The Refund Policy is overseen by the University’s Senate Committee and all refunds are at the discretion of the University.
Prior to consideration for any refund or waiver, all necessary withdrawal or interruption of studies procedures must have been completed by the student and the student recorded as withdrawn in the Student Record System. To claim a refund, requests must be submitted in writing to the Finance Department along with any
necessary supporting documentation. Any refunds due will be made by the same method as the original payment, with the exception of cheque payments, which will be refunded by Bank Transfer.
Where a student has other outstanding debts to the University, any refund amount due may be offset to clear the outstanding balance. No refunds will be given if withdrawing from or interrupting studies on non-degree courses. In the event of a student failing to complete a programme of study, other than in the withdrawal situations described above, all outstanding fees owed to the University must be paid and no refunds will be due.
If a student who receives Federal Financial Aid withdraws, interrupts for more than 180 days or drops below half time attendance from their course, the University will recalculate the tuition fee liability and a return to Title IV (R2T4) calculation will be carried out as determined by the US Department of Education guidelines. The amount the University and the student need to return is calculated using the US Department of Education Return to Title IV worksheets (R2T4). Any unearned funds received by the University will be returned direct to the lender and the student notified. If any loan funds are to be returned by the student, the student will be notified by the University and they should repay these funds immediately in accordance with the terms of the promissory note.
