Refund & Withdrawal Policy

Funds in excess of institutional costs are issued on the third Friday of the fall and spring terms and then ongoing on each Friday. Refund Request Forms must be completed in the Student Accounts Office by the close of business on Monday in order to be processed.

Refunds are issued to the student unless their account has a Parent Plus Loan. In this case, the parent listed on the loan will need to provide written authorization to release the refund to the student.

The Student Accounts Office will not process refunds that include balances of “Pending Aid”.

Students making schedule adjustments that change their status from full-time to part-time or reduce their part-time load after the first five days of a semester or the first two days of a summer term will not have any adjustments in tuition charges unless they withdraw from the College. For a student withdrawing from the College because of illness or for other reasons approved by the College, the following refund schedule will be used:

Room
A student withdrawing from the College during a semester or summer term will receive no refund of room charges.

All fees are nonrefundable.

Board
A student withdrawing from the College during a semester, for any reason, will be refunded a part of the charges for board proportionate to the number of days of the semester remaining after the meal ticket is surrendered.

Financial Aid
Refunds of financial aid are a separate calculation to comply with federal regulations.

The calculations include the length of the enrollment period, unpaid institutional charges, all educational costs for the enrollment period and amounts paid toward institutional charges from financial aid and cash paid by the student. Students who consider withdrawing or reducing hours below full-time are advised to contact the Financial Aid Office.

POLICY FOR A STUDENT WITHDRAWING FROM A COURSE
