Refund Policy – Course/Program cancellation

Should a course / program be cancelled, students are eligible for a full refund of any paid Tuition, including any Deposits paid. The Application Fee will also be refunded if the cancelled course was the only Summer course / Program for which the student was registered.

No notification of withdrawal is required if a course is cancelled by the University and any available refund will be credited to the Student Account automatically. However, students in this situation must still request a disbursement of the credit through Tufts Student Financial Services. Please see the “Request a Refund” section below for more information.

Please note that courses can be cancelled up to and including the first day of the course session.

Refund Policy – Disciplinary removal from a course / program

There are no refunds of tuition charged or payments made in cases where students are administratively withdrawn for violations of academic or student conduct policies.

Request a Refund

Refunds are credited to your student account. Approved refunds are generally issued within 1-3 weeks from the date the request is received.

Disbursement of refunds is processed through Tufts Student Financial Services.
