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 Change of Registration form was submitted to the Associate Director, Registration and Student Records, not on the last day of class attended. Therefore, it is imperative that students see the Associate Director, Registration and Student Records, immediately upon dropping a class, dropping the program, or changing programs. Meeting with your advisor does not constitute meeting with the Associate Director, Registration and Student Records.

Refunds will be calculated according to the following schedule:

Effective Date of Withdrawal Percentage of Refund
End of add/drop period 100%
Second week of term 75%
Third week of term 50%
Fourth week of term 25%
Fifth week of term or later 0%

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.
