STudent Withdrawal Policy

Westmont makes refunds under certain conditions. Students never receive refunds of their deposits. Refunds for tuition, fees, board, and housing depend on the time the student officially exits. Students must submit an exit form to the Registrar’s Office before exiting in order to receive a refund of any student charges. The exit date is set as the day the student notifies the Student Records Office that the student is leaving school.

A schedule of refunds for first-semester students is available at the Business Office, but will be no less than the schedule of refunds for continuing students which follows. A variation of the refund policy may apply for students who are federal financial aid recipients.

College Housing

After college housing has been reserved, room cancellation will result in a $150 fee even if the student has not yet occupied the campus housing.

An additional $100 late fee is charged for cancellations after August 1 (for fall semester) or December 15 (for spring semester).

Furthermore, once a student occupies a campus room and then cancels it after the start of the semester, only a percentage of the entire semester room charge will be refunded less the applicable preceding cancellation fees according to the schedule below. To cancel, complete an official check out with your Resident Director.

Meal Plan

When a student withdraws or checks-out from a campus residence prior to the start of the meal plan—and does not use any portion of that meal plan—a 100% refund of the semester board charge is made. Otherwise, a refund is based upon the week of the withdrawal or check-out (whichever is later), detailed in the schedule above.
