Withdrawal-Refund of Institutional Charges Policy

Students who withdraw from the college will be withdrawn from all courses for the semester in which they withdraw. Students who withdraw during fall semester also will be withdrawn from J-term courses and may, at the earliest, re-apply to the college for spring semester using the Special Student Application.

When any student (new or returning) withdraws from all coursework during a semester, it is the College’s responsibility to determine the student’s withdrawal date for the purposes of calculating the proration and refund of institutional charges billed by the college. For determination of the student’s withdrawal date see the Official Withdrawal and Unofficial Withdrawal section of the Withdrawal-Return of Title IV Federal Student Aid policy.

Housing and meals

Housing and meal charges are refunded according to the schedule below and computed based on the withdrawal date as determined by the Dean of Student’s Office and from the first official day of the academic semester.

Resident students are to vacate their assigned rooms within 48 hours of initiating the withdrawal. A per diem room and board charge will be assessed directly to the student for each day the room is occupied beyond the official withdrawal date. Neither financial aid nor the refund of charges will apply to these charges.

When a student is no longer enrolled, has personal property in one of Augustana's residences and has not received permission for the property to remain at the location, Residential Life staff will make arrangements to pack and store the property for the remainder of the term. A per hour charge for packing will be placed on the student's account. The property will be discarded on the last day of final exams for that term.
