2017-2018 ULM Student Policy Manual [ARCHIVED CATALOG]


A student who resigns from the University may be entitled to some refund of tuition, activity and out-of-state fees, and/or room and meal plan charges. The exact amount of the refund, if any, will depend upon the resignation circumstances and timing. Refunds will be subject to an administrative fee.

Student’s refunds are either directly deposited or mailed. They are not to be picked up. Direct deposit requires a student to complete an authorization form. If a check is issued, they will be mailed to the permanent address on file in the Registrar’s Office. It is the student’s responsibility to provide the Registrar’s office with the correct and appropriate address.

The computation of any refunds depends upon the status of the student. The bulletin of information contained in the Schedule of Classes applicable to each term contains the details for refunds. This publication should be consulted or the Controller/Student Accounts website.

Students resigning with disciplinary action pending or those being suspended for disciplinary reasons are not eligible for refunds regardless of resignation date.

Students remaining in school but reducing their course load by dropping one or more classes are not entitled to refunds after specifically identified dates each semester.

Refunds will be given through the fourteenth  (14th) class day (for Fall and Spring terms), based on the Current Refund Schedule found on the Controller/Student Accounts Services website. This does not include meal plans. After the fifth (5th) class day there are no changes on meal plans. After the 14th class day, no refunds are given. Students who are dismissed from the university and/or residence halls for academic or disciplinary reasons are not eligible for a refund.

If a student withdraws from the University within the first 14 days of class, their housing will be pro-rated for the days they had possession of the room. Meals will be pro-rated accordingly as long as the student has not spent more than the pro-rated fee. If student has spent greater than the pro-rated fee they will be charged for the amount used. After the fourteenth (14th) class day, no refunds are given. Students who are DISMISSED from the university and/or residence halls for academic or disciplinary reasons are not eligible for a refund.

Students who move off campus after classes begin may be assessed a charge to cover administrative fees. The 5th class day is the last day to change meal plans, therefore, students who move off campus after the 5th class day will be required to keep their meal plans. Students who fail to meet the prepayment deadlines for registration are subject to forfeit his/her room assignment preference and may have to reapply for on-campus housing, including the non-refundable application fee. (Note: Meal charges are not assessed by Residential Life.)
