Refund Policy and Procedures

Refund Policy and Procedures

Students who withdraw from all courses in a term may be provided with a refund of tuition and fees according to the following policy: 

Students who withdraw prior to the first day of classes for the term are entitled to a 100% refund of tuition and fees.

The refund amount for students withdrawing from the institution on or after the first day of classes shall be based on a pro rata percentage determined by dividing the number of calendar days in the semester that the student completed by the total calendar days in the semester. The total calendar days in a semester includes weekends, but excludes scheduled breaks of five or more days and days that a student was on a approved leave of absence. The unearned portion shall be refunded up to the point in time that the amount equals 60 per cent.

Students who withdraw from the institution when the calculated percentage of completion is greater than 60 per cent are not entitled to a refund of any portion of institutional charges.

Students who formally withdraw from the institution after the first 60 per cent (in time) of the period of enrollment are not entitled to a refund of any portion of tuition and fees.

Because of the specific nature of the instruction of Applied Music courses, lab fees, and workshops, no refunds of these funds will be made.
