Refunds

Information regarding refunds for tuition and fees is provided below.

If you choose not to attend Towson University, you must withdraw online through Self Service. To withdraw online:

  • Login to Towson Online Services
  • Click the Self Service link
  • Click the Student Center link
  • Select "Enroll/Drop"

Notification to the instructor does not constitute a proper withdrawal.  If you fail to officially withdraw per the Registrar withdrawal policy you will be financially responsible for all term charges.
 

Refund Dates and Policies

You must drop all your classes by the end of the change of schedule period in order to receive a 100 percent refund of tuition and fees. If you choose to fully withdraw after the change of schedule period, the last date on which you withdraw online from a class determines the percentage of the refund. All refund percentages are based on the official start of the term. Information about refund dates and policies is presented below by term.

Any unpaid charges on a student’s financial account with the university will be subtracted from any refund prior to processing a refund request.  For payments made by credit card, refunds will be credited to the original credit card account and will be reflected on the credit card monthly statement.  For each term, credit card refunds will be processed after the term's change of schedule period.  However, students may ask for a credit card refund prior to this by contacting the Bursar’s Office.  If a student receives a refund of amounts charged to a credit card, the credit card owners are responsible for paying any and all interest charges accrued on the credit card. 

Questions regarding refunds should be referred to the Bursar’s Office.

Credit Balances

If your account reflects a credit balance as a result of an overpayment and unrelated to financial aid, contact the Bursar's Office.
