Withdrawals and Refunds

If a student withdraws for any reason, the payment of those fees which have come due is not subject to cancellation or reduction. However, upon written application, and entirely at the option of Bryn Athyn College, the following refunds may be allowed:

  • Withdrawal within the 1st week —A full tuition refund will be issued. Dorm deposit will be retained and 80% of room and board costs for the term will be credited.
  • Withdrawal within the 2nd week—75% of tuition and room costs for the term.
  • Withdrawal within the 3rd week—50% of tuition and room costs for the term.
  • Withdrawal within the 4th week – 25% of tuition and room and board for the term.
  • No refund of tuition or room costs after the 4th week.
  • Comprehensive fee prorated to the end of the week during which the student withdraws.
  • All institutional assistance is prorated based upon actual fees charged.
  • Federal financial assistance is adjusted based on the conditions and timing of the student’s withdrawal, according to the regulations of the U.S. Department of Education. All unearned funds are required by law to be returned. Midterm withdrawals may result in the student owing unearned funds to the College or the Department of Education. Students who are concerned about how a mid-term withdrawal might affect their balance are encouraged to contact the Financial Aid Office.
  • Board fees prorated to the end of the board week in which the student withdraws, plus an overhead charge made by the food service organization.
  • Payment of refunds will be made only after the end of the term during which a student withdraws from school.

Changing to Part-Time

If a student changes from full-time to part-time status during the eligible refund period (the first four weeks of the term), the bill will be prorated such that the student is charged the full-time rate up to the date of the change, and the part-time rate from the date of the change through to the end of the term. Changes in status after the end of the eligible refund period (four weeks) will not result in an adjustment to the bill.
