Refunds first will be applied toward any outstanding university financial obligations. Any remaining refund will be processed through BankMobile or by credit card. UH-Clear Lake has partnered with BankMobile to provide disbursement services for financial aid and tuition refunds. If payment was by credit card, then reimbursement will be refunded back to the credit card used for payment.
Dropped classes and withdrawals are not the same. Students are advised to contact SBS prior to dropping or withdrawing. Please read the information provided below the tables to determine refund.
Information for Withdrawals
A student is considered Withdrawn when he or she is no longer enrolled in the current term. Students receiving financial aid are advised to contact the Office of Financial Aid prior to making changes in their enrollment status. Student services and privileges, including library services and use of computer labs, terminate upon withdrawal. Class days are counted from the first official class day of a semester or summer/fall session, and include weekdays and Saturdays. Refunds will first be applied to outstanding obligations.
Students who pay tuition and fees for any term and subsequently cancel their registration prior to the first day of classes, are entitled to a full refund. This refund excludes the $15 matriculation fee, $30 Academic Records fee, and any other non-refundable fees. Enrollment cancellations can be completed online through E-services.
Students who officially withdraw from the university after classes begin may be eligible for a partial refund of tuition and fees. The applicable refund is based on the courses in which a student is enrolled on the official date of withdrawal. Refunds are based on the amount billed and not what has been paid.
Once a student registers, he or she is responsible for the total fees assessed regardless of whether the installment or short term loan option is used. Refund percentages are calculated according to total fees assessed, and not the amount that has been paid. This means if you withdraw after making your first payment of tuition and fees, but after the 100% withdrawal period, a credit balance will first be applied to any outstanding amount due.
Withdrawal from courses or from the university can be made through E-Services prior to the deadline stated in the academic calendar. Withdrawals in writing are effective on the date of receipt. Letters can be faxed to the Office of the Registrar at 281-226-7230. The university reserves the right to deduct from the refund any outstanding financial obligations.
No refund will be made to students who leave the university without officially withdrawing. The refunds quoted are those authorized at the time of publication of this webpage but are subject to change without notice as necessitated by the university or legislative action. Refunds for withdrawal are made in accordance with the refund schedule.
Information for Drops
Dropped course refunds only apply when a student drops from one or more courses, yet remains enrolled in at least one course. Students receiving financial aid are advised to contact the Office of Financial Aid prior to making changes in their enrollment status. Reducing semester hours to zero is considered a withdrawal and the Refund on Withdrawals schedule will be followed. Please refer to the Refunds on Withdrawals link.
Class days are counted from the first official class day of a semester or summer/fall session, and include weekdays and Saturdays. Refunds first will be applied to outstanding obligations. The refunds quoted are those authorized at the time of publication of this webpage but are subject to change without notice as necessitated by the university or legislative action. Refunds for dropped classes are made in accordance with the refund schedule.
