Tuition Refund Policy

Drexel University has established a tuition refund policy that allows a refund of tuition and fees when you withdraw from Drexel University or when you’re billed by credit hour withdraws from a course(s). Nursing equipment fees and health insurance are non-refundable charges. The refund is a credit to your student account and may result in adjustments to your financial aid. If a credit balance is created on your student account the credit balance will be refunded to you.

Not included in this policy are charges for University Housing and Dining Plans.  Please visit the University Housing website for further information on housing cancellations and the Dining & Retail Services website for dining plans.
