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. All other refunds are deposited via electronic check into the bank account specified in the student’s eRefund profile. If students are anticipating a refund, they should check their Purchase email account for instructions and refund confirmations from the Office of Student Financial Services.
