The above refund policy applies to tuition and fees.

For ACCESS students enrolled in one-credit human resource management workshops: Students who have attended the first meeting may withdraw prior to the second meeting. However, there will be no refund for tuition.

For those ACCESS students who receive financial aid, the following refund policy is applicable: a refund will be credited from the date the student completes the registrar's official withdrawal form and will be based on the amount of time the student has spent at the University, until the semester is 60% complete. At this time all applicable tuition and fees shall be considered to be 100% earned and a refund will not be applied. For example, if the length of the semester is 100 days, and the student withdraws after 30 days, 30% of all charges would be considered earned and a 70% refund of all charges will be applied. If the student withdraws after 75 days, all charges are considered 100% earned and a refund will not be applied.

Sessions 1 and 2 include all fall sessions, 3 and 4 include all spring sessions, and 5 and 6 include all summer sessions.

Please note: Students who have already received a refund of a credit balance may owe money to the University and/or to the respective financial aid programs in the case of a withdrawal within the first 60% of the semester.

No transcripts will be issued by DeSales University for any student who has an outstanding financial obligation.
