SPRING 2016 REFUND/ WITHDRAW POLICY:
To be eligible to receive a course refund, students need to contact the Registrar's Office to officially drop/ withdraw from their course(s) by the refund/ withdraw date and are encouraged to meet with their academic advisor, success coach and/ or financial aid counselor to discuss the consequence before doing so.
Contact the Office of the Registrar at:
asktheregistrar@rivier.edu or 603-897-8218.
If a letter/ email is sent, the date stamped on the envelope/ email serves as the date of official notification date for both tuition refund and withdrawal. Housing withdrawal follows the same rules as the tuition refund policy, with the exception that the first week is prorated as students move in before classes begin.
