Refunds

First-semester students who are not yet enrolled at DTU

Students who have paid tuition fees, but who for various reasons are not enrolled at DTU after all (e.g. did not qualify for a residence permit), can receive a full refund of their tuition fees after 1 September/1 February.

First-semester students who have commenced the first semester

Students who have enrolled at DTU and drop out of their studies before 1 October/1 March of their first semester at DTU have the right to a refund of 50 per cent of their tuition fees, excl. bank charges, regardless of the reason for dropping out. Only students who submit a written withdrawal request to the Office of International Education—no later than 1 October/1 March of their first semester at DTU—may receive a refund of 50 per cent of their tuition fees, excl. bank charges.

Other instances

In case of serious illness or death (self, partner or member of immediate family) it is possible to apply for a refund of the tuition fees for the semester already commenced. The application (including attached documentation) for a refund of tuition fees must be submitted in writing to the Office of International Education no later than three weeks after the request to withdraw from studies has been submitted to the Office of International Education. The Dean of the programme in question will make the decision in the matter.

Students who have paid for a full academic year, and who withdraw from their studies no later than 14 days prior to the start of the second semester of the academic year, have the right to a refund of the tuition fees, excl. bank charges, for the second semester.

Tuition fees will not normally be refunded to students after 1 October/1 March of their first semester at DTU. However, written applications for refunds will be considered in special cases (i.e. in cases where the applicant can prove that DTU has not lived up to its obligations). The application must be submitted in writing to the Office of International Education. The Dean of the programme in question shall make the decision in the matter.

Applications for refund of tuition fees that are submitted more than one year after payment will not be considered.
