Partial withdrawal policy from the University

Students dropping courses during the period of schedule adjustment will receive total credit for the courses and special course fees, if applicable, as long as the student remains enrolled in the University. If, however, the student withdraws from any classes after the period of schedule adjustment, and is still enrolled, no tuition or fee credit will be granted for the class(es) withdrawn.

Total withdrawal policy from the University

A student who registers, but does not attend class(es), or who withdraws for any reason after attending class(es), will not receive credit unless officially withdrawn by submitting a written notice of withdrawal to the Office of the Dean of their respective school. The effective date of withdrawal will be the date on which the withdrawal notice is received by the respective dean. The percentage of credit refunded will be determined by this date. Tuition, room and board costs will be credited according to the schedule below.

Important note: Withdrawals require the completion of the withdrawal form. Notifying your academic advisor or faculty member of your intention to withdraw, without completing the proper form, does not constitute an authorized withdrawal. Unauthorized withdrawal results in failure of all courses

Refund policy for Title IV funds

If a student withdraws completely from the institution during any given enrollment period, calculations must be performed to determine what amount of the student Title IV federal financial aid is to be returned. Refunds of Title IV monies are calculated in accordance with federal regulations. If a student has attended Barry University before, a standard calculation based on the institutional refund policy will be used to determine the amount of Title IV funds to be returned. This calculation will be used through the established period of institutional refund. If this calculation indicates that monies should be returned, a specific order of refund has been established by the federal government. The order of distribution of refunds is specified as follows:

  • To outstanding balances on Federal Family Education Loan Programs (Subsidized and Unsubsidized Stafford Loans and PLUS loans).
  • To outstanding balances on Perkins Loans
  • To the Federal Pell Grant
  • To the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant
  • To other Title IV assistance
  • To the student

Calculation of refunds to Title IV funds for students attending Barry University for the first time must be determined using the pro rata formula based on the percentage of the enrollment period remaining after the student withdraws. For these students, calculations to determine refunds to Title IV funds will be made up to the 60% point in any given period of enrollment.

For additional information on refunds to Title IV sources, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at (305) 899-3673 or 1-800-695-2279.

Refund policy for State of Florida funds

A refund will be due to the State of Florida when a student is not enrolled full-time at the end of the institution’s established add/drop period. The State requires a full refund of monies.
