APUS Tuition Refund Schedule

Tuition Refunds - Course Start or During Week One

You will receive a 100% refund of tuition if you drop the course before or during week 1 of the course.

  • Refunds through week one DO include your technology fees charged per course.
  • Refunds through week one DO NOT include late registration fees.

Refunds after Week One

Refunds for academic credit courses are based on the weekly schedule of your course session.

You should use the tables below to find your potential refund amount based on the session length of your course and in which week of the course session you submitted your online withdrawal request form.

Students should allow 30 days for the processing of tuition refunds. Depending on the original payment method, refunds may not be issued if there is a past due balance on the account. In some cases, credits may instead be applied to the open balance.

  • Audit Students: There are no refunds for students withdrawing from Audit courses after week one.
  • Involuntary Withdrawals: Students receive the standard refund based on the date of the withdrawal if they are involuntarily withdrawn from courses due to lack of academic progress, or suspension due to student conduct issues, including plagiarism.
