Graduate Tax Program Summer Session

Dropping a Class

Once registered for a class, students may drop or withdraw from it by submitting a drop form or e-mailing an unequivocal statement that they wish to drop the class to Nick Robertson at Nick.Robertson@nyu.edu.

Note: Continuing students may not withdraw from a summer class online by using the online COURSES registration system.

The date of receipt by the Law School of the drop form or drop request, not the last date of attendance in class, is considered the official date of the student's withdrawal. It is this official date that serves as the basis for computing any refund granted to the student. Registration and services fees are non-refundable after a certain date, and tuition becomes non-refundable after a certain date, regardless of whether a student has attended a class in person or viewed class videos. Online courses additionally have a limit on how many course videos can be launched before tuition and fees become non-refundable.

The summer refund schedule differs on a course-by-course basis, and those deadlines can be found in the summer registration form.

Refunds of tuition

Please note that registering for a class incurs tuition and fee liability. When we use the term “refund” we are referring to a reduction in that liability, not just the situation where we return some portion of the money we have already received from you. Thus, if you register for a class and have not yet paid for the class, you are still liable for the cost of the course. Please do not register for a course without familiarizing yourself with the rules and deadlines regarding refunds, i.e., reducing tuition and fee liability. 

Refunds of tuition for dropped classes will be granted according to the following schedules. 

For all online-only courses: (not including the online sections of Taxation of Intellectual Property, Tax Policy, and State Taxation of Native Americans)

  • Withdraw by Friday, June 7, 2019 and having viewed fewer than three class sessions
    • 100% Tuition and registration fees
  • Withdraw by Friday, June 14, 2019 and having viewed fewer than four class sessions 
    • 100% Tuition, no refund of  registration fees  
  • Withdraw after June 14 but before July 2, 2019 and having viewed fewer than 7 class sessions
    • 55% Tuition, no refund of registration fees
  • Withdraw after July 2, 2019 or after watching 7 or more class sessions
    • NO REFUND

For classes that meet on campus and are also offered online:

A separate refund schedule applied for “combined” courses. This refers to both the on campus and online sections of: Taxation of Intellectual Property, Tax Policy, and State Taxation of Native Americans:

  • Withdraw prior to the first class meeting or the first posting of video
    • 100% Tuition and registration fees
  • Withdraw before the 2nd meeting/video posting* of the class
    • 100% Tuition, no refund of registration fees
  • Withdraw after the 2nd meeting/video posting* of class
    • NO REFUND

*Refunds for the online sections of these classes are given relative to how many videos have been posted, and not relative to whether students have watched that video or not. Note that no refunds will be given for the online sections of this course once the third class has met and has been posted, even if a student has not watched any class sessions.

Please note: Courses with insufficient enrollment will be cancelled with a full refund of tuition and fees.
