Tuition refund dates are published in the UNM schedule of classes. Tuition refund requests that occur after the published deadlines are reviewed by the Dean of Students Office and Bursar's Office. Where you submit your tuition refund depends upon the reason you are requesting the refund. The Dean of Students Office will review appeals in the following circumstances:
If a student is unable to continue their course(s) due to a serious medical or mental health condition, this may constitute grounds for a refund. A medical or mental health emergency of an immediate family member (spouse, UNM registered domestic partner, children, parents, mother-in-law, father-in-law, grandparents, brothers, or sisters) may also be considered. Medical or mental health problems that the student was aware of before the published refund deadlines might be considered if the appeal includes reasons for not dropping the courses in a timely manner. Refunds normally do not exceed 50% of the tuition amount. Submit your Refund Appeals Request Form to the Dean of Students Office with documentation supporting your appeal request.
A student may be eligible for a refund as a result of a death in the immediate family (spouse, UNM registered domestic partner, children, parents, mother-in-law, father-in-law, grandparents, brothers, or sisters) that necessitates leaving the University. Appeals should include specifics (depression, handling of the estate, assuming family responsibilities that resulted because of the loss of a loved one). Refunds normally do not exceed 50% of the tuition amount.
