Refund Policies

(Subject to change without notice)

Refund Policy for all Students attending the institution: Refund of institutional charges applies to any student attending the institution. A return of Title IV funds (Federal Financial Aid) is the unearned amount of institutional charges that must be returned to the Student Financial Aid (SFA) programs for a student who received federal funds and who has ceased attending school. Refer to the Return of Title IV Funds policy in the “Financial Aid” section of the catalog.

Students who drop a class or classes prior to completion of 9% of the term or period of enrollment for the class or classes shall receive a 100% refund of tuition and fees for the credit hours attributable to the class or classes dropped. There shall be no refunds for partial drops after completion of 9% of the period of enrollment. Students who totally withdraw from all classes during the term or period of enrollment shall receive a pro-rated refund of institutional charges (tuition/fees/room/board). Any refunds provided as a result of dropped classes may be returned to Title IV aid accounts and repayment calculations may be required.
