All refunds will be processed in accordance with the above policy. If there are extenuating circumstances (such as mandatory job transfer from the Hampton Roads area documented by a letter from the employer or extended period of hospitalization documented by a physician's statement), students must submit a Tuition Refund Appeal form, along with documentation to the Office of Student Accounts. Notification of the final decision will be made within two weeks of the date the appeal is filed. All appeals must be filed by the end of the academic term to be considered. Any appeal filed after the term has ended will be denied regardless of the circumstances.

The refund policy for room and board is contained in your housing contract. Any questions should be directed to the Office of University Housing at (757) 594-7756.
