Total Withdraw Tuition Refund Policy

Withdrawn courses will appear on the transcript with a grade of "W." According to Minnesota State Colleges and Universities guidelines, students enrolled at Riverland who totally withdraw from all courses during fall and spring semester are subject to the following refund policy:

During the first five class days of the semester there will be a 100 percent refund of tuition and fees.

Date of TOTAL Withdrawal Semester Refund Received
6th-10th day of term 75% refund
11th-15th day of term 50% refund
16th-20th day of term 25% refund
after the 20th day of term 0% refund

It is the student's responsibility to officially withdraw from college; the college does not assign a "W" grade for students who fail to officially withdraw.

If a student who receives Federal financial aid officially withdraws from all his/her courses or merely stops attending course before 60 percent of the term is completed, the student will be required to repay a portion of his/her financial aid. The student's last date of attendance is determined by the date on the drop/add/withdraw form. If a student stops attending classes and does not notify the college, the student will receive "FW" grades for all registered courses and the student's last date of attendance will be reported by the students' instructors.
