Students who change enrollment or residency plans may be eligible for a refund of tuition, fees, room, or board charges. The Refund Policy brochure, available online here, in the Accounting and Financial Aid offices and on, outlines the circumstances under which a refund is applicable and the procedures a student must follow to secure a refund. Full or partial refunds may be given to students who drop courses, completely withdraw from the University, or change to commuter status.

During the first week of classes, those undergraduate students who drop below full-time enrollment (12 hours) or drop extra hours for which they have been charged, as well as those part-time students who drop hours, will be eligible for a 100% refund or tuition of dropped classes and some fees. No record of enrollment for the class or classes will appear on a student’s permanent record.

After the published 100% refund deadline students are allowed to withdraw from a class or classes, but no refund will be made for individually dropped courses. A grade of W is posted to the student’s permanent record for classes from which the student withdrawals after the 100% deadline.

Upon registration, each student accepts all University policies regarding refunds outlined in the Refund Policy brochure. You are, therefore, encouraged to view the refund policy brochure.

UIndy has partnered with Higher One, Inc. to disburse refunds to students. All refunds to students will be disbursed through the Higher One Easy Refund Card System.

Attendance and Withdrawal Policies
Attendance - Class attendance is considered an important part of the educational process at the University of Indianapolis. All students are expected to attend class regularly.

Each instructor sets specific guidelines for attendance and penalties for excessive absences. Failure to attend class may result in administrative withdrawal from or failure of a course.

Withdrawal policies at the University of Indianapolis are as follows:

  1. The student has the responsibility of initiating official withdrawal from a course or from the University by completing the necessary forms. Discontinuing class attendance is not considered official withdrawal, though some instructors do withdraw students for excessive absences. Administrative withdrawal for lack of attendance will result in a grade of WN (withdrawn administratively) on the permanent record.
  2. Official withdrawals must be made in person in the Registrar’s Office or in a letter addressed to the Registrar.
  3. Day students who withdraw from all classes must initiate a complete withdrawal by meeting with the Registrar or Associate Registrar.
  4. The University reserves the right to withdraw a student administratively for cheating or plagiarism, excessive absences, or misconduct of any kind.
