Refund Policy


When a student registers, it is understood that he or she will pay in full all charges assumed at registration. Failure to attend classes does not alter the charges or entitle the student to a tuition refund. Students will not be permitted to receive grades, transcripts, or diploma unless the student account is paid in full.


Credit balances will remain on your student account and be applied to subsequent semesters, unless a refund is specifically requested, or is a refund from Title IV Federal Financial Aid. If the credit balance is from Title IV Federal Financial Aid and no refund has been requested, it will be refunded to the student (or parent if it is from a Plus Loan) at the end of the academic year. To apply for a refund students should access WebAdvisor, under 'Financial Information' there are two forms, one is 'Request Refund' - complete the information and submit it; and second, is 'Bank Information' if students want the refund electronically. Any new bank information must be pre-noted and we must receive information back from the bank that it is a valid account before any funds can be sent electronically. Students  will receive an email when their refund check is available. If students have selected an electronic deposit, there is a two day delay from the day they receive notice that the information has been sent to the bank and the actual deposit to their accounts. We must have written permission from the parent borrower to refund a credit balance from Parent Plus Loan to the student. If we do not receive written permission from the parent borrowing the loan by 9:00 am on the Wednesday prior to the refund being issued a paper check will be made out to the parent.

Committee on Refunds

An appeal for refund of tuition and fees may be made to the Committee on Refunds, provided that continued attendance and/or residence by the student is made impossible by reasons of serious illness (supported by a doctor's certificate) or other emergencies; which, in the opinion of the committee, are clearly beyond the control of the student.

An application for refund may be filed in person or by mail in the Student Records and Financial Services Office, and must be made in writing on the form provided for that purpose. If the student is prevented by illness or distance from obtaining the regular form of such application, he or she should address a letter to the Records Office indicating the courses to be dropped and carefully explain his or her reasons, together with supporting certifications.
