Refund Policy

Cancellation Policy

Students who cancel their enrollment within 5 days of signing the enrollment agreement will receive a full refund of any assessment fees paid to the Seminary. If a student must withdraw for any reason during Week 1 (up to 11:59pm ET on Saturday of the first week), the student will be refunded 100% of the assessment fees paid, not including the application fee and book costs incurred by the student. 

Refund Policy (view refund chart here)

Students are responsible for the full amount of their assessment fees for the courses in which they enrolled. The refund of fees is determined by the date of the student’s withdrawal or termination in relation to the cancellation and/or withdrawal policies. 

 

As a time-based refund policy, students who never begin or cancel enrollment before the course begins will receive a full refund. If a student must withdraw for any reason during Week 1, the student will be refunded 100% of the assessment fees paid, not including the application fee and book costs incurred by the student. If the student withdraws during Weeks 2-4, the student will be refunded 50% of the assessment fee, not including the application fee and book cost incurred by the student. If the student withdraws between Weeks 5-8, no assessment fees, application fee or book cost will be refunded to the student.

Sample Calculations

Sample #1 - 100% refund

Student A enrolled in a 3-credit course. In accord with our assessment fee structure the student was billed for $375 (3 credits x $125 per credit hour). Student A cancels enrollment prior to the end of the first Friday of the term. For this student, 100% of the fees are refunded.

Sample #2 - 50% refund

Student B enrolled in a 3-credit course. In accord with our assessment fee structure the student was billed for $375 (3 credits x $125 per credit hour). Student B paid the full balance upon receipt of the invoice. Student B notified the registrar she withdrew from the course after the 5-day cancellation period, but before the 4th Friday of the term. Since Student B paid the full balance, this student receives a 50% refund ($375 x .5 = $187.50).

 

Sample #2 - no refund

Student B signed up for a 2-credit course. In accord with our assessment fee structure, the student was billed for $250 (2 credits x $125 per credit hour). Student C paid the full balance of $250 upon receipt of the invoice. However, Student C notified the registrar after the 4th Friday of the term that he was withdrawing from the course. Because Student C completed more than 50% of the course, he will not receive a refund and is responsible for the full amount of the assessment fees for the course.
