition and fees is not sufficient notice of withdrawal from courses and will not release the student from financial obligations for those courses.
  • Merely discontinuing class attendance is not considered to be a formal resignation from the University. Students who discontinue class attendance and who fail to follow the established resignation procedure will be held responsible for all tuition and fees.
  • Dropping courses or withdrawing from the University does not relieve a student of the responsibility for unmet financial obligations to the University. Students enrolled in a payment plan will be required to continue making payments until the non-refundable portion of their account is paid in full.
