Refunds

Refund Policy

The College must anticipate for fiscal reasons that enrolled students will complete the term to which they were admitted. However, should it be necessary for any valid reason to withdraw prior to the end of a term, the amount of tuition refund is determined using the following schedule:

  • Before classes begin
    100% refund (all charges except the new student tuition deposit)
  • During first two weeks
    80% refund of tuition
  • During third week
    60% refund of tuition
  • During fourth week
    40% refund of tuition
  • During fifth week
    20% refund of tuition
  • Withdrawal after fifth week
    No refund

There is no refund of fees, room or board unless the student withdraws prior to the start of classes. Tuition deposits are non-refundable after May 1.

Withdrawal Process

A student who wishes to leave the College must contact the Office of Academic Records to officially withdraw.

A student who is granted a Leave of Absence through the Office of Academic Affairs may be considered withdrawn for financial aid purposes. The student's status will depend upon the length of the leave and the ability to complete courses in which he or she is enrolled.

Financial Aid Refund Policy

A withdrawn student's eligibility for a financial aid refund is dependent on several factors:

  • Length of enrollment periodĀ 
  • Length of actual enrollmentĀ 
  • Calculation of total aid earned

Withdrawn students who are eligible for federal financial aid are also subject to federal refunding rules. Eligibility for College and other funds is also recalculated.

The federal formula allows a student to keep aid that is earned based on the amount of time a student was enrolled. This calculation is performed upon receipt of the official notification from the Office of Academic Records.

A student's charges are determined using the institution's refund formula.
