5.19. Financial and Financial Aid Consequences Associated with Expulsion

Expulsion is explained in Sec. 6.24.4. From financial and financial aid perspectives, expulsion is handled exactly the same as is withdrawal from the University (see Sec. 5.16.), except as follows:

  • Regardless of the date a student is notified of his/her expulsion, the student receives no tuition or fee refunds for the semester in which he/she was expelled.
  • If the student resides on-campus then the student will automatically be subject to a fee for breaking the housing contract they signed with the office of residence life.
  • When the expulsion 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 that the student receives official notification that he/she is to be expelled, inclusive. If the student appeals the expulsion decision, the days which elapse during the implementation of the appeal process are not counted for purposes of refunds associated with federal, state and/or institutional financial aid. However, such “appeal days” would count as days in residence for purposes of determining a potential refund of room and board charges, if applicable.
