Refund Policy

https://slu.cuny.edu/tuition-and-financial-aid/tuition-fees/refunds/

Students are not held financially responsible for tuition or fees for courses dropped prior to the first official day of the semester or those that were cancelled by the CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies.

Students are financially responsible for courses they cancel as of the first official day of the semester and any day after. Tuition is proportionately charged per the date a student cancels their class or classes. Prorated tuition charges are set by the Academic Calendar and programmed in CUNYfirst. Once the proration period is over, tuition is billed at 100%. Fees are never prorated.
