From 56 - 66 days after classes start - 40% credit of tuition and board
More than 66 days after classes start - 0% credit of tuition and board
NOTE: Days listed above are calendar days and include weekends and holidays.
Refund calculations will be based upon the date the student begins the official withdrawal process. Days listed above are calendar days and include weekends and holidays. In cases where a student stops attending all of his/her classes without officially withdrawing, refund calculations will be done at 50% unless the student attended a class later than 55 days up to 66 days after the start of classes, the refund will be calculated at 40%. If the student attended later than 66 days after the start of classes there will be no refund.
