*A $100 dormitory and room key contingency fee is required by all students at the time the student first enrolls at the College. Any damage to the dormitory or furniture is charged to this deposit. Students must return their dormitory key and checkout slips at the end of each academic year or the deposit will be forfeited. Any unused portion of the deposit will be refunded at graduation or upon withdrawal from the College once the student has properly checked out of their room.

Credit Balance Refunds: For current students, credit balance refunds may be requested by the student in the finance office approximately two weeks from the start of the semester. Refunds are only processed for fully funded credit balances. Credit refunds for a given semester are processed after the drop/add period 10 days after classes begin. Refund checks are not issued for credit balances of $2 or less. You may pick up these smaller refunds in person at the finance office.

Interterm: The 3 week interterm is part of the academic year and basic Interterm fees are included in the semester billings. No refund for tuition, room or board will be given to students not attending Interterm. There may be additional charges to students enrolled in Interterm courses involving travel, off-campus housing or other expenses.

Withdrawal Policy: Please consult the catalog for information on withdrawal policy and possible refunding of fees. Fees are subject to change without notice.
