A student is entitled to a full refund of tuition and non-instructional fees (where applicable) in the event that courses are cancelled or a student’s registration is cancelled by the CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies (CUNY SLU).

For students who wish to drop a course, a proportionate refund of tuition may be made as outlined below and can be found within the Academic Calendar. For mailed requests, the postmark date determines qualification for the refund. Refund will be made in the form of initial payment. Students enrolled under special program initiatives may have adjusted refund dates. No fees are refunded due to withdrawal.

Drop/withdrawal from course:

  • Drop before the official starting day of classes for the semester – 100%
  • Drop within one week of the official starting day of classes for the semester – 75%
  • Drop within two weeks of the official starting day of classes for the semester – 50%
  • Drop within three weeks of the official starting day of classes for the semester – 25%
  • Withdrawal subsequent to the third week of the official starting day of classes for the semester – none

This schedule is not applicable to withdrawals due to the military, Peace Corps, or leaves for other national service, and is subject to change by action of the Board of Trustees of The City University of New York (CUNY). If any of the above circumstances are the basis for your withdrawal, please contact the Bursar’s office at Bursar@slu.cuny.edu
