ALL APPLICATION AND MAILING CHARGES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.
With respect to tuition charges, the following cancellation and refund policies apply:
STUDENT’S RIGHT TO CANCEL
You may withdraw from the school at any time after the cancellation period (described above) and receive a pro rata refund if you have completed 60 percent or less, up to and including your last date of recorded attendance, of the scheduled days in the current payment period of your program. The refund will be less a registration or administration fee not to exceed $200.00, any non-refundable charges listed in the Enrollment Agreement and any deduction for equipment not returned in good condition. If you have completed more than 60% of the period of attendance for which you were charged, the tuition is considered earned and you will not receive any refund.
For the purpose of determining a refund under this section, a student shall be deemed to have withdrawn from a program of instruction when any of the following occurs:
For the purpose of determining the amount of the refund, the date of the student’s withdrawal shall be deemed the last date of recorded attendance. A pro rata refund will be the total amount owed by the student for the portion of the educational program provided subtracted from the amount paid by the student, calculated as follows: The amount owed equals the daily charge for the program (total institutional charge, minus non-refundable fees, divided by the number of days in the program), multiplied by the number of days the student was scheduled to attend, prior to withdrawal. For programs beyond the current “payment period,” if the student withdraws prior to the next payment period, all charges collected for the next period will be refunded.
If the student has received federal student financial aid funds, the student is entitled to a refund of moneys not paid from federal student financial aid program funds. If any portion of the tuition was paid from the proceeds of a loan or third party, the refund shall be sent to the lender, third party or, if appropriate, to the state or federal agency that guaranteed or reinsured the loan. Any amount of the refund in excess of the unpaid balance of the loan shall be first used to repay any student financial aid programs from which the student received benefit in proportion to the amount of the benefit received, and any remaining amount shall be paid to the student.
