Tuition Refund

As the College incurs expenses in advance for the entire academic year, a tuition refund schedule has been developed to reflect an equal sharing of the loss when a student withdraws.  Students who officially withdraw from all courses enrolled at the College, or are dismissed, will receive refunds according to the following schedule:

Semester Week of Withdrawal Refund Percentage
Prior to the beginning of the semester 100
End of week 1 90
End of week 2 70
End of week 3 50





The beginning of each semester is defined by the academic calendar and not individual course dates.
