Important note: deposits, application fees, and other portions of tuition indicated as "non-refundable" are not eligible for a refund. The below tables do not apply to these amounts. Any amounts not eligible for a refund are noted as such on the Tuition & Fees page.

Refund Policy – Course cancellation

Should a course be cancelled, students are eligible for a full refund of any paid Tuition, including any Deposits paid. The Application Fee will also be refunded if the cancelled course was the only Summer Semester course for which the student was registered.

No notification of withdrawal is required if a course is cancelled by the University and any available refund will be credited to the Student Account automatically. However, students in this situation must still request a disbursement of the credit through Tufts Student Financial Services. Please see the “Request a Refund” section below for more information.

Please note that courses can be cancelled up to and including the first day of the course session.

Refund Policy – Disciplinary removal from a course

There are no refunds of tuition charged or payments made in cases where students are administratively withdrawn for violations of academic or student conduct policies.

Request a Refund

Refunds are credited to your student account. Approved refunds are generally issued within 1-3 weeks from the date the request is received.

Disbursement of refunds is processed through Tufts Student Financial Services.
