Tuition Refund Policy

Term/semester charges are defined as tuition and Room & Board (if applicable). Students from Georgia should view the Refund Policy for Georgia residents.

Tuition is applicable to all students, including those on approved off-campus programs including internships and study abroad programs. Student Health Insurance, Program Fees, and Orientation Fee are nonrefundable, if applicable.

To the extent that any charges due to the university remain unpaid, no refund check will be issued. No tuition or fees will be assessed for terms/semesters that you do not register/enroll.

If you withdraw (or become withdrawn) from the university prior to the end of the academic year, you may have your financial aid adjusted, if applicable. Institutional grants and scholarships will be reduced in proportion to any tuition credit received.

The distribution formula for the institutional refund to the Federal Student Financial Aid program shall be calculated according to federal regulations. Any refund due will be issued within 45 days after the date that the university was first notified of the withdrawal.

University Enrollment Dispute
If you leave the university due to extenuating circumstances without officially withdrawing, you may submit a university enrollment dispute within 30 days after the end of the term in dispute. No withdrawal disputes will be considered after that time. 

You must present supporting documentation that demonstrates serious and compelling reasons justifying the withdrawal, and extenuating circumstances justifying its retroactive nature.

No adjustments to tuition and fees or financial aid will be made until the dispute is researched and either approved or denied. Decisions will be made within 10 business days and you will receive notification via an e-mail sent to the e-mail address you provided on the dispute form.

Refer to the Student Handbook for policies regarding Return of IV Funds, Allocation of Refunds.
