Medical Withdrawals

Financial Credit Policy for Medical Withdrawals


The University of Idaho does not generally issue refunds after the refund deadline.  However, in instances of medical withdrawals, to encourage students to continue pursuing their education, the University issues financial credits based on the chart below, subject to the following terms:

1. Financial credits are calculated based on the total tuition and fees charged.  
2. Financial credits are based on the effective date of the medical withdrawal, as determined by the authorized University official or committee.  However, the effective date for financial credit cannot be earlier than the date the student requests a medical withdrawal.  In instances where the effective date of a medical withdrawal is before the date a student requests a medical withdrawal, financial credits will be determined as of the date the student requests a medical withdrawal.
3. Financial credits may be used only by the student who was issued such credit.  It is not transferable or assignable to others.
4. Reduced fees arrangements, including, but not limited to, any reduced fees paid by individuals using the employee educational benefit, the employee spouse educational benefit, the employee dependent waiver benefit, the senior citizen waiver benefit, or any other institutional waivers are not eligible for financial credits. 
5. Special lab and course fees are non-refundable after the second week of the semester, unless otherwise specified by the department charging the fee, and are also not eligible for financial credits.  
6. Applicable federal Title IV financial aid funds will be returned to the Department of Education based on statutory regulations.  UI policies and protocols regarding scholarships and institutional aid will also apply.  Any financial credit received under this policy shall be automatically applied first to pay any debt owed by the student.  
a. When the results of the return of Title IV financial aid funds create an owing balance on the account, any financial credit will be automatically applied to the owing balance on the account.  If there is still an owing balance after the financial credit is applied, the student will be billed and the owing balance will be due within ten (10) days of the billing date.    
b. When the results of the return of Title IV financial aid funds and scholarships create a credit balance on the account, the student will not be issued a refund, but rather a financial credit will be placed in a holding account to be used by the student to pay tuition and fees in future semesters.  Once the student is registered and charged tuition and fees for a future semester, the student is responsible for requesting that Student Accounts apply the financial credit to pay tuition and fees posted on the student’s account.  
7. Any financial credit received under this policy will be valid for the following six semesters (with the summer counting as one semester).  For example, if financial credit is received for the Spring 2013 semester, such financial credit must be used by the Spring 2015 semester.
a. Students who are unable, for medical reasons, to use the financial credit before it expires may petition to request an extension of the expiration date, by following the appeal process described below.8. Student appeals under this policy are limited to (i) mistakes by the University in applying this policy, (ii) requests for extension of credit expiration due to medical reasons, and (iii) requests for a result different from that outlined in this policy due to exceptional circumstances that pose unusual hardships.  Appeals must be submitted to Vice President for Finance and Administration or designee (“VPFA”), must indicate which of the three reasons above is the basis for the appeal, and must include supporting documentation.a. In cases where exceptional circumstances pose unusual hardships, the VPFA may determine that a result different from that outlined in this policy is appropriate.9. Any time before the financial credit expires, a student who received a financial credit under this policy may elect to receive 50% of amount of financial credit in the form of a refund.  To do so, students must fill out the Medical Withdrawal Refund Election Form and provide it to Student Accounts before the financial credit expires.  This election is final and cannot be reversed.
