Withdrawal & Refund Policy

Outlined below is the University’s withdrawal and refund schedule. Students who drop a course that results in a change in tuition will receive a refund for the drop course(s) as follows:

Withdrawal through Add/Drop 100% refund
Withdrawal during week 2 75% refund
Withdrawal during week 3 50% refund
Withdrawal during week 4 25% refund
After week 4 no refund

A week is defined as a 7-day cycle starting on the first official day of the semester.

The Office of Student Accounts will invoice students who add a course that results in a change of tuition.

If an undergraduate student drops below full time during the first three weeks of the semester, all university financial aid will be canceled.

Federal government guidelines require the prorated return of Title IV funds through the first 60 percent period of the semester. All federal and state financial aid will be returned in accordance with federal and state guidelines. Students should always meet with the Office of Student Finance before withdrawing.

Student Refund Direct Deposit Instructions

To avoid waiting for a Student Refund check, set up Direct Deposit.

To enroll in direct deposit, please complete the following steps:

3. On the top header, hover over/click on “Students”
4. Click the “MAKE A PAYMENT” button (you will do this in 2 screens before you are directed to the 3rd party vendor) (If you see another login screen asking for an ID and Pin number, wait a day before trying again)
5. Click on the "Refunds" tab on the top of the screen
6. Within the eRefunds page, under "Current Refund Method", proceed to "Security Settings" to enroll in the required Two‐Step Verification

8. Click on the "Set up Account" tab
9. Submit all of the required information within the "Set Up Refund Account" page

Please note the following:
 You only need to enroll once. You do not need to re‐enroll each semester or year.
 If any of your banking information should change, you will need to update your profile.
 The paper refund check process will continue for students who do not enroll in direct deposit.

Leave of Absence

Students who wish to leave the university temporarily should contact the Office of the Registrar for a leave of absence application. 

Consequences of Being in Arrears

Students will not be allowed to register for the coming semester unless all balances have been satisfied. In addition, a student is expected to pay for the next semester before entering the residence hall or starting classes. Students who owe money to the university or who are in arrears in repaying student loans will not receive a diploma or transcripts from the university. Should it become necessary to refer an account to a third party due to nonpayment, the student will be responsible for any collection costs, attorney fees, and suit fees.

Please note: If a student has not made arrangements for payment or does not make a promised payment, the meal plan may be put on hold.

Yeshiva University is committed to making undergraduate studies affordable. Student Accounts advisors are always available to discuss any matter with students and family members. Call 212-960-5269 and a member of the Student Accounts staff will be glad to be of assistance.
