Prepayments will be refunded in full on payments made prior to late validation day, with the exception of application fee and commitment deposits. Any change of classes must be done during the drop and add period (the first three days of classes for any semester). All charges stand after that time.
For any student completely withdrawing from the college, the following policy applies:
On 1 - 3 days after classes start 100% credit of all charges
From 4 - 11 days after classes start 90% credit of tuition and board
From 12 - 22 days after classes start 80% credit of tuition and board
From 23 - 33 days after classes start 70% credit of tuition and board
From 34 - 44 days after classes start 60% credit of tuition and board
From 45 - 55 days after classes start 50% credit of tuition and board
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
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.
Fees and room charges are non-refundable after the third day classes start. Students who move off campus after classes begin will forfeit the room charge for that semester.
