Students who wish to withdraw or drop a course(s) or program must follow refund guidelines.
1. All tuition fees will be refunded if, prior to the beginning of the program, the applicant is not accepted by the University or if the student cancels within three (3) business days after signing the Enrollment Agreement. Application records will be kept on file for denied applicants for a period of two (2) years.
2. Cancellation after the third (3rd) business day, but before the first class, will result in a refund of all monies paid, with the exception of the $100.00 non-refundable application fee.
3. A Student can add or drop course(s) during the first week of classes without penalties. This period is known as the “add/drop period”.
4. Dropping a course(s) after completion of the first full week of classes will result in a prorated refund of tuition using the Refund Table:
