Financial Policies


If a student officially withdraws during the quarter, a refund, where applicable, will be made within 30 days. A student who leaves school without completing withdrawal procedures will be charged until proper arrangements have been made. The beginning of the quarter is considered to be the first day of class instruction.  Students withdrawing from classes during the quarter will qualify for the following rates of refund:

If withdrawal is:                                        Tuition refund will be:

      by the 7’th day of classes                                            100%

      by the 10’th day of classes                                            75%

      by the 22’nd day of classes                                            50%

A tuition refund may affect awarded financial aid. Students dropping all classes during this period will be charged a processing fee of $50 or 5% of tuition, whichever is less.

Itemized statements are issued each month giving an account of the previous month’s expenses.  Fixed expenses—tuition, required fees, room rent—for the quarter are charged at the beginning of each quarter. Variable expenses—including cafeteria, bookstore, and other charges—are billed as they are incurred.  All enrolled students receive copies of their statements each month. Students may request that a copy be mailed to a third party, such as a parent.
