Students who take a leave in the first two weeks of the term typically are not charged tuition for that term. Policies may vary for other expenses, such as materials fees, housing, and health fees. Beyond the two-week period, students who take an involuntary or voluntary leave will ordinarily be charged tuition according to the following tuition and fee adjustment calendar:


On or before: Fee Adjustment:
September 15 one-fourth tuition for the term
October 15 one-half
November 15 three-fourths
after November 15 full tuition


on or before: Fee Adjustment:
February 15 one-fourth tuition for the term
March 15 one-half
April 15 three-fourths
after April 15 full tuition

Any student who leaves the University with an amount due on their student bill that is unpaid for 60 days or more may be subject to collection activities. Costs associated with collecting an unpaid account will be added to the student’s outstanding debt and must be paid in full. 

Students receiving scholarship or other financial aid should consult the Financial Aid Office concerning the financial implications of going on leave or withdrawing. If a student received financial aid, MBA Financial Aid Services staff will meet with the student to determine any applicable refunds or related financial obligations.
