Tuition & Fees
The schedule of student charges is updated for each academic year and published in the student catalog, as excerpted below.
Schedule of Payments
Dissertation Committee Fee
If students obtain a loan to pay for the program, they are responsible for repaying the full loan amount plus any interest, less the amount of any refund. If they have received federal student financial aid funds, and they already paid the tuition, they may be entitled to a refund of the monies not paid from federal student financial aid program funds.
Cancellation and Refund Policy
After the end of this cancellation period, the student also has the right to withdraw from the program at any time. Should a student withdraw from the program, he or she will not be charged for future quarters. The percentage of the refund depends on the effective date of the withdrawal.
The student may withdraw from the school at any time after the cancellation period (described above) and receive a pro rata refund if the student has completed 60% or less of the scheduled days in the current payment period of program defined as a quarter term through the last day of attendance. The refund will be less a registration or administration fee not to exceed $250.00, and less any deduction for equipment not returned in good condition, within 45 days of withdrawal. If the student has completed more than 60% of the period of attendance defined as a quarter term for which the student was charged, the tuition is considered earned and the student will receive no refund.
For the purpose of determining a refund under this section, a student shall be deemed to have withdrawn from a program of instruction when any of the following occurs:
- The student notifies the institution of the student’s withdrawal or as of the date of the student’s withdrawal, whichever is later.
- The institution terminates the student’s enrollment for failure to maintain satisfactory progress; failure to abide by the rules and regulations of the institution.
- The student fails to return from a leave of absence.
​For the purpose of determining the amount of the refund, the date of the student’s withdrawal shall be deemed the last date of recorded attendance. For programs beyond the current “payment period,” defined as a quarter term, if the student withdraws prior to the next payment period, all charges collected for the next period will be refunded. If any portion of the tuition was paid from the proceeds of a loan or third party, the refund shall be sent to the lender, third party or, if appropriate, to the state or federal agency that guaranteed or reinsured the loan. Any amount of the refund in excess of the unpaid balance of the loan shall be first used to repay any student financial aid programs from which the student received benefits, in proportion to the amount of the benefits received, and any remaining amount shall be paid to the student. ​
If the student has received federal student financial aid funds, the student is entitled to a refund of moneys not paid from federal student financial aid program funds.
