The College's refund policy applies only to a full and formal withdrawal from the College by completing the appropriate paperwork with the Office of the Dean of the College. Students will be financially responsible for all the courses for which they are registered, whether they attend or not. This refund policy is not applicable to students still enrolled at the College and does not apply in the event that classes are temporarily canceled as the College's educational opportunities are not dependent upon a specific number of classes, hours or weeks of instruction
