Any student whose credit hours drop to "0" or who wishes to leave New River must complete a Request for Withdrawal Form. These forms are only located on campus. The signatures must be obtained by the student; the form should be taken to the Business Office or the Registrar's Office.
Students who officially withdraw from all courses for which they have registered during a semester in the academic year will be eligible for a full refund if they withdraw prior to the start of the semester or prior to the first day of class with a delayed start.
Please note that being eligible for a refund does not necessarily mean a refund in the form of a check sent to the student - but rather it is the amount of tuition that is removed from the overall bill. Withdrawing from the college may cause a balance owed from the student to the College and the student is responsible for paying this balance.
Students who officially withdraw from all courses after the "full refund " period described above shall be eligible to receive a refund of regular tuition and fees in accordance with the following schedule. Special fees will not be refunded.
The following schedule for calculating refunds shall be adhered to for those students who withdraw from the institution via the official withdrawal process and who are eligible to receive refunds:
|90%||1/19 - 1/28|
|70%||1/29 – 2/19|
|50%||2/22 – 3/14|
Should the percentage of calculation identify a particular day, the entire day will be included in the higher refund period. All refunds are to be calculated from the first day of classes of a given semester or term. Every student who registers incurs a financial obligation to the College. Exceptions to this policy resulting from extenuating circumstances must be approved by the Registrar or designee before a refund may be processed.
Return of Title IV Refunds
Financial Aid recipients who fail to withdraw before 60% of the semester has been completed may be required to repay a portion of the federal aid received. Repayments are based on the number of days a student has been enrolled in classes.
