Extended Deadlines for Tuition, Fees, and Room and Board Refunds

August 28, 2020

Dear Students,

As we begin a new academic year under unprecedented circumstances, I share with you important updates to our policies regarding tuition, fees, and room and board refunds. We sincerely hope you stay with us this semester, but we want to give you the flexibility to make decisions that are right for you about living on campus and attending classes in person.

Tuition and Fees Refund Policy

In recognition of the uncertainty caused by COVID-19, we will provide a full refund of Fall tuition and ASLC fees, as well as the fees mentioned below, if you withdraw by September 8, 2020. From September 9 until November 2, refunds for withdrawals will be prorated following our standard policy, which you can find here.

We will not refund the New Student Orientation fee or the health and wellness fee, as those costs will have already been largely incurred by the College. Our standard policy on the student health insurance, media, and green energy fees allows for refunds until September 14, 2020, and remains unchanged. Course fees are refunded in full up to the add/drop deadline.

Room and Board Refund Policy

Because of COVID-19, we will allow you to terminate your room and board contract and receive a prorated refund of room and board charges, while still remaining enrolled in classes remotely or in person, if done no later than September 25, 2020.

If you have questions or wish to take action, please contact Student and Departmental Account Services at accountservices@lclark.edu. If you have questions specifically about the Room and Board Refund Policy, please contact Campus Living at living@lclark.edu.

Again, we hope you stay with us, but we want to give you the flexibility to make decisions that are right for you about living on campus and attending classes in person. We are continuing to work hard to make this semester a rewarding one for you as a student, and we’re so glad that you have joined us.

Sincerely,

Andrea Dooley
Chief Financial Officer and Vice President for Operations
