Refund Policy

The refund policy is determined by the SUNY Board of Trustees, and Purchase College adheres to it without exception. A full refund (including any nonrefundable fees) is automatically granted only if a course or program is canceled or closed to further enrollment by the college. To apply for a refund, complete and file an add/drop or withdrawal form.

Please note:

  • The refundable tuition amount (excluding nonrefundable fees) is based on the tuition refund schedule and determined by the date the add/drop or withdrawal form is received—not by the number of classes attended or logged in to.
  • Nonrefundable fees: The following refund schedules apply only to tuition. Please refer to the Student Financial Services information on nonrefundable fees.
  • No refunds can be granted for any reason (including illness or other medical reasons) after the periods listed in the tuition refund schedules.
  • Refunds for credit card payments are automatically credited to the cardholder’s account. Refund checks are mailed to the student at the address on the add/drop or withdrawal form. Please allow up to 6–8 weeks for refund check processing.
