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:
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.
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A student who is granted a Leave of Absence through the Office of Academic Affairs may be considered withdrawn for financial aid purposes.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.
A withdrawn student's eligibility for a financial aid refund is dependent on several factors:
Withdrawn students who are eligible for federal financial aid are also subject to federal refunding rules.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.
