Refund of Tuition payments - Tuition is not paid in advance. The first tuition payment is made in the month following enrollment, and therefore after educational services to the student have begun. Because the institution is continuously providing educational services, the student's monthly tuition payments fund these services daily until such a time as the student's tuition in full or the student is officially withdrawn according to the withdrawal policy. The institution is dedicated to providing ongoing service during the entire period of the student's enrollment.
These services include (but are not necessarily limited to) academic advising, program-level course study guides, personal online program guide, qualified faculty support, bookstore services, dedicated telephone and email communication services, administrative services, program consultation, grade and transcript record keeping, secure data warehousing, secure international banking services for the payment of tuition and fees, official Web site services, regular information messages, and opportunities for external experiences and services. It is the student's responsibility to take advantage of these services, and work toward program completion. Therefore, since no tuition is actually paid in advance of services rendered, there is no tuition refund.
Withdrawal - Withdrawal notice must be made by at least one of these methods:
Discontinuance of lesson submissions or failure to make tuition payments does not constitute a statement of withdrawal. Students who are experiencing study or financial difficulties should first seek consultation before making a final decision. The University provides several special options for students who need assistance. A student's financial obligation to the University continues until receipt of an official request for withdrawal.
