Withdrawal/Dismissal Refund Policy

When a student withdraws from the college or from a course, they must complete a Withdrawal/Clearance form available at nyit.edu/registrar or in person at New York Tech Enrollment Services Center. Tuition liability is based on the date of withdrawal determined and recorded on the withdrawal form. Requests for a refund or reduction of indebtedness received more than 12 months from the first scheduled day of the semester or term in question will be denied. All fees are nonrefundable.

Ceasing attendance to classes, informing the instructor of withdrawal, or stopping payment on a check does not constitute an official withdrawal and does not relieve the student of their financial obligation.

In the case of complete withdrawal or dismissal from the college, students who were awarded federal Title IV financial aid will be subject to proration on the awards in accordance with applicable federal regulations. The application of federal refund provisions may result in an outstanding balance owed to the college and/or the U.S. Department of Education. Details of the adjustment to federal Title IV financial aid awards will be provided to the student following the withdrawal process.

In the event of a full withdrawal or dismissal, the tuition liability is calculated, excluding all fees (except for the college fee if the withdrawal or dismissal occurs before the first scheduled day of the semester, cycle or course, as appropriate) and room deposits as follows:

Fall, Spring, and Summer III Courses:

  1. Withdrawal or dismissal at any time from the date of the student’s registration to the day before the first scheduled day of the semester: 100 percent refund on the tuition and the college fee.
