Refund of Fees

  • To receive a refund of fees, students must file the appropriate Drop/Add/Withdraw form in the Registration & Student Records office or through Web Advisor within the refund period, which is published online at registration.
  • • If students withdraw by the eighth calendar day from a full-term course (including Saturday and Sunday) of fall, spring and summer terms, a 100 percent refund will be issued without further action by students (see refund information at the end of this section). After that date, students will receive no refund for dropped classes. Different refund schedules apply for courses that have beginning and ending dates that do not correspond to the full-length term dates. For information, contact Registration & Student Records, Dayton Campus, 937-512-3000 or any of the regional centers.
  • • If students withdraw after the eighth day of the full term, they will not receive a refund of tuition or fees unless the withdrawal was due to exceptional circumstances such as a medical emergency. For consideration of the specific situation, students must submit a tuition refund appeal request to the Bursar Office, Dayton Campus. Students may access the Tuition Refund form at: www.sinclair.edu/bursar-refund-policy and follow the steps accordingly. Financial aid may be affected. Please refer to Withdrawal & Return Title IV Funds policy.
