Course Withdrawal/Refund Policy

Registration for classes creates a contract for payment of tuition, fees, and charges. Withdrawal must be made in writing through the Academic Advisor. Non-attendance in class or notification to a faculty member does not constitute an official withdrawal.

Impact of withdrawal on financial aid

If a student withdraws from a class or from the college at any time, the college may be required to return a portion of the federal and/or state financial aid to the appropriate programs. Click here to learn more. Any balance created on the student’s account as a result of this transaction is the responsibility of the student. Students receiving financial aid who are considering withdrawing from a course or the college should contact the Financial Aid Administrator before taking action.

Withdrawal requirements

All students who drop their course load to zero (0) hours must return:

  • Attrition survey
  • Exit checklist
  • ID badges
  • Laboratory or course equipment
  • Library books
  • Magnetic strip badge
  • Parking permits (if applicable)

Students not returning the above items will be charged a fee for replacement costs.

The Aultman College refund policy is as follows: 


Withdrawal from a class or from the college by 4pm on the designated term date specified on the academic calendar will cancel all financial obligations to the college.  Prorated refund dates are as follows:

  • Week 2: 90% of tuition refunded
  • Week 3: 50% of tuition refunded
  • Week 4: 25% of tuition refunded
  • After week 4: No refund


All semesters

There is a single, 100 percent refund period through the add/drop deadline.

If the student chooses to withdraw from a class by the add/drop deadline for the semester, they receive a 100% refund for the course’s tuition cost. If the student withdraws from the course after the add/drop deadline, no refund is offered.

For information on the add/drop deadline for a specific semester, please view the academic calendar.
