Tuition Refund Policy

Students whose enrollment status changes as outlined below may be eligible for a refund of applicable tuition on a per diem basis. Tuition will be charged on a daily basis through the Course Withdrawal Period. Starting with the first day of each semester, refunds are calculated based on the more appropriate of either the date that the Office of Admissions and Records receives formal notice from a student regarding his or her decision to change enrollment status or the date that the student last attended class.

Fees are not refundable after the first day of the semester.

Table of Tuition Refund Schedule for complete withdrawal from all courses

 Tuition Refund Undergraduate and Graduate
100% of tuition and fees By the first day of the semester
100% of tuition only Within the first week of classes
70% of tuition only During Week 2 of classes
55% of tuition only From Week 3 to Week 4 of classes
NO REFUND After Week 4 of classes

A student who departs campus without first going through the official withdrawal process at the Office of Student Affairs will be deemed to have attended the semester as far as tuition and fee charges and refunds are concerned.

Table of Tuition Refund Schedule for dropped courses (while remaining enrolled in at least one course)

 Tuition Refund Undergraduate and Graduate
100% of tuition only Within the first two weeks of classes
55% of tuition only From Week 3 to Week 4 of classes
NO REFUND After Week 4 of classes

Students who officially drop courses but who remain enrolled in at least one course may be eligible for a refund of applicable tuition as described in the table above.

Non-attendance does not automatically withdraw a student from a course.

Annulled Registration

Students who take a leave of absence from the College voluntarily before the first day of classes may have their registration annulled. Tuition and fees are refunded in full. Such students are not included in College records as having registered for that semester, and new students will not secure any privileges for admission for any subsequent semester as returning students.

Cancellation of Registration or Suspension for Cause

For a student whose registration is canceled or who is suspended for cause from the College, tuition refunds follow the schedule in the Table above, unless specified otherwise in the disciplinary action taken.

The College hopes every student will be successful. However, if a student’s behavior is severely disruptive to the campus, or if, after considerable deliberation, he or she is judged by the College Judicial Committee to pose a danger to others, he or she will be asked to leave. The College may offer such a student the chance to complete coursework and earn credit off campus. Alternatively, the College may offer a tuition refund in accordance with Table 4.5.

Leave of Absence

A matriculated student in good standing who is granted a leave of absence for personal circumstances may be entitled to a refund of applicable tuition as described in the table above. An approved leave of absence maintains a student’s matriculated status during the leave period. Students who have been granted a leave are not required to apply for readmission to register for their return semester.

A student who departs campus without first going through the official process to request leave at the Office of Student Affairs, however, will be deemed to have attended the semester as far as tuition and fee charges and refunds are concerned.

Official Withdrawal

Official withdrawal removes a student from his or her academic program and removes the student’s matriculated status. Students who do not plan to return to the College must notify the Office of Student Affairs and complete the official withdrawal procedures. Such students may be entitled to a refund of applicable tuition as described in the table above. Fees are not refundable after the first day of the semester.

Administrative Withdrawal

Degree-seeking students who have not attended courses and have failed to request an official leave of absence will be administratively withdrawn by the College and must apply for readmission through the Office of Admissions and Records to continue studies toward a degree. The effective date of the withdrawal is defined as the last known date of attendance, which may negatively impact a student’s financial aid and/or tuition bill.

Petition for Refund 

Under extenuating circumstances, students may petition for a refund of tuition. Fees are non-refundable. Petitions should be submitted to the Office of Admissions and Records to be reviewed by a committee.
