5.19. Financial and Financial Aid Consequences Associated with Expulsion

Expulsion is explained in Sec. 6.24.5. 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/their expulsion, the student receives no tuition or fee refunds for the semester in which he/she/they 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.
  • The “official withdrawal date” (OWD) is the date that the student receives official notification that he/she/they is to be expelled. 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.
