Withdrawals and Refunds

  • The College views registration as the student's official statement of intent to enroll for the semester.
  • Once registered, the student is financially obligated for the payment of all applicable tuition and fees unless a Notice of Intent to Withdraw form is filed in the Office of Academic Advisement on the First Floor of RIC. 
  • The date of withdrawal will in every case be considered to be on or after the date on which a Notice of Intent to Withdraw form has been completed. 
  • Should a student fail to follow the withdrawal procedure outlined above, no refund will be made.
