For information on term Refunds for full withdrawals please click here:  http://www.purdue.edu/registrar/Calendars/index.html  and select the appropriate Summer Drop/Add Deadlines calendar.  You can also contact the Office of the Bursar for additional information.

Please note that all courses which were dropped within 10 calendar days of a full withdrawal will be included in the calculation when determining the amount for which a student will be responsible when withdrawing from the University.

Students who drop individual courses without withdrawing entirely from the University before the sixth week of class may expect that tuition will be adjusted to the most recent credit hour enrollment. No tuition adjustments will be made to individual course drops after the sixth week of enrollment.  NOTE: Special course fees are non-refundable after the first week of classes.

Refunds are calculated on the non-resident tuition (if applicable) and the general service portion of the fees. The technology and the repair and rehabilitation fees are non-refundable.
