Refund Policy

What You Need to Know

Students who officially withdraw or take an official leaves of absence from Clark University are required to submit paperwork to the Dean of Student’s Office.

The refund policy covers these scenarios:

  • Withdrawal or official leave of absence by the final day of Add/Drop:  A student who officially withdraws from the University, or takes a leave of absence by the final day of Add/Drop, will receive a 100 percent refund on tuition and mandatory fees.
  • Withdrawal or official leave of absence after the second quarter of the semester: There is no reduction in charges.
  • Leaving because of a suspension, dismissal, or expulsion: If a student is suspended, dismissed, or expelled from the University, there will be no reduction in charges.
  • Consider tuition insurance to supplement and strengthen our refund policy.
