REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY (EFFECTIVE November 9, 2016)
REJECTION Any student who is rejected for admission to Hussian College will receive a full refund of monies paid.
CANCELLATION All monies paid by an applicant will be refunded following their delivery of a written request for cancellation to the Registrar’s Office within five (5) days after signing an Enrollment Agreement. If unable to provide a written request within five (5) days, the student may preserve their right to a full refund by verbally requesting cancellation from the Registrar within five (5) days, and submitting the formal written request within ten (10) days from signing the Enrollment Agreement. Students will not be entitled to a full refund if a written request for cancellation is submitted after the start of classes.
WITHDRAWAL PRIOR TO CLASSES Students will receive a full refund of all tuition and fees if they provide a written notice of withdrawal to the Registrar no later than five (5) days following their initial visit and opportunity for inspection of the College facilities, but in any event, no later than ten (10) days prior to the first day of classes. Students providing a written notice of withdrawal to the Registrar, which does not comply with the policy regarding cancellation or inspection of College facilities, but is provided before the start of classes, will receive a full refund of all monies paid to Hussian College in excess of the $100.00 Enrollment Fee.
REFUNDS AFTER THE START OF CLASSES Students missing seven (7) consecutive class days will be administratively terminated. In all circumstances, the date of termination or date of withdrawal for the purpose of calculating a student refund will be the last date of attendance. The following refund calculation shall apply to all students:
Failure to Start: Students that fail to start the program, and do not withdraw prior to the first day of classes, will be refunded all tuition monies and fees paid except for the $100 enrollment fee.
The First Seven Days of the Calendar: For a student withdrawing or discontinuing the program during the first seven (7) calendar days of the semester, the tuition charges refunded by the college will be 75% of the tuition.
Students whose last day of attendance falls after the first 7 calendar days of the semester but within the first 25% of the semester will receive refunds of 55% of the tuition.
For students whose last day of attendance is after 25% but within 50% of the semester, the tuition charges refunded by the school will be 30% of the tuition.
For students whose last date of attendance falls after 50% of the semester, the student
is entitled to no refund.
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 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 college officials prior to officially or unofficially withdrawing.
