Summer 2017 Financial Liability Deadlines

Liability refers to the percentage of tuition and fees that the student remains financially responsible for if courses are dropped/resigned at a given point in the session.

For courses dropped/resigned during the session, tuition liability is calculated using the:

  1. start date of the class session and
  2. the week that the drop/resign occurs

Fee liability is 0% during the first week only. After the first week, there is 100% liability for fees. For sessions that are four weeks or less in length, the fee liability is 100% after the second day of classes.
