If you intend to withdraw from your studies, you must do so through Studielink. It is advisable that you communicate your wish to withdraw to your student advisor, the college dean, and the head of your programme. Your request for withdrawal will be passed on to Codarts, after which we will process your request.
Please note: you are personally responsible for cancelling your student grant (studiefinanciering) and student travel card through DUO.
Reimbursement of tuition fees
If you withdraw from your studies and communicate this through Studielink during the period from September 1 to May 31, you will be eligible for a refund of any excess fees you may have paid. In this case, you will only be required to pay tuition fees for the period during which you were enrolled.
You will be entitled to reimbursement of one-twelfth of the tuition fees payable for each remaining month of the academic year following your withdrawal. This applies to both the statutory tuition fees and the fees payable to our institution.
Please note: if you have received a Bewijs Betaald Collegegeld (Proof of Payment of Tuition Fees) from Codarts, you will not be eligible for a refund of the excess tuition fees paid. If you nevertheless want to be considered for a refund, you must submit to the Academic Service Center (ASC) the original Bewijs Betaald Collegegeld/Proof of Payment of Tuition Fees you received from Codarts.
Withdrawal or deregistration before September 1
If you withdraw your application for the new academic year through Studielink before September 1, you will not be required to pay tuition fees for the new academic year. Your direct debit mandate will be cancelled in this case, and any excess fees you may have paid for the new academic year will be automatically reimbursed.
