Refund Schedule

Refund Schedule for Tuition and Fees

The following refund schedules will be used to calculate refunds for all students who withdraw from class(es).

NOTE: Refunds are based upon the official start of the term/program (usually a Monday) and not the first day of class.

You may find it necessary to withdraw/drop from the University before the end of a term or class. Withdrawals could impact your student account, financial aid, tuition assistance, and veteran benefit status. The date that you start the withdrawal process and drop class(es) is the official withdrawal date for the class(es), and will be used to calculate the percentage of time you were enrolled in the term and the percentage of tuition you are charged. The calculation will use the total number of calendar days you attended divided by the total number of calendar days of the enrollment period (minus authorized breaks of five days or more).

If you drop after the 60 percent point in the enrollment period, there is no tuition refund; you are responsible for the full amount.

Example (Traditional Based Student in a 12-Week Session)*:

Student A has total institutional charges of $2381, which include $2250 in tuition and fees and $131 in books and/or supplies charged at the bookstore. The student enrolled in the Fall 12-Week session, but withdraws from all classes after attending for 26 days. The 12-Week session is 83 calendar days in length. The student will be charged for (has earned) 31.33 percent of the tuition (26 days/83 days = 31.33 percent). The unearned percentage of tuition is 68.67 percent and will be credited off of the student's account.

Example (Flexxive Student)*:

Student A has total institutional charges of $2100, which include $2000 in tuition and $100 for the resource fee. The student enrolled in the Flexxive program, but withdraws from all classes after attending for 20 days. The Flexxive enrollment period is 182 calendar days in length. The student will be charged for (has earned) 11 percent of the tuition (20 days/182 days = 11 percent). The unearned percentage of tuition is 89 percent and will be credited off of the student's account.

Refund Policy

Refunds are based upon the official start of the session/program (usually a Monday) and not the first day of class. If you are eligible to receive a refund based on excess financial aid (for living expenses), corporate or military tuition assistance, or withdrawal from class, you will be issued a refund. If you receive your financial aid disbursement prior to tuition assistance, all tuition, fees, and books will be deducted out of the financial aid refund first. If Bellevue University refunds more money than you are eligible to receive, you are responsible for payment back to Bellevue University.

Credit Balance Policy

If you have a credit balance on your account you will automatically be refunded on a daily basis. If you wish to leave the credit balance on your account, you may do so by completing and turning in a Student Authorization Statement Form to Student Accounts via fax at 402-557-5410 or email to stuacct@bellevue.edu. This Authorization Statement is good for the academic year it is signed; any credit balance will be refunded at the end of the authorized academic year unless a new Student Authorization Statement Form is submitted.

Wire Transfer

Students that require a refund through a wire transfer will need to fill out an Outgoing Wire Transfer Form

Direct Deposit
This option takes approximately three days after the funds are received by TouchNet. Direct deposit can be used at any United States financial institution with electronic funds transfer capabilities as most banks participate in the electronic funds transfer network.
The benefits of this option include:

  • You won't have to wait for a check to arrive in the mail
  • The funds will be immediately available in the account of your choice- no trip to the bank is necessary
  • You can view the status of your disbursement through TouchNet's online platform.

Check
If you choose check as your refund option, it will be mailed to you in approximately 5-7 days after the funds are received by TouchNet.

It is important that you keep your address up to date. You can update your address in Self Service in BRUIN.

Refund checks should be cashed promptly. Refunds checks dated over 180 days (6 months) will be stale dated.

Federal guidelines for Federal Title IV funds require Bellevue University to return stale dated refund checks to the federal program which generated the refund. Bellevue University may not be able to request the return of Federal Title IV funds.

Refund checks from other sources other than Federal Title IV funds that are stale dated can be re-issued upon request. Contact the OneStop Service Center at 800- 756-7920, select option 0 or via email at Onestop@bellevue.edu.

Stop Payment Charge

Bellevue University is not responsible for refund checks lost in the mail. In the event you do not receive your refund check and wish Sallie Mae to issue a new check, a stop payment fee (currently $25.00) will be deducted from your student account prior to issuing a new check. Stop payment requests on refund checks will only be processed once the check has been missing for 10 business days from date of mailing.
