Tuition Refund Policy

We use cookies to personalize content, to provide social media features and to analyze our traffic. We also share information about your use of our site with our social media, advertising and analytics partners. You consent to our use of cookies if you continue to use our website.


Students who drop a course or courses may be entitled to a full or partial refund of tuition charges. In order to be eligible for refund of tuition, the student must formally drop by completing a Schedule Change Form or dropping courses online in Hawk’s Edge.

The amount of tuition that is refundable depends on the date the student formally drops courses. Enrollment deposits for new students
are non-refundable. Fees are non-refundable. Students who withdraw from courses after the refund period are fully responsible for payment for the courses.

The tuition refund schedule for official drop/withdrawal is published in the Academic Calendar and follows the pattern below:

Semester Courses

  • Through day 14 of semester – 100%
  • From day 15 to day 21 of semester – 50%
  • After day 21 of semester – 0%

Accelerated Term Courses

  • Through day 14 of term – 100%
  • After day 14 of term – 0%


Fees are non-refundable

Tuition Insurance

Consider tuition insurance to supplement and strengthen our refund policy.

We believe it’s important to offer an easy, affordable way to protect the investment your family has made in higher education. That’s why HNU has negotiated with GradGuard™ to provide our families with tuition insurance by Allianz Global Assistance featuring special plans and rates not available to the general public.

This coverage expands the scope of our refund policy by ensuring reimbursement for tuition, room and board and other fees for covered withdrawals at any time during the semester. Plans also include Student Life Assistance: a 24-hour emergency hotline that offers students and parents even greater peace of mind.

At HNU, we want the best for our students, and Allianz Global Assistance is the world-leader in specialty insurance and assistance—helping over 200 million people protect their tuition payments, travel plans and more each year.
