Update - March 27, 2020 for UE Students

Room and Board Refund Policy for UE Students

Dear UE Community,

I understand that the world we live in today is much different than the one of two weeks ago. I know how difficult the stress and disruptions to this semester have been for students and families. Please know you have been foremost in our hearts and minds. For the last few weeks, our team at the University of Evansville has been focusing on our students’ return home, transitioning to online instruction, and many other changes to help our students, faculty, and staff. We have committed to timely updates and have sent out several communications in the past week, including:

  • the impact of Indiana’s Stay-at-Home Order on UE and our students,
  • the rescheduling of the Commencement Ceremony to Homecoming weekend, the morning of September 19, 2020, and
  • the announcement of a pass/fail grading option for students.

We have also been working diligently on a plan to credit room and board expenses. The University of Evansville will refund room and board charges for the Spring 2020 semester on a pro-rata basis, calculated as of March 17, 2020, as defined below.

  • The pro-rata refund will be applied to any outstanding balance with the University of Evansville. Any remaining balance will be refunded to the student. Students may elect to apply any refund to tuition or to room and board charges for the Fall 2020 semester.

  • If applicable, please complete the form to elect a refund or credit for the Fall 2020 semester room and board.

  • For students who have been approved to remain in University housing, a pro-rata refund will be calculated as of the date of checkout. Pro-rata refunds are available to students who have moved from university housing by April 3, 2020. Students may elect to apply any such refund to tuition, room and board charges for the Fall 2020 semester.

  • Any fraternity housing adjustments will be addressed by the individual fraternities except for Phi Gamma Delta, Phi Kappa Tau, and Tau Kappa Epsilon, which will follow the housing refund policy as outlined above. Fraternity members who have meal plans will receive a refund as outlined above.

  • Refunds will be processed by April 15, 2020, to the bank account on file with the Office of Student Financial Services. Students may verify or make changes to their bank account information in the Student Menu of WebAdvisor. If no bank account information is available, a paper check will be mailed to the student’s permanent home address.

If you have further questions about housing and dining credits, email StudentFinancialServices@evansville.edu. You can also visit our COVID-19 webpage for the latest information at www.evansville.edu/coronavirus.

We want you to stay connected wherever you are, and know we are here for you. Over the course of the last few weeks, we have made several important decisions – and always with the best interests of our students. We know it is much easier to walk to Ridgway or Olmsted Hall when you are on campus when you need assistance. Though you are not on campus, we are most certainly here and available to help. Should you have any questions about our residence reimbursement policy or any other matter that arises, please let us know.

Wishing you a Happy Purple Friday.
