Refund Percentage: 40%

Tuition Charge: $181.81 x 3 credit hours = $545.43.

Technology Fee Charge per year: $250

Technology Fee divided by number of credit hours per year: Assuming 33 credit hours per year for this sample calculation, the total Technology Fee for 1 credit hours is $7.57: $7.57 x 3 credit hours = $22.71

Total tuition and fees paid: $568.14.

Refund: ($545.43+22.71) x 40% = $227.256.
