Refund Policies

Enrollment in the College constitutes a contract binding the student and parents for the stated charges for the semester.

This arrangement is necessary because the college contracts for faculty and other supporting commitments for the entire year based upon the enrollment at the beginning of the fall semester.

A refund policy has been adopted to partially reimburse students for unexpected withdrawals and also permit the college to maintain its contractual commitments.


Tuition, Room and Board Fees

If written notification of a decision not to enroll is received by the Student Financial Services Office prior to the first day of classes, all paid fees (exclusive of the enrollment deposit) are completely refunded. Thereafter, tuition and general fees are refunded on a prorated basis during the first four weeks of the term. Any part of a week is considered a full week. No refund will be made if a student withdraws after the fourth week. No part of the room fee is refundable. Refunds for the cost of meals are prorated upon withdrawal.
