* Though unlikely, fees may be subject to change.

*A $100 residential damage deposit is required by all students at the time the student first enrolls at the College. Students must return their residential key and checkout slips at the end of each academic year or the deposit will be forfeited. Any unused portion of the deposit will be refunded at graduation or upon withdrawal from the College once the student has properly checked out of their room.

Credit Balance Refunds: For current students, credit balance refunds may be requested by the student in the finance office approximately two weeks from the start of the semester. Refunds are only processed for fully funded credit balances. Credit refunds for a given semester are processed after the drop/add period 10 days after classes begin. Refund checks are not issued for credit balances of $2 or less. You may pick up these smaller refunds in person at the finance office.

Withdrawal Policy: Please consult the catalog for information on withdrawal policy and possible refunding of fees. Fees are subject to change without notice.

In order to better ensure that all students have an opportunity to take May Term courses, students will have two May Terms included in their tuition. Students may enroll in additional May terms for an additional tuition fee, plus a residential fee if applicable.

Any student who is a residential student in the spring can reside on campus with no additional fees for room and board if they are enrolled in a “fee-included” May Term. Living on campus during May Term is not mandatory. However, no refund for tuition, room or board will be given to students not attending May Term or who decide to live off campus.

There may be additional charges to students enrolled in May Term courses involving travel, off-campus housing or other expenses.
