Refunds for dropped and withdrawn courses

At Westminster, we understand that sometimes your circumstances change. We offer refunds for tuition based on the following guidelines, at our sole discretion.


During the add/drop period at the beginning of the semester or term, a full refund for a dropped course will be granted. After the add/drop period, you will be offered a prorated refund based on the time lapsed from the first day of the semester to the date the course was withdrawn.  After 61% of the semester has been completed, no refunds will be issued. Initial deposits and student fees are non-refundable.


If you have a loan or scholarship, please check with the Financial Aid Office to determine how withdrawing from a course could impact your current and/or future eligibility. 

Doctor of Ministry Program 

Students who are paying annual tuition: since tuition payment is not based on the number of modules or credits taken during a given year, refunds are not permitted if you drop or withdraw from a module. However, refunds may be given if you withdraw from the DMin program.


Students who believe that individual circumstances warrant exceptions from the refund policy may appeal to the Vice President of Finance.

**Important Note**: If you are suspended from the seminary, whether voluntary or involuntary, no refund will be permitted.
