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 Day 7 of the term), the student will be refunded 100% of the assessment fees paid, not including the application fee and book costs incurred by the student.
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. Refunds will be made within 30 days.
If a student withdraws before or during the first week of the course, all assessment fees the student has paid will be fully refunded. If the leave or withdrawal date is after the first week of the course, refunds to the student will be prorated in accord with the chart below. The Application Fee and the cost of books are not refundable.
Effective Date of Withdrawal Refund Percentage
Withdraw prior to or during week #1 (until day 7) 100%
Withdraw during week #2 (day 8-14) 90%
Withdraw during week #3 (day 15-21) 75%
Withdraw during week #4 (day 22-28) 50%
Withdraw during week #5 (day 29-35) 25%
Withdraw after week #5 (day 36+) 0%
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 - 75% 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 during week #3. Since Student B paid the full balance, this student receives a 75% refund ($375 x .75 = $281.25).
Sample #3 - no refund
Student C 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 on day 30 (Week 5) 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.
