Refund Policy

Refunds for dropping a course or withdrawing from the University are based on the official date of drop or withdrawal, not on the date of last attendance. Failure to attend a class does not constitute dropping or withdrawing from it. You can drop classes online, however if you intend to drop all of your classes (withdraw) you need to contact Susanne Tomillon,  at stomillo@umw.edu for withdrawal procedures.

Refunds are pro-rated depending on the date of drop or withdrawal. Please consult the reimbursement schedule determine your refund eligibility.

REFUNDS OF CREDIT BALANCES

Direct Deposit

Normally paper refund checks are sent to the student’s campus mailbox (which they share with other students), during the Fall and Spring semesters. UMW highly recommends that students sign up for direct deposit so that the funds can go directly into their bank accounts. Direct deposit can help to avoid the additional delay in both mailing and receiving a check. To register for direct deposit, please follow the instructions below. Students will receive an email when funds are transmitted, but keep in mind that it can take 3 – 4 business days from the time of transmittal and email for the funds to be deposited into your account.
