Fee Refunds

Cancellation, Withdrawal and Fee Refunds

To cancel your registration before the first day of instruction or to withdraw from the university on or after the first day of instruction, you must complete a Cancellation/Withdrawal Form and return the form to the Office of the University Registrar. If you do not submit a Cancellation/Withdrawal Form, you will be liable for tuition and student fees according to university policy (below). No exceptions will be made to this policy.

If you are enrolled in classes, you will be dropped from all of your courses automatically when the Cancellation/ Withdrawal Form is processed.

For students who pay fees and then cancel or withdraw with official approval before the end of any quarter, fees may be refunded according to the Schedule of Refunds.

The effective date for determining a refund of fees is the date you file a completed Cancellation/Withdrawal Form with the Office of the University Registrar and it is presumed that no university services will be provided to you after that date. The percentage of tuition and student fees that may be refunded is determined by the number of calendar days (not school days) elapsed, beginning with the first day of instruction.

If you are enrolled but have not paid fees in full by the tenth day of instruction, you will be administratively withdrawn and fees for the first 10 days of instruction will be charged to your account.

New Undergraduate Students

The nonrefundable $100 deposit paid when you accepted admission and returned your Statement of Intent to Register (SIR) is withheld from tuition and the Schedule of Refunds is applied to the balance of tuition and student fees assessed.

Therefore, on or before the first day of instruction, tuition and student fees paid are refunded in full minus $100. After the first day of instruction, the nonrefundable $100 deposit is withheld from tuition and the Schedule of Refunds is applied to the balance of tuition and student fees assessed.

All Continuing Students, Readmitted Students and New Graduate Students

On or before the first day of instruction, registration fees are refunded in full minus a $10 service charge for cancellation/withdrawal. After the first day of instruction, the Schedule of Refunds is applied to tuition and student fees. The Schedule of Refunds does not apply to the Health Insurance Fee.

Planned Educational Leave Program

The Schedule of Refunds also applies to students who participate in the Planned Educational Leave Program (PELP). Thus, for a full refund of tuition and student fees paid, you must file a completed approved PELP Form with the Office of the University Registrar before or on the first day of instruction; see Leave of Absence: Planned Educational Leave Program (PELP).

Schedule of Refunds

The Schedule of Refunds applies to all new, continuing and readmitted students who do not receive federal financial aid.*

The Schedule of Refunds refers to calendar days—not school days—beginning with the first day of instruction. The number of days elapsed is determined from the date the completed Cancellation/Withdrawal Form or PELP Form is returned to the Office of the University Registrar. Percentages listed (days 1-35) will be applied respectively to Tuition, Nonresident Supplemental Tuition, and all student fees except the Health Insurance Fee.

UC Davis Student Health Insurance Plan (Davis SHIP) Coverage and Refund of Davis SHIP Fees

The University of California requires that all students have health insurance. To help students meet this requirement, UC Davis automatically enrolls all registered students in the UC Davis Student Health Insurance Plan (Davis SHIP). Fees for Davis SHIP coverage are automatically charged to the student's account each term along with registration fees: for

  • Students who want to be enrolled in Davis SHIP, enrollment is automatic-no action is required.
  • Students with comparable insurance, who do not want to be enrolled in Davis SHIP, must submit a Davis SHIP waiver application at http://shcs.ucdavis.edu/insurance by the published deadline; see the Academic Calendar. If a waiver is approved, Davis SHIP enrollment will be waived through the end of the academic year. An approved waiver is effective for the duration of the current academic year only. Waiver applications must be filed each academic year.

On campus medical and mental health care is available to all students at SHCS, even if Davis SHIP is waived.

More waiver information or information regarding benefits, eligibility, deadlines, or insurance coverage if your registration status changes, can be found at http://shcs.ucdavis.edu/insurance or by visiting the SHCS Insurance Services office at the Student Health & Wellness Center.
