Students who provide written notice of cancellation within three days (excluding Saturday, Sunday, and federal and state holidays) of paying tuition and/or the payment processing fee, but before the first class, are entitled to a refund of all monies paid, excluding the nonrefundable application fee. Refunds will be provided within thirty (30) calendar days of receiving notice of cancellation.
General Refund Policy
The following tuition refund policy applies to all programs/courses and to all students except those who reside in, Florida, Indiana and Wisconsin.
Students are monitored during the first week of each course for signs of activity such as downloading readings, posting to discussion boards, submitting assignments, and completing quizzes and tests. Students who do not demonstrate activity in their courses during the first week are administratively withdrawn or cancelled; the effective day is the 5th day of the course. Students who are administratively withdrawn/cancelled from the course for non-participation will receive a 100% tuition refund. This refund does not include any applicable non-refundable Application and Payment Processing fees, Technology or Library fee, or Program Conferral fees. Refunds will be issued within thirty (30) calendar days.
Participation in courses is the responsibility of the student. If a student remains enrolled in a course after the Unregister Period ends (Friday of the first week of the course), he/she will remain enrolled in the course through the end of the term. Students are financially and academically responsible for their enrollment in courses if they are active beyond the first week.
If the student withdraws or is terminated from any program course or program and the College has received any monies for tuition or fees in excess of the student’s obligations, the College will refund such excess to the appropriate party(ies) to eliminate any outstanding balances for any student financial aid received by or with respect to the students account.
Withdrawal from Program or Single Course
A student must submit a Change of Status Form in order to withdraw from the program or from a single course. The form must be received by the Drop Date - the first Friday of the course-in order to receive a full refund of tuition paid. Technology fee refund eligibility will be dependent on student usage and is not pro-rated unless required by applicable state law. Students, including those who have been dismissed, are liable to pay for each course taken or not dropped by the Drop Date at the individual course cost. If the student has paid for the entire program upfront, the program cost, less this liability will be refunded to the student.
Students who reside in Florida, Indiana and Wisconsin should refer to the College Catalog for state-specific refund or cancellation policies.
