to withdraw (includes not returning on the expected return date from an
approved Leave of Absence) will be unofficially withdrawn within 14
calendar days of the last date of attendance or an academically related
activity. The date under these circumstances is considered to be the
Date of Determination of the withdrawal. If a Student withdraws or is

Withdrawal or dismissal after attendance has begun, but prior to 40%
completion of the program, will result in a Pro-Rata tuition refund computed on the number of hours completed to the total program hours.
Withdrawal or dismissal after completing 40% of the program will result
in no refund. Withdrawal or dismissal after completing 80% of a course
(s) in the program will result in the grade earned in the course(s) at the
time of withdrawal being posted to the students grade record, which will
effect the students GPA.
Termination date: In calculating the tuition refund due to a student, the
last date of actual attendance by the student is used in the calculation,
or later, if an academically related activity is noted.
