TCNJ Refund and Repayment Policy
Refunds of Tuition and Fees
A student must withdraw from all courses for the semester (or reduce their registered course load from full-time to part-time) by the last day of Add/Drop in order to be eligible for a refund. The computing of all refunds will be based upon the date of receipt shown on the written notice or Intent to Withdraw Form. Refunds are not based upon the date of last class attendance. A student who leaves school without officially withdrawing from The College forfeits all rights to a refund or to a reduction in his or her account.
The College uses the following policy to determine the amount of refund:
* Only General Services, Student Activity, Student Center, Student Services Fees, and Computer Access Fees.
Formal withdrawal deadline dates may be obtained from the Office of Records and Registration. Should the withdrawal result in a refund, a check will be forwarded to the student’s permanent address.
Refunds for Students Receiving Federal Title IV Funds
Federal regulations require that a pro-rata portion of Title IV funds be refunded to the funding source if students withdraw from The College. Students may, therefore, incur a liability to The College of New Jersey and should consult with the Office of Student Financial Assistance, Green Hall 101 prior to withdrawing.
Withdrawing from the College
To withdraw officially, a student should initiate the withdrawal process in the Office of Records and Registration.
Loan Exit Interview Requirements
Students who withdraw from TCNJ, even for just one semester, and borrowed a student loan, will be required to complete a “Loan Exit Interview” to comply with College policy and federal regulations. Students who do not complete a Loan Exit Interview may have registration and transcript holds placed on their academic records. You will be notified by our office as to the appropriate steps to follow in order to fulfill this requirement.
