Refunds

University of Virginia Continuing Education programs have varying policies regarding refunds. Please refer to course descriptions or special brochures for details. The general policy on refunds follows. It applies except as otherwise indicated.

All requests for refunds must be made in writing to the Continuing Education center or program office director (or the Deputy Director for Academic Support at the Northern Virginia Continuing Education Regional Center). The date of the postmark, fax, or in-person request determines the amount of any refund. Refund of registration fees paid by credit card will be credited to that credit card account, and the request for refund should include the number of the account from which the fee was paid.

Notice to an instructor or sponsoring agency does not constitute an official request to withdraw from a class and to receive a refund.

Refunds are calculated according to the following considerations:

  1. Refunds are granted automatically when a scheduled course is canceled.
  2. If the student withdraws before the first class meeting, a full tuition refund will be granted less a $12.00 processing fee. If the student has paid for materials, that fee will not be refunded.
  3. For courses of 10 or more sessions, 80% of the tuition will be refunded if a student withdraws between the first and second class meetings. A refund of 60% of the tuition will be granted for withdrawal between the second and third class meetings. No refund will be awarded after the third class meeting.
  4. For courses of three to nine sessions, 80% of the tuition will be refunded if the student withdraws between the first and second class meetings. No refund will be granted after the second meeting.
  5. For courses of one or two sessions, no refund will be available after the course begins.

Refund checks are issued by the university bursar in Charlottesville. Allow four to six weeks for processing refund payments. Please direct inquiries to the appropriate Continuing Education regional center.
