  • Third week of semester 75%
  • Fourth week of semester 50%
  • Fifth week of semester 25%
  • Sixth week of semester No refund

Oral communication and/or failure to report to class are not considered formal notification of withdrawal, and therefore, in these instances, no refund will be given.

Financial aid refunds in the case of students receiving Title IV financial aid will be prorated according to federal regulations. Please contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.

Students withdrawing due to extenuating medical circumstances should apply for special consideration of tuition charges for the semester in which they return. This determination shall be made by the appropriate College officials (who will certify the medical circumstances).


Financial Aid
Financial aid is awarded to students based on their demonstrated financial need.  Students seeking financial aid should contact the Albright College Financial Aid Office for information on resources available.

Withdrawing From a Course

 With the adviser’s approval, a student may drop one course at any time throughout the semester. Withdrawal without penalty is allowed up to one week after mid-term. The designation in this case is W (Withdrawn) and is so noted on the student’s record. Withdrawal from a course after mid-term and three weeks prior to the end of the course will result in the student’s receiving a W or WF (Withdrawn Failing) at the discretion of the instructor. Any student withdrawing from a course in the last three weeks of a semester automatically receives a WF, except for reasons of illness or other dire circumstances as determined by the graduate dean.

Financial aid recipients should consult with the Financial Aid Office when considering course withdrawal.
