Refund Policy

REFUND OF TUITION FEES - WINTER SESSION 2017

All tuition fees are refunded according to the refund schedule below. Refund amounts are based on the day the request is received. A $5.00 administrative processing fee will be withheld from all refunds unless withdrawal is the result of a campus regulation, class cancellation or compulsory military service.

January 3, 2017 - Full Refund Deadline

Students who drop a course on or before January 3, 2017, will receive a refund for the total, minus a $5.00 processing fee.

January 4 - January 6, 2017 - Partial Refund Period

Students who drop a course during the Partial Refund Period will receive a refund of 65% of the tuition fees, minus a $5.00 processing fee. Students who drop a course after January 6, 2017, will not receive a refund.

Stopping attendance in classes and/or informing the instructor or a Cal State LA staff member about plans to withdrawal do NOT constitute formal withdrawal from any Cal State LA course. Students who do not formally withdraw remain liable for any outstanding payments and academic performance requirements until a formal withdrawal is made. It is important to formally withdraw from any course you are leaving to avoid academic penalty. Incomplete payment of tuition and fees may result in a hold placed on your student account, possible disenrollment and forfeiture of tuition and fees made.

Refund checks will be mailed to the mailing address indicated on the Cal State LA Student GET: https://get.calstatela.edu. Please ensure that the University has your correct/current mailing address on GET. Please allow three to four weeks for refund check processing. If you are enrolled in direct deposit, the tuition and fees refund will be deposited to your bank account.
