There are two types of refunds.
1. Refund of tuition
When students withdraw at certain points during the
semester, he/she receives a credit of the tuition cost for the
courses dropped. If the student withdraws from the
university, a refund of tuition may be applied to the student
account. See the
Fall 2014 Institutional Refund Schedule and the
Spring 2015 Institutional Refund Schedule. Students who
pay tuition via the monthly payment plan and who withdraw before
the account is paid in full are NOT relieved from payment of
the amount due and will be credited according to the refund
For information regarding the Institutional Tuition Refund
Schedule(s) for summer courses, please contact the Office of
Student Accounts directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or
Notwithstanding the provisions of the University's refund
policies, if any disciplinary action results in the suspension or
expulsion of a student from Butler University, housing or any
activity, the University may refuse to refund, in whole or in part,
the student's tuition, fees or room and board charges. The Office
of Student Affairs handles any credits of room and board charges
when withdrawal occurs during the semester. Students
should direct any question regarding a room and/or board refund to
the Office of Student Affairs.
2. Refund request for credit
balance(s) on account.
The Office of Student Accounts will process refund
checks for credit balances on students' accounts. (If
the credit balance on the student account is NOT due to federal
Title IV funds, only two checks are processed per
term.) Most refund checks require the completion and
submission of a Refund Request form. You may download the Student Account
Refund Request Form (PDF) or you may stop by the Office of
Student Accounts to pick up a form. You may also send a
correspondence to the Office of Student Accounts and request that a
refund check be issued. When submitting written correspondence,
please be sure to include student's Butler ID number, the date
of the request and the student's signature.
Refund checks are issued after the last withdrawal date for a
100% tuition refund as indicated on the Institutional Refund
Schedule (for fall and spring terms) and weekly
thereafter while classes are in session. Some exceptions
apply. Refund checks are NOT issued when school is not
