Refunds of tuition are made upon the following basis if withdrawal has been approved by the Dean of the College and the Vice President for Business Affairs:
|On or before the first day of class||100% percent refund|
|Weeks 1 and 2||75%percent refund|
|Weeks 3 and 4||50% percent refund|
|Weeks 5 and 6||25% percent refund|
|After week 6||0% percent refund|
Board will be pro-rated based on the official date of withdrawal. Room rent is non-refundable. Fees are non-refundable. Federal financial aid will be calculated based on the U.S. Department of Education regulations. Institutional financial aid will be pro-rated in conjunction with tuition. The refunds will be mailed to the billing address.
If a student leaves the College at any time after entrance without the approval of the Dean of the College and the Vice President for Business Affairs, or because of suspension or dismissal, no tuition is refunded.
A student’s federal financial aid eligibility (including Federal Pell Grant, SEOG, Perkins Loan, Stafford Loan and PLUS loan) is recalculated if the student withdraws, drops out, is dismissed or takes a leave of absence prior to completing 60 percent of a semester. The amount of the Title IV Aid earned by the student is based on the percent of earned aid using the following formula: ‘percent earned’ equals the number of days completed up to the ‘withdrawal date’ divided by total days in the period of enrollment. The ‘withdrawal date’ is defined as the actual date the student began the College’s withdrawal process, the student’s last date of recorded attendance or the midpoint of the semester for a student who leaves without notifying the College. Federal financial aid is then returned to the federal government based on the percent of the unused aid using the following formula: The aid to be returned equals 100 percent minus the ‘percent earned’ (see above), times the amount of aid disbursed toward institutional charges. When the student owes funds to the College due to federal aid being returned, the student should contact the Office of Accounting Services to make arrangements to pay the balance.
Students who pay tuition on an installment basis through Tuition Management and who withdraw before the account is paid in full are not relieved from payment of the amount due, but will be credited according to the previous table.
Notwithstanding the provisions of the College’s refund policies, if any disciplinary action results in the suspension or expulsion of a student from the College, housing or any activity, the College may not refund the student’s tuition, fees or room and board charges.
