The tuition refund schedule is the same for fall and spring. The summer refund schedule is unique. It is the student's responsibility to be aware of the schedules posted on the NYU Bursar's website.
Tuition Refund Schedule - Fall and Spring
If you drop a course within the first two weeks of the semester, you will receive a 100% refund of tuition and fees.
If you withdraw from a course after the first two weeks of the semester, you will receive no refund of tuition and fees.
Please note that all fees (including school-related fees) are non-refundable after the second calendar week of the semester.
Courses beginning after the University add/drop deadline (e.g., 7-week session 2 classes), in most cases may be dropped within one business day of the first class meeting or prior to the 2nd class meeting, whichever comes first, without a W appearing on the student's transcript, and with 100% refund of tuition and fees. This policy only applies to Wagner courses; courses outside of Wagner may not be eligible for refund.
Tuition Refund Schedule - Summer
Summer courses that begin after the drop deadline for the course's session may be dropped without a "W" within 1 business day of the first class meeting by submitting a Class Withdrawal Request via Albert. A 100% refund of tuition and fees will be granted at this time. This policy only applies to Wagner courses; courses outside of Wagner may not be eligible for refund.
Refund Schedule for Complete Withdrawals
If you completely withdraw from all of your courses after the first day of the semester, please note there is a different refund schedule: fees are not refundable after the first day of the semester and there is only a partial tuition refund after the first week.
You must consult the NYU Office of the Bursar for more information.
