2016-2017 Catalog > Financial Information > Payments and Policies
Tuition and fees for the semester are payable by the posted due date or at the time of registration (if registration takes place after the due date) unless other arrangements have been made with the Business Office. Payments can be made at the Business Office, online (Campus Portal), or by mail. The University accepts cash, checks, AMEX, VISA, MasterCard, and Discover/NOVUS.
Payment or payment arrangements must be made with the NDNU Business Office by the published due date for all pre-registered students. Students who register after the pre-registration period must make their payment arrangements at the time of registration.
The University also defers payment of a semester's tuition for students who qualify for their company's tuition reimbursement plan. In conjunction with a private vendor (Tuition Management Systems), the University has developed a monthly installment payment plan covering tuition, fees, housing, and meal plan charges. Please contact the Business Office for further details.
International students and On-Line students are required to pay tuition and fees in full by the posted due date (or at the time of registration if after the posted due date) and are not eligible for installment payment plans.
Appointments are available to discuss payment options regarding financial status. Call (650) 508-3565 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

For new students, the basis for class standing will be transferable credits on transcripts submitted to the Office of Admissions.

Any student requesting an exemption must submit an exemption form to the Housing and Residential Life Office (HRL) for approval. Approval of exemptions is case-by-case and is not automatic. Failure to attain an approved exemption from the HRL Office will automatically result in the posting of the semester housing and meal plan charges to the student’s NDNU account.

Room and Board Refund Policy
Room and Board charges are fully refundable up to the beginning of the semester. Any student resident who cancels his/her housing between the time he/she checks in and the end of semester check-out time is subject to a $400 cancellation fee and will be charged on a percentage basis for the time he/she was in residence. Student residents leaving prior to the second week of the Fall semester or the first week of the Spring semester are also responsible for payment on the portion of the meal plan that they used. No meal plan refunds will be issued past the second week after check-in in the Fall or past the first week after check-in in the Spring. For details, see the License for On-Campus Residence.

Refund/Return of Title IV Funds to the Federal Government
In accordance with federal regulations, students who receive federal financial assistance and withdraw from all of their classes before completing more than 60% of the semester are required to return any unearned federal funds. The amount of the return is calculated based on the percentage of the semester completed by the student. Please see the Financial Aid section for details.
Tuition Refund Policy
The Academic Calendar defines the dates on which the semester (15-week) or term (seven-week) begins, as well as the last day to drop. The date upon which any refund is based is the date on which the Registrar’s Office receives written notice of the dropped course or withdrawal, not the student’s last date of attendance.
Students initiate Drop/Add procedures with a completed and signed Drop/Add form to the Registrar’s Office. Based on the date of receipt of written notification of a dropped course by the Registrar’s Office, the difference in tuition charges will be refunded according to the schedules below. For purposes of this refund policy, administrative drops will be assumed to take place on the third Tuesday of the semester or term.
Tuition Refund Schedule – Graduate, Part-time Undergraduate and Undergraduate Overload
This schedule does not apply to students who drop a course and add simultaneously a course resulting in the same or greater tuition charge. Any refund due will be made within 30 days of the Registrar’s receipt of written notice of the dropped course(s).
Refunds for semester (15-week) and term (seven-week) courses are:
Refunds for all other courses are:
Tuition Refund Schedule – Full-time Undergraduate

It does not apply to students who are also full-time at the end of the drop period (third Tuesday), whether or not they have added or dropped courses in the interim. Except in the case of overload units, no refund or additional charge applies to such students. A student who withdraws from a class or classes after the last day to drop (third Tuesday) but remains enrolled for the term will be considered full-time for the remainder of the term. No tuition adjustment will be made.
Full-time students who drop a course or courses and thereby become part-time or thereby completely withdraw from the University will have the difference in tuition charges refunded according to the schedule below based on the date of receipt of written notification of the dropped course(s) by the Registrar’s Office. Any refund due will be made within 30 days of the last day to drop.
