Students must notify the Office of the Registrar in a timely manner if they intend to withdraw from selected courses or from SCUSOMA.
If at the time of withdrawal the student’s payments for the quarter exceed the amount of liability, the funds will be returned to the source according to regulations. If the student’s payments are less than the liability, the balance will be due and payable as of that date.
Percentage of Course Completed Tuition Refund
41% or greater no refund
All students shall have the right to cancel their enrollment agreement and obtain a refund of charges through the first class session, or the 7th day after enrollment, whichever is later. After the cancellation period, all students are entitle to a pro-rata refund through up to 60% of the period of attendance.
REFUND POLICY (Buyer’s Right to Cancel Policy)
A student may cancel an enrollment agreement and receive a refund of charges paid through attendance at the first class session, or the seventh day after enrollment, whichever is later. Students who have completed
60% or less of the ten (10) week quarter will receive refunds on a pro-rata basis.
The refund will be the amount of tuition paid multiplied by a fraction, with the numerator as the number of class hours the student has not attended but paid for, and the denominator as the total number of class hours (credit units x 10) for which the student has paid. The student will not receive a tuition refund after more than 60% of the instruction of a course has been conducted. Except for tuition, all other charges and fees paid at the time of enrollment are non-refundable. Books, textbooks, and other materials purchased by the student at the University’s bookstore are the property of that student.
SCUSOMA will neither accept return of purchased materials, nor make refunds for services. To receive a tuition refund, a student must submit in writing a dated and signed request for withdrawal. The refund formula above shall be based on the day the SCUSOMA receives the withdrawal notice from the student. Verbal, e-mail, or telephone withdrawal notices will not be accepted. No refunds may be disbursed to a student until the Financial Aid Program has been repaid.
SCUSOMA is obligated to repay the following funds: Title IV Sources: Unsubsidized Federal Direct Stafford Loans, Subsidized Federal Direct Stafford Loans, and Scholarships. Refunds will be determined by the percentage of tuition contributed by that source.
