5.18. Financial and Financial Aid Consequences Associated with the Death of a Student

From financial and financial aid points of view, the death of a student is handled exactly the same as is withdrawal from the University (see Sec. 5.16.), except as follows:

  • When the death occurs after the end of the drop/add period, the “Number of calendar days which have elapsed before leaving” is the number of calendar days between the first day of classes of the session and the date of death, inclusive.
  • When appropriate, room and board charges are subject to the same protocols established in Sec. 5.16., except that no termination fee for breaking the housing contract is assessed.
