When a student officially drops from any course or courses by filing a formal drop or withdrawal notice with the Registrar's Office and completing the process with the Finance Office, a refund of tuition will be made according to the add/drop period.

The refund policy provides for cancellation of any obligation within three working days from the date a student signs an enrollment contract or financial agreement.  Any applicable refunds shall be made within thirty days of the date that the University determines that the student has withdrawn or cancelled their contract according to CAU’s attendance and withdrawal policies.

Financial aid recipients with funds credited to your account in excess of your tuition and fees, will have a refund owed to you. Should you choose to cancel all or part of your aid, please contact your financial aid advisor immediately. Please note that, cancelling all or a portion of this aid may result in a financial obligation to the University which must be paid promptly. Failure to satisfy outstanding financial obligations will affect your ability to enroll or receive other University services.

Please ensure that your address and/or bank account information is up-to-date for efficient processing.

Return of Title IV funds

When a recipient of a Title IV grant or loan assistance withdraws from an institution during a payment period or period of enrollment in which the recipient began attendance, the institution must determine the amount of the Title IV grant or loan assistance that the student earned as of the date of withdrawal. If the amount disbursed to you is greater than the amount you earned, unearned funds must be returned in accordance with Title IV calculations. This may result in a balance owed to the University. It is your responsibility to ensure that your account is in good standing and any debt is satisfied.
