Any student whose credit hours drop to "0" or who wishes to leave New River must complete a Complete Withdraw Form. These forms are only located on campus. The signatures must be obtained by the student; the form should be taken to the Business Office or the Registrar's Office.
Students who officially withdraw from all courses for which they have registered during a semester in the academic year will be eligible for a full refund if they withdraw prior to the start of the semester or prior to the first day of class with a delayed start.
Students who officially withdraw from all courses after the "full refund " period described above shall be eligible to receive a refund of regular tuition and fees in accordance with the following schedule. Special fees will not be refunded.
The following schedule for calculating refunds shall be adhered to for those students who withdraw from the institution via the official withdrawal process and who are eligible to receive refunds: (Information coming soon)
Should the percentage of calculation identify a particular day, the entire day will be included in the higher refund period. All refunds are to be calculated from the first day of classes of a given semester or term. Every student who registers incurs a financial obligation to the College. Exceptions to this policy resulting from extenuating circumstances must be approved by the Registrar or designee before a refund may be processed.
Return of Title IV Refunds
