Credit Balance

Balance of funds in excess of charges created by financial aid will be paid directly to the student (with the exception of Parent Plus Loans which will be payable to the parent). These funds are available to the student for use in paying non-Graceland costs such as books, off-campus housing, personal expenses and transportation.

Withdrawal from the University

Graceland University students not returning to Graceland for the next term, including GRADUATES and students who leave during a term, are required to initiate the withdrawal process. Lamoni Campus students must formally notify the Retention Office of their intent to withdraw. Independence Campus students, Off-Campus Program students or Global Campus students must formally notify their Site Coordinator or Program Consultant of their intent to withdraw. Non-attendance does not constitute withdrawal notification. The last date of attendance is used to determine financial aid award adjustments and calculate refunds for mid-semester withdrawals as per the Refund Policy. When Official Notification is not provided by the student, the date the university determines the student needs to be withdrawn is used as the notification date.

Refunds and Return of Financial Aid for University Withdrawals

Graceland University’s Refund Policy follows the Federal Return of Title IV Aid Refund Policy to determine return of financial aid and to calculate refunds for withdrawals. Calculations use the notification date to pro-rate aid as well as tuition and refundable charges through the 60 percent point in the semester, based on calendar days from the first day of the semester through the last scheduled day of the semester, including weekends and mid-semester breaks of less than five days. After the 60 percent point in the semester, financial aid will not be reduced for any withdrawal, nor will any refund will be granted. This policy applies to all university withdrawals whether student initiated or administrative withdrawals.

Financial aid awarded (if any) will be returned to the federal, state and Graceland programs on a pro rata basis through the 60 percent point in the semester. Outside scholarship or non-federal loan assistance will not be returned unless specifically requested by the provider.

Eligible charges due or paid will be refunded on a pro rata basis through the 60 percent point in the semester. Some fees are non-refundable and therefore not pro-rated. If a student living on campus withdraws from housing (but not from school) anytime after the first week of the semester, the semester charge for housing remains assessed in full. Board charges will be pro-rated. Refunds are processed within 45 days of withdrawal. Students should note that withdrawal may or may not result in an actual refund of money to the student. Circumstances may occur in which the student still owes money to the University even after appropriate withdrawal credit.

Contact Student Financial Services with specific questions.

Course Withdrawals

Graceland University students may withdraw from a course through the 13 percent point of the semester without a “WD” grade. A grade of “WD” is recorded in any course when the student withdraws after the 13 percent point and through the 60 percent point of the semester. After 60 percent of the semester is complete, the student is not allowed to withdraw from the course, and will be awarded the appropriate grade in the course. Please refer to the Class Attendance Policy regarding Course Withdrawal by Instructor and Administrative Withdrawals.

Course withdrawals must be initiated by students.  Non-attendance does not constitute withdrawal notification. Notification dates are used to calculate withdrawal credit and financial aid award adjustments for mid-semester withdrawals as per the Refund Policy. When Official Notification is not provided by the student, the date the university determines the student needs to be withdrawn is used as the notification date.

Contact your Program Consultant, Site Coordinator or the Registrar’s Office with specific questions.

Refunds and Return of Financial Aid for Course Withdrawals

Financial aid awards will be re-evaluated as appropriate for course withdrawals or changes in enrollment status. Refunds for course withdrawals will follow the pro rata schedule used for university withdrawals as per the Refund Policy. Exceptions to the pro rata schedule for course withdrawal are:

  1. For programs assessing hourly tuition rates, withdrawals from courses only one sub-session in length will calculate refunds through the 60 percent point in the sub-session using the notification date and the date range of the sub-session.
  2. For programs assessing full-time tuition rates, course withdrawals through the 13 percent point of the semester reducing enrollment from full-time to part-time will result in a refund of the full-time tuition charge and a reassessment of tuition at the part-time hourly rate. Full-time students withdrawing from courses in these programs after the 13 percent point do not qualify for refunds.
