Financial Aid Refund Policy
In the event a student has received financial aid and withdraws from a program, a statutory schedule is used to determine the amount of Title IV funds that student has earned as of the date he or she ceases to attend. The amount of Title IV Program assistance earned is based on the amount of time the student spent in academic attendance. Up through the 60% point in each payment period or period of enrollment, a pro-rata schedule is used to determine the amount of Title IV funds the student has earned at the time of withdrawal. After the 60% point in the payment period or period of enrollment, the student has earned 100% of the Title IV funds.

Adult Education Refund Policy
The Adult Education refund policy states:

  • Students may request a full refund of fees prior to the class start date.
  • If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, students may either transfer to another class or receive a full refund of fees.
