Tuition Refund Policy – Adds, Drops or Withdrawals  

  • To add or drop a class, please see the appropriate "Academic Policies and Procedures" sections of this catalog.
  • To officially add or drop a class, students must do so either through MyUMassGlobal Self Service or submit an Add/Drop Form to their respective campus One Stop staff.
  • Failure to attend class or merely giving notice to an instructor will not be regarded as official notice of add/drop or withdrawal.
  • The date of withdrawal for purposes of tuition and/or refundable fees refunds shall be the date on which the class was officially dropped through MyUMassGlobal Self Service or at the campus.
  • Dropping below full-time or part-time status may affect any financial aid that has been awarded and/or disbursed. Students who receive federal financial aid are subject to a pro-rated return of federal funds and will be required to return funds to the University that were previously disbursed based on a higher unit load.  Please contact your Campus One Stop staff for further information.
  • Completely withdrawing from the University or dropping classes after the published tuition and/or refundable fees refund deadline does not absolve students' financial obligations to the University.
  • Any tuition and unit-based fees credits resulting from drops will be applied to the current balance, if applicable.

Tuition and Fees Refund Policy for credit hour programs other than University of Massachusetts Global MyPath and School of Extended Education. Please see Academic Calendar section for specific trimester dates.

If student drops and/or withdraws Refundable Amount

  • For more information about your state’s specific refund policies, if available, please refer to the State Authorization section online or in the catalog.
  • If you are using Tuition Assistance (TA) to pay for your education and drop or withdraw from a course prior to completing 60 percent of the course, the Department of Defense requires that the university return any unearned TA funds to the department based on how much of the course you completed and that you pay a portion of those returned funds. You may owe a portion of your tuition to the university and a portion to your military branch. Before dropping or withdrawing from a course, please contact your military education counselor or education services officer to determine how it could impact your Military Tuition Assistance and potential repayment obligations.
  • Active Duty Military students dropping within the first two weeks of classes or withdrawing after the second week through 60% of the course are subject to the refunding schedule above. However, if a student dropped due to a military service obligation, they may be eligible to file a petition for an exception to the refunding policy. Please see your Academic Advisor or OneStop Specialist for assistance with the petition process.

University of Massachusetts Global MyPath Tuition and Fee Refund Policy

Students may drop all competencies on a date within 30 days of the start of the student's first billing period and receive a full tuition refund. This applies only to the first billing period. For all subsequent billing periods, a full tuition refund will be given prior to starting competencies, but no refunds will be given once the student begins attendance and completes a substantive academic activity.

School of Extended Education Tuition and Refund Policies

The School of Extended Education provides courses and programs to non-matriculated students providing opportunities for continuing education outside of the traditional degree program. Tuition is set based on the individual programming and may vary from the standard tuition policies governing the degree programs. For the most up-to-date tuition on courses and programs offered through the School of Extended Education, as well as specific refunding policies, please visit the website at https://www.umassglobal.edu/academic-programs/extended-education.

Important Note

It is every student’s responsibility to review their student account periodically to ensure that its accuracy and that all applicable credits (Grants, Loans, Scholarships, Adjustments) have been applied to their account.  

Late Payment Charge   

Late Payment Charge is calculated at 6.5 percent per annum commencing on the applicable due date and continuing through the payment date based on the student account balance at each month end. Tuition is due on the start date of each 8 week term, as listed in the catalog. If the balance remains unpaid, late payment charge accrues from the term start date. It is a fixed, simple rate. University of Massachusetts Global reserves the right to change this rate at any time without notice.
