Withdrawal from HPU / Refund of Paid Tuition

When a student registers, it is for the full term or semester. Therefore, if the student withdraws from the University during the period, for whatever reason, the comprehensive fees (includes: tuition and fees, plus any housing and dining) will be prorated weekly over the first three weeks of the semester. After the third week, 100% of the comprehensive fee will be charge and no refund will be issued.  The prorated credit schedule is shown below.

Refunds for students registered on a part-time basis are calculated by totaling the tuition and fees and prorating the amount over the first three weeks of the semester. After the third week, 100% of the total tuition and fees will be charge and no credit will be issued.
