IMPORTANT NOTE: All monies to be refunded in accordance with any provisions of this Refund and Cancellation policy will be refunded within thirty (30) days from the date that Hussian College School of Art™ determines a student’s last date of attendance, the date Hussian receives written notice of cancellation, or the date that a student fails to return from an approved leave of absence. The Refund and Cancellation policy will apply equally to students that are administratively terminated from a Hussian program. All refunds shall be paid to the student unless payment to a lender or other entity is required by the terms of a student financial aid program in which Hussian participates.
RETURN OF FEDERAL STUDENT AID
The amount of Federal assistance that a student receives and is ultimately retained to cover institutional charges is dictated by Federal Regulations. After the student has attended for sixty (60%) percent of the semester, all Federal student aid received by or on behalf of the student may be retained to cover institutional charges. If a student withdraws from a semester prior to completing sixty (60%) percent of the semester, a pro-rata share of the Federal student aid received must be returned to the aid source within forty-five (45) days of Hussian’s determination of withdrawal, or formal written withdrawal by the student. To determine the amount of Federal aid to be retained to cover institutional charges, Hussian must divide the number of days of the semester up to an including the student’s last day of attendance, by the total days in the semester. The resulting percentage will be used to determine the pro rata amount of Federal aid to be retained.
Federal student aid refunds must be made in the following priority order.
1. Unsubsidized Federal Direct Stafford Loan
2. Subsidized Federal Direct Stafford Loan
3. Federal Direct PLUS Loan
4. Federal Pell Grant
6. Other Federal student aid programs
7. Other Federal sources of aid
8. Other state, private, or institutional aid
9. The student
Students are strongly encouraged to check with school officials prior to officially or unofficially withdrawing.
