Important Note:

Students must notify the University in writing if they plan to withdraw.  Non-payment of tuition & other charges, non-attendance in classes or notification to an instructor do not constitute appropriate notification of withdrawal or cancellation. A student who fails to withdraw or cancel officially waives the right for consideration of any refunds.  Please see the Refund Policy Page for more information.

The University reserves the right to change costs, dates and procedures at its discretion.

Outstanding/Delinquent Balances:

If term balances are not paid, students will not be able to register for future terms, receive grades or transcripts until the balance is paid in full. If an account remains delinquent, the account will be placed with a 3rd party collection agency. The student will be responsible for all past due charges as well as collection agency contingency fees (up to a maximum of 50% of the delinquent account balance), late payment penalties, reasonable attorney’s fees, court costs and the account will be reported to the credit bureau.
