Refund Policy

Add/Drop Period

During the add/drop period students may add or drop courses without incurring charges. If a student adds one or more course(s) during the add/drop period, he/she must pay additional tuition corresponding to the added course(s) at the time of submitting the application, otherwise the application will be rejected.

If a student withdraws from one or more courses during the add/drop period, the fees of the dropped course(s) will be credited to student account for the following semester.

A student may withdraw from one or more course(s) after the end of the add/drop period, provided he/she remains registered in at least three courses during that semester (nine credit hours). In this case, the student does not have the right to claim any refund for the fees of the withdrawn courses.

Suspension of Registration

During the add/drop period a student may submit an application for suspension of registration for one or a maximum of two consecutive semesters. The application should be submitted to the Admission and Registration Department. In this case, the full amount of any fees paid shall be credited in full to the student’s  account for the following semester, or refunded two weeks after the submission of the refund application to the Student Account Officer (at Finance Department).

If the student submits an application for suspension of registration for one or two semesters during the two weeks following the end of add/drop period, he/she shall be entitled to only 50 percent of the tuition fees of the semester in which he/she submits the application for suspension.

If the student submits an application for suspension of registration after the end of the two weeks following the add/drop period, he/she will not be entitled to claim a refund of any part of the tuition fees of the semester in which he/she submits the application for suspension.
