Tuition Refund Policy

Students who withdraw from classes may be entitled to a refund of a portion of tuition according to the policy and refund schedule as follows:

Effective Date of WithdrawalPercentage of Refund
End of add/drop period100%
Second week of term50%
Third week of term50%
Fourth week of term or later 0%


Only tuition may be refunded; all fees will be due as charged regardless of when refund requests are submitted. In order to obtain a refund, students must officially withdraw from classes through the Registration and Student Records Office. Students must officially withdraw from a class or classes for which they seek a refund. Students that fail to meet the attendance policy are subject to administrative withdrawal from the applicable course (please refer to the student handbook for additional information about the attendance and administrative withdrawal policy). Refunds will be calculated based on the date the required paperwork or notification was submitted to the Registration and Student Records Office, this is commonly referred to as the date of determination, not on the last day of class attended (please refer to the student handbook for Return of Title IV funds, if applicable). Therefore, it is imperative that students contact the Registration and Student Records Office immediately upon dropping a class, dropping the program, or changing programs. Meeting with your program director does not constitute meeting with the Registration and Student Records Office.

If a student withdraws and is on a payment plan, the balance of the tuition becomes due immediately. The Institute will not grant a refund if a student withdraws or is forced to withdraw from a course for disciplinary reasons, including violation of the Institute’s academic dishonesty policy.
