Liability is calculated according to the State University of New York withdrawal/refund policy.
If the student withdraws before the enrollment start date, 100 percent of all tuition and fees are refundable.
If the student withdraws on the start date, or after, the college fee, student activity fee and late registration fee, if applicable, are nonrefundable. For standard 15-week terms, the tuition, technology fee and the health and wellness fee are subject to the following liability:
Note: The first day of the term is day 1.
Liability table for terms other than 15 weeks in length.
The following is a sample withdrawal calculation for a full-time, 12-16 credit, undergraduate enrollment based on current New York state resident rates:
The portfolio fee is not reflected in the above example and is due in full if a student withdraws after day 29.
If the withdrawal creates a credit balance on the student's account, a refund will be sent within 28 days, unless the student requests that the credit remain on the account. If payment was made by credit card, the refund will be issued as a credit card refund. If payment on account was received from a third-party payer, the refund may go directly to the third-party payer.
Financial aid students who withdraw and use any portion of their financial aid will use a full financial aid award period of eligibility. In addition, aid will be recalculated and some of the aid may have to be returned, resulting in a balance due. If you have a New York State TAP award, your eligibility is determined on day 29 of the term. If you withdraw to below full time before that date, you will not be eligible for your entire award. You must contact Financial Aid at FinancialAid@esc.edu to determine your eligibility and request your partial award. Please note, accepting a partial TAP award may impact your future TAP eligibility.
Maryland residents, please contact Student Accounts with questions regarding withdrawal liability.
Withdrawing from one or more of your studies after the end of the school's add/drop period may result in the Veterans' Administration reducing or stopping your benefits on the date of reduction or withdrawal. If you withdraw from a study, or studies, after the end of the add/drop period, you may have to repay all benefits for the studies, unless you can show the change was due to mitigating circumstances. The VA defines mitigating circumstances as unavoidable and unexpected events that directly interfere with your pursuit of a course and are beyond your control.
