Withdrawals and Refunds

Any student wishing to withdraw from all classes prior to the start of the term should notify the school immediately. Students who withdraw during the add/drop period will receive a full refund of tuition and fees. If they have completed an official Change of Schedule form, signed by the Dean for Academics, and filed with the Registrar's office. A withdraw becomes official on the date that the Registrar receives a completed withdraw form. 

After the add/drop date, refunds or credits on balances due for students who have withdrawn are based on tuition and fees only (acceptance deposits are non-refundable). If a student withdraws before completing 20% of the semester, based upon the percentage of the enrollment period the student attended before withdrawing, a 20% refund of tuition and fees may be granted due to: 

  • an incapacitating illness of such duration or severity, as confirmed in writing by a physician, that the completion of the semester is impossible
  • student’s call to active military duty
  • death of a member of the student’s immediate family (parent, spouse, child or sibling) 

If a student withdraws after completing 20% of the semester, there will be no refund or credit of tuition and/or fees Under Any Circumstances.
