Tuition Assistance Refund Policy Calculation
When a student officially withdraws from a course, the date of the withdrawal will be used as the last date of attendance. If a student receives an F for a course, it is considered an unofficial withdrawal.
For unofficial withdrawals, Boise State will determine the last date of attendance by reviewing the last date of activity within a course. For online courses, the university will determine the last date of attendance based on the last time a student contributed to the class or submitted an assignment. For in-person courses, the university will reach out to the professor to determine the last date of attendance.
Once the last date of attendance has been determined, we use the following formula to recalculate your Tuition Assistance (TA) eligibility:
number of days completed / total days of the course = percent earned
Return of funds
Determining eligibility for TA is class-specific. The start and end dates will be used for each class to determine eligibility. Using this formula, Boise State will be required to return some or all of the TA awarded (if you did not complete at least 60% of each course) back to the military. This could possibly create a balance on the student’s account.
The student is still liable for the portion of the tuition TA did not cover. For example, if a student drops past the refund deadline, Boise State will bill the percentage of the TA as per the policy; however, they will still need to pay the remaining balance on their account.
