Refund Guidelines

 

Summer 2013

Withdrawal from the University- Full Refund of Tuition and Fees and Nonresident Tuition Fee

 

Deadline: Prior to the first day of Instruction for the earliest enrolled session

 

Eligibility: In order to receive a full refund* of tuition and fees, including nonresident tuition fee, a student must drop all classes or cancel their registration prior to the first day of instruction for the semester. Regular SF State registered and never-enrolled students must withdraw from the University by submitting a completed withdrawal card as required by the Registrar's Office at the One Stop Student Services Center. The official withdrawal procedure facilitates the refund process. Otherwise, for unofficial withdrawals and/or cancellation of classes, refund calculation will begin after July 26, 2013.

 

*Refund Calculation: Students will receive a full refund less a non-refundable administrative fee of $20.00 and the non-refundable campus service card fee of $2.00.

Important message ! Please read the following example carefully.

 

EXAMPLE

A graduate resident student enrolls for 12 units (3 units in R1, 3 units in R2 and 6 units in R3), paying the $3,369.00 Tuition Fee and $179.00 campus fees (total fees paid: $3,548.00). The student is considered an R1 combined. The student drops R1 class on June 11, after the start of the R1 session,, drops R2 class on June 13, drops one R3 class on June 6, and drops the other R3 class on July 23. Since the student is an R1 combined and their withdrawal date is July 23, which past the 60% deadline for R1 combined (July 19), the student receives NO REFUND.
