Refund Policy

  • The enrollment deposit will not be refunded once course placement is accepted. 
    • The enrollment deposit will be refunded only if you are not accepted due to not meeting GPA requirements. In all other instances, the deposit is nonrefundable and will be applied to the overall program cost.
  • The withdrawal deadline is 3 weeks (21 days) prior to the start of the course. If a student withdraws from the program 3 weeks prior to the course start date, a written refund request is required. Summer Scholars will review the request and program fees paid (less the nonrefundable deposit) may be refunded.
  • Any student who withdraws or is dismissed from the program for any reason after three weeks prior to the program start will not be eligible for any refunds.
