Revisions to the Argosy University Academic Catalog — Undergraduate Programs by Section
Section Six, Financial Policies and Assistance
The second sentence of the first paragraph under “Institutional Refund Policy ” should be replaced with the following:
Exceptions to this policy are students who are enrolled in programs offered at campuses located in Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia and Virginia, as well as students who are residents of Arizona, Georgia, Iowa, Maryland, and Wisconsin who are enrolled in programs offered by Argosy University Online Programs.
“California State Refund Policy ” should be inserted as the second topic under “State Refund Policies ”:
California State Refund Policy
California students are entitled to a full refund of all monies paid, less a one-time, non-refundable application fee of $50.00, if the student withdraws from their program of study under any of the following circumstances:
- before starting classes;
- after attending only one day in their program of study; or
- within seven calendar days after enrolling in their program of study, whichever is later.
All refunds shall be returned to students within forty-five (45) calendar days of cancellation.
If a student withdraws after the cancellation period described above and on or before the applicable Attendance Confirmation date of the first session of enrollment in the semester or instructional time, the student is entitled to a full refund of all monies paid, less a one-time, non-refundable $50 application fee and $200 tuition deposit for applicable programs.
If a student withdraws after the cancellation period described above and after the applicable Attendance Confirmation date of the first session of enrollment in the semester or instructional time, the institution shall prorate the tuition and fees for the enrollment period, less a one-time, non-refundable $50 application fee and $200 tuition deposit for applicable programs, for a student who fails to matriculate in his or her designated program of study. The tuition and fee proration is based upon the number of days the student attends during the enrollment period of withdrawal as follows: A daily tuition and fee charge is calculated by dividing the institutional charges for the enrollment period by the number of days the student is registered to attend in the enrollment period. This daily charge for the program is then multiplied by the number of days the student attended (start of the enrollment period to the last day of the student’s attendance) during this withdrawal enrollment period. This tuition and fee proration will be calculated up to and including the sixty percent (60%) point of the enrollment period. There shall be no refund available to the student if the student withdraws after completing more than sixty percent (60%) of the enrollment period. After the tuition and fee proration is calculated, it will be compared with what has been paid for the enrollment period. If tuition and fees are still due, the student will be billed for the balance. If the student has a credit balance, payment is expected to be made to the student within forty-five (45) calendar days of the student’s completion of, or withdrawal from, the program in which the student was enrolled.
The school will make every effort to refund prepaid amounts for books, supplies and other charges unless the student has consumed or used those items and they can no longer be used or sold to new students, or returned by the school to the supplier.
The following should be added to the Iowa State Refund Policy after the chart:
||For a student who is a member, or the spouse of a member if the member has a dependent child, of the Iowa national guard or reserve forces of the United States and who is ordered to state military service or federal service or duty, the student shall have the following withdrawal options:
- Withdraw from the student’s entire registration and receive a full refund of tuition and mandatory fees.
- Make arrangements with the student’s instructors for course grades, or for incompletes that shall be completed by the student at a later date. If such arrangements are made, the student’s registration shall remain intact and tuition and mandatory fees shall be assessed for the courses in full.
- Make arrangements with only some of the student’s instructors for grades, or for incompletes that shall be completed by the student at a later date. If such arrangements are made, the registration for those courses shall remain intact and tuition and mandatory fees shall be assessed for those courses. Any course for which arrangements cannot be made for grades or incompletes shall be considered dropped and the tuition and mandatory fees for the course refunded.
The update described below applies to “Return of Title IV Aid ”
The first two sentences of the first paragraph under the third topic, “For All Programs ,” have been revised and should be replaced with the following:
If more Federal student financial assistance has been earned than has been received, the student may be eligible for a post-withdrawal disbursement. The school will notify the student of any post-withdrawal disbursement loan funds for which the student may be eligible and what steps need to be taken for the Federal financial assistance funds to be received.
Section Seven, Academic Policies and Procedures
The correction described below applies to “Withdrawal Policy .” The second and third sentences of the second paragraph under “Campus-Based Programs ” should be replaced with the following (correction appears below in red):
Students will have ten business days from their date of determination to file the Voluntary Intent to Continue. Students who do not have a Voluntary Intent to Continue form on file after the tenth business day are dropped from all their courses will be administratively withdrawn from the University.
