If a student drops a course or withdraws from Alliant International University, he or she will be entitled to a credit according to the Tuition Refund Policy Schedule found in the Alliant Catalog, found at

Any student who withdraws from the University and is a recipient of student loans will have his or her costs and eligible loans prorated according to Title IV guidelines.

Students on financial aid who withdraw from a course(s) must contact their financial aid counselor for assistance in determining the impact this action has on their student account balance and financial aid prior to dropping classes. After a credit balance occurs on a student account, refunds and return of funds to lenders will follow appropriate regulations. Refunds will be remitted to the student after all lenders have been paid, if applicable.


Refunds to those receiving Veteran benefits are subject to the rules of the Veterans’ Administration. Refunds under this policy will be on a prorated basis of the unused portion of the tuition.

If the student is a financial-aid recipient, credit balances resulting from tuition adjustments under the withdrawal policy will be refunded to the appropriate financial-aid program and lender. A financial-aid calculation will be completed to determine what financial-aid ramifications will occur based on the student’s official date of withdrawal. A student may be required to return funds to the financial-aid program and lender if the student is no longer eligible for benefits received based on this calculation.


A degree application fee of $100 is charged to each fourth-year student eligible for a degree of Doctor of Jurisprudence. This fee is assessed whether or not the student intends to attend the graduation ceremony.


The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, prohibits the release of educational records without the specific written consent of the student or alumnus. Students may request copies of their records by writing to the Law School. There is a $10 fee for each transcript requested.
