Refund Policy

An enrollee may cancel the enrollment agreement without penalty or obligation within 3 business days (excluding Saturday, Sunday, and state and federal holidays) of signing the agreement. Refunds will be processed within 30 calendar days and include all tuition and fees paid. After three days, if the enrollee cancels prior to or on the first day of instruction, the University will refund all paid fees except the registration fee. Students who cancel during the first seven days of the academic term will not be assessed a tuition charge.

Cancellation requests must be received by the Registrar’s Office within the first seven days of the term. Upon termination, the student is charged for actual books and other supplies received. If the student fails to return class materials in their original condition (open kits, courseware, and books that have been written in will not be acceptable for return) within 10 days from the last day of attendance, the University will deduct the costs from the refund, calculated according to the federal, state, and institutional policies. The University does not charge for textbooks or materials the student did not receive. Examples of refund calculations are available in the Financial Aid Office.

A student may withdraw from the school any time after the cancellation period and receive a pro rata refund if they have completed 60 percent or less of the scheduled hours in the current payment period in their program of study through the last day of attendance. The refund will be less a registration or administration fee, not to exceed $150, and less any deduction for equipment not returned in good condition, within 30 days of withdrawal. If this percentage is greater than 60%, the student earns 100% of the disbursed Title IV, HEA funds or aid that could have been disbursed.

To determine a refund under this section, a student shall be deemed to have withdrawn from a program of instruction when any of the following occurs:

  • The student notifies the institution of the withdrawal or as of the date of the student’s withdrawal, whichever is later.
  • The institution terminates the student’s enrollment due to the student’s failure to maintain satisfactory progress; failure to abide by the rules and regulations of the institution; absences more than maximum set forth by the institution; and/or failure to meet financial obligations to the University.
  • The student has failed to attend class for 14 days.
  • The student fails to return from a leave of absence.

To determine the amount of the refund, the date of the student’s withdrawal shall be deemed the last date of recorded attendance. The amount owed equals the daily charge for the program during the billing period (total institutional charge, minus non-refundable fees, divided by the number of days in the billing period), multiplied by the number of days scheduled to attend, prior to withdrawal. To determine when the refund must be paid, the student shall be deemed to have withdrawn at the end of 14 days.

For programs beyond the current “payment period,” if a student withdraws prior to the next payment period, all charges collected for the next period will be refunded. If any portion of the tuition was paid from the proceeds of a loan or third party, the refund shall be sent to the lender, third party or, if appropriate, to the state or federal agency that guaranteed or reinsured the loan. Any amount of the refund more than the unpaid balance of the loan shall be first used to repay any student financial aid programs from which the student received benefits, in proportion to the amount of the benefits received, and any remaining amount shall be paid to the student.

Tests and supplies not used are not charged to the student. Any refund amount will be adjusted for the cost of testing and supplies not returned in good condition within 10 calendar days of withdrawal or termination.
