Dropping Classes at Marshall University
Students who drop one or more class(es) during the late registration/schedule adjustment period (first week of the semester) shall be eligible for a full reduction of tuition and fees of the dropped class(es) if the remaining tuition and fee assessment falls below 12 credit hours for undergraduate students or 9 credit hours for graduate students.
The tuition for undergraduate students is capped at 12 campus hours while the tuition for graduate students is capped at 9 campus hours (excluding 1st and 2nd year’s School of Pharmacy). Since students are not paying additional tuition for courses added above the tuition cap, they will not receive a reduction in tuition charges during late registration/schedule adjustment when dropping courses if the end result is a tuition assessment at or above the tuition cap. Following late registration/schedule adjustment, only complete withdrawals are eligible for refunds.

NOTE: Financial aid recipients must have their accounts reviewed and approved by the Office of Student Financial Assistance before a refund may be issued. If your financial aid is adjusted, you may owe back for refunds issued based on the original aid amounts disbursed. Adjustments to financial aid can be the result of a change in hours, a change in the students eligibility for certain types of aid, or failure to meet satisfactory academic progress (SAP).
Students Receiving Financial Assistance: Students receiving financial assistance covered by Title IV of the 1992 Higher Education Act, who officially withdraw shall receive a refund in accordance with the Higher Education Amendments of 1998. Marshall University will determine how much Title IV aid a student has received and not earned at the time of total withdrawal. The amount of aid earned is calculated on a prorated basis through 60% of the payment period.
Students Receiving Military Tuition Assistance (TA): The Department of Defense requires the university to return any unearned Military Tuition Assistance (TA) funds to the Department should a service member withdraw from a course that was paid for using TA. If a service member withdraws from any course on or before the 60% completion date a prorated refund will be issued to the Military Service where the TA funds originated.
