Students receiving financial aid or who have signed up for the Deferred Payment Plan are exempt from late payment fees.

Refund Deadlines

One hundred percent of a course’s tuition charge is reversed if it is withdrawn from on or before the Add/Drop Deadline. Seventy-five percent is reversed if it is withdrawn from through the third week of the semester. Fifty percent is reversed if it is withdrawn from through the seventh week (the fifth week for summer). No percentage is reversed for courses withdrawn from after the seventh week (the fifth week for summer). Refer to the “Academic Calendar” for the specific deadlines. These deadlines apply regardless of the actual start and end dates of the course.

For students who received any form of federal financial aid, the amount that will be returned to the financial aid programs is determined by federal guidelines and may be different than the amount calculated by CIIS’s refund policy. Contact the Financial Aid Office for more information about this calculation.

All fees are nonrefundable. The only exception is when the student has dropped all of their courses by the Drop Deadline, in which case the Technology Fee and the Wellness Fees are discharged. If it’s the first semester of the student’s program, the Registration Fee is also discharged.

Refunds Granted After Refund Deadlines—Financial Petition Process

Students who believe they have extenuating circumstances warranting a credit, refund, or adjustment of tuition and/or fees may present a petition to the Financial Petition Committee (FPC). The petition form is available from the Registrar’s Office on MyCIIS.

The FPC considers a request only if all of the following are in place: (1) The student experienced a serious extenuating circumstance beyond his or her control; and (2) the student includes an explanation of this circumstance along with supporting documentation—this documentation becomes the property of CIIS and will not be returned; and (3) if petitioning to receive a reversal of a tuition charge, the associated course has been dropped or withdrawn from; and (4) the petition is submitted within 90 calendar days of the last day of the semester in which the charge was incurred.

The petition and its attachments will remain confidential and be seen only by members of the FPC, which is composed of representatives from the following offices: Academic Affairs, Dean of Students, Registrar, Business, and Financial Aid. The FPC may, with the petitioner’s permission, consult with any faculty, staff, students, or other parties who may have relevant information. The FPC may request additional supporting materials from the student or, if the student consents, from other parties. The student is not present when the FPC meets. The FPC issues its decision within 30 calendar days of receiving all documentation, informs the student and any University personnel who need to take action to implement the decision, and places documentation of the petition and the decision in the student’s file maintained in the Registrar’s Office.

The decision of the FPC is final. Reconsideration is granted only if significant information not contained in the original petition becomes available. Students do, however, have the option of seeking further consideration of a petition through the CIIS General Student Complaint Procedure.
