Refund Policy: Course/Program Cancellation

Should a course / program be cancelled, students are eligible for a full refund of any tuition, program fees, and material fees, including any deposits paid. No notification of withdrawal is required if a course is cancelled by the University. Please note that the transition of a course from an in-person format to an online virtual campus format does not qualify as a course cancellation. On-campus courses that are transitioned to the online virtual campus will be adapted to offer the same quality, content and outcome as if they had been offered in-person. 

The otherwise non-refundable Registration Fee may be refundable in the case of course/program cancellation if (a) it was paid (b) the cancelled course / program was the only course / program for which the student was registered in a school year (September through the following August) and (c) the cancelled course / program is not being offered on the virtual campus. If a student believes they are eligible for a refund of the Registration Fee, they must make a request in writing to courses@tufts.edu who will confirm the student's eligibility and issue a refund if qualified.

Any available refund will be credited to the Student Account automatically. In some cases, students may need to request that the funds be distributed to their bank account. Please see the  “Request a Refund” section below for more information.

Please see our Course/Program Cancellation policy for more details.

Refund Policy: Disciplinary Removal

There are no refunds of tuition or program fees charged or payments made, including any deposits paid, in cases where students are administratively withdrawn for violations of academic or student conduct policies.

Please see our Withdrawal policy for more details.

Refund Policy: Non-Participation

There are no refunds of tuition or program fees charged or payments made, including any deposits paid, in cases where a student fails to continue the registration process by not submitting materials or payments, fails to participate in pre-departure activities, or fails to attend the program in part or in whole.

Please see our Withdrawal policy for more details.

Refund Policy: Program Modification
