The following Refund Policy is current as of April 2021 and is applicable to all students unless otherwise noted in their Enrollment Agreement. Please refer to the school catalog and the Enrollment agreement for the most current policy.
Refunds are made within forty-five (45) days from the date of official or unofficial withdrawal. Refunds are made directly to the source of payment. Deposits or down payments shall become part of the tuition.

• When a notice of withdrawal is given within the first five (5) scheduled days of instruction, the college will refund full tuition and other instructional fees and retain the registration fee.

21% - 50% 50%
51% and over 0%

A day of instruction is defined as any day in which a class is scheduled for the student’s program of study.

Percentage of term completed is calculated by the number of calendar days between the official term start date and the student’s last day of attendance divided by the total number of days between the official term start and end dates. The percentage is rounded to the nearest whole number.
