Students who fully withdraw from an academic term, once the term has started, will have a tuition liability calculation completed by the Finance Office. The calculation will be based on the day of the official withdrawal and subject to the percentages listed on the Tuition Refund Schedule for the specific academic term. After the 60% point in a term, no refunds for tuition are given. Students who receive federal financial aid will have a calculation done for Return of Title IV Funds as well.
Any remaining balance on a student account after these calculations are performed is due immediately. Mitchell Hamline School of Law will process withdrawal calculations within 10 days after the withdrawal form is received in the Finance Office.
If, at the time of withdrawal, a student’s tuition payments exceed the amount of tuition liability, the Finance Office uses the overpaid amount to reduce any student aid awarded before returning any funds to the student. Aid is refunded to student financial aid programs in the following order, as mandated by federal and state regulation:
1. Unsubsidized Federal Direct Loan
2. Subsidized Federal Direct Loan
3. Graduate Plus Direct Loans
4. Federal Perkins Loan
5. Other Title IV (Federal) Financial Aid Programs
6. Other Federal Sources
7. Institutional Aid
8. Private Aid (private loans, outside scholarships, etc.)
9. SELF Loans (or other state aid)
