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 described below. 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; the Institute does not automatically withdraw students from classes even if a student fails to attend the class. Refunds will be calculated based on the date the required paperwork was submitted to the Registration and Student Records Office, not on the last day of class attended. Therefore, it is imperative that students see the Registration and Student Records Office immediately upon dropping a class, dropping the program, or changing programs. Meeting with your advisor does not constitute meeting with the Registration and Student Records Office. Refunds will be calculated according to the following

Effective Date of Withdrawal Percentage of RefundPercentage of Refund
End of add/drop period100%
Second week of term75%
Third week of term50%
Fourth week of term25%
Fifth week of term or later0%


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.
