A refund of fees will be processed under the conditions noted below. The student must submit a written appeal for a refund or other appeal action to the University within six months of the close of the semester/term to which the refund or other appeal action is applicable. Any debts to the University will be deducted from the refund, up to the full amount.
Refunds are processed in one of two ways:
Students are strongly encouraged to establish direct deposit for their Financial Aid or Student Accounts refunds. Direct Deposit prevents delays due to lost checks or change of address. All refunds from students’ accounts can be direct deposited to any U.S. bank. Funds are usually available within 24-48 hours after disbursement, and enrollment only takes a few minutes. To enroll, sign in at https://my.ucf.edu and click on Student Self Service. Go to the Student Accounts link, then click on Direct Deposit and follow the instructions.
The following conditions allow a full refund:
25% of tuition and fees is refundable when the student withdraws completely from the University prior to the end of the fourth week of classes during a 16- or 17-week semester, or at the end of the first quarter of classes during a Summer session.
Refunds for exceptional circumstances are available upon a late drop approval from one or more courses through Academic Services. Up to 100% of tuition and registration fees are refundable if due to circumstances determined by the University to be exceptional, including, but not limited to, sickness, death, involuntary call to military service, or University administrative error.
Any student receiving Title IV Federal Financial Aid who completely withdraws from the University before 60% of the term has elapsed may be required to repay a pro-rated portion of the aid received.
