Refunds

Refund Check on Credit Balance

A student with a credit balance on her/his student account may request a refund check by contacting the Office of Student Accounts. No refund check will be issued until all student aid awards are adjusted and/or until such aid is actually received by the College.

For details concerning refunds for non-traditional and graduate programs, please contact the Office of Student Financial Services (585.594.6461).

Withdrawal from College

A. Approved Withdrawal from College

Approved withdrawal means the student has completed the appropriate forms available in the Office of Student Development. Prorated refunds for tuition, room, and some fees are dependent upon the date of withdrawal (see refund schedule under section D). The board (meal) plan charge will be prorated by number of weeks remaining in the semester.

F. Return of Federal (Title IV) Financial Aid

If a student leaves school before the end of the semester, the return of federal financial aid will be based on the guidelines issued by the federal government in the 1998 reauthorization.  Federal financial aid will be prorated on a per diem basis using calendar days, with the exclusion of breaks of over 5 days.  Once the 60% point of the semester is reached, there is no return of federal financial aid.

G. New York State Aid

New York State aid (i.e., TAP) recipients who are withdrawing from college, or who do not complete all of their courses, should be aware that their TAP award amount may be changed for that semester and that they may lose their New York State aid for the next semester. For more details, please refer to the section on Satisfactory Academic Progress.
