Refunds are issued to:
- Students who drop a portion or all of their classes online through CUNYfirst prior to the first official day of classes receive a 100% refund of all tuition and fees, excluding non-refundable application fees.
- Students who drop a class online through CUNYfirst during the first three weeks of classes may be eligible for a partial refund. If the student is paying a full-time rate and they are still enrolled full-time after the drop, no refund is due.
Once the term begins, refunds are issued when:
- Hunter College eliminates a class. (However, if the student is paying a full-time rate and they are still enrolled full-time after the drop, no refund is due.)
- Other funds are paid to a student’s account after liability is set at the end of the third week of classes and all tuition and fee charges are paid in full.
Refunds are not issued for official withdrawals (W grades), unofficial withdrawals (WU, WN grades), no-credits (NC grades) and failing grades (F grades). Refunds are automatically applied towards any outstanding tuition balance except for Financial Aid exceptions described later.
