Tuition Assistance Policies


McMurry University’s Tuition Assistance (TA) Policies

Add/Drop Policy:  

Adding and dropping classes is allowed until the Official Enrollment Date of each semester at no financial penalty.  However, the student must have changes approved by the Military Education Center, the Director of the McMurry-Dyess Program and/or Registrar’s office when using TA. After the Official Enrollment Date of each semester, there will be no refund for any dropped classes while the student is still enrolled in other classes.

Withdrawal Policy:  

You must provide your reason for withdrawal to the Director of the McMurry-Dyess Program in writing. A withdrawal is when all classes for the semester are dropped. Billing for TA is processed after the University’s refund period; therefore, students who withdraw within our refund period will be billed according to the refund schedules below.

Return of Tuition Assistance

If you are using TA to pay for your education and withdraw from a class prior to completing 60 percent of the class, the Department of Defense (DoD) requires that McMurry University return any unearned TA funds directly to the Military Service based on how much of the course you completed. You may owe a portion of your tuition to McMurry University and a portion to your Military branch.

If you withdraw, the amount of earned TA funds is calculated from the date of your official withdrawal. Your TA eligibility is determined based on the following formula:

Calendar days completed in the period
    Total calendar days in the period    =    Percent of TA Earned
