The institution expects students to keep their financial accounts current. Students are billed on a semester-to-semester basis and receive an account statement of tuition and fees. Full payment is due no later than the first day of class each semester. No student may attend semester classes until the full semester’s tuition has been paid either by check, money order, credit card or guaranteed student loan payment. Students in default of bursar payments may not pre-register, enroll or attend spring semester classes. Students dependent on government sponsored financial aid programs (both domestic and foreign), supplemental bank loans or bank financed tuition payment plans are advised to adhere to application deadlines to insure that their funds arrive at the school in a timely manner.
For the fall and spring semesters, the add/drop period is held during the first two weeks of each semester. Students leaving school for any reason are entitled to a refund according to the schedule indicated below.
Fall and spring semester refund policy for students who withdraw before the end of the:
First week of class 100% of tuition
Second week of class 90% of tuition
Third week of class 70% of tuition
Fourth week of class 60% of tuition
Fifth week of class 50% of tuition
After the Sixth week 0% of tuition
According to the provisions of the Higher Education Amendments of 1998, the refund calculation for students receiving Title IV funds are based on the number of days attended during the term. The portion of federal loans and grants the student earned is calculated on a percentage basis comparing the total number of calendar days in the semester to the number of days completed before the withdrawal. Once the 60 percent point of the enrollment period has lapsed, the student has earned 100 percent of the Title IV aid. The return of these funds may result in a balance due to the Academy and/or the federal government.
Registration and materials/services fees are not refundable.
