After a student has enrolled in the Seminary, any action that would cause the student to leave the Seminary before routine completion of the semester (voluntary or involuntary) will be considered a withdrawal.
To withdraw from the Seminary with official approval, a student must have a withdrawal form properly executed by the Academic Offices.
Whenever a student’s status is changed to “withdrawn” and the student owes money on his account, the money is due upon withdrawal.
Interest of one percent per month (12% APR) will be charged on the unpaid balance beginning 30 days after the withdrawal until the debt is paid in full.
Should a student leave the Seminary for any reason after having paid more than the amounts outlined above, a refund is made to him for any
overpayment; but no refund is made to a student for any other reason. No refunds are issued on a student’s account until after the third week
of school has been completed.
For a student to withdraw from a class, he must obtain written permission from the Registrar.
When a student is accepted for the fall semester, he is expected to remain a student at the Seminary for both the fall and the spring semesters of that
academic year. The student’s reservation is automatically carried over from the fall semester to the spring semester within a given school year. Therefore,
if a student withdraws at the end of the fall semester, he must notify the Seminary-Graduate Studies Office in writing.
Fall and Spring
A student is entitled to a full refund of tuition prior to commencement of instruction. A student whose withdrawal is officially approved and whose departure is before the end of the first three weeks of the semester owes the semester’s tuition
according to the following schedule:
|During first week—25% tuition
- Fall: Aug. 29–Sept. 4, 2017
- Spring: Jan. 23–29, 2018
|During second week—50% tuition
- Fall: Sept. 5–11, 2017
- Spring: Jan. 30–Feb. 5, 2018
|During third week—75% tuition
- Fall: Sept. 12–18, 2017
- Spring: Feb. 6–12, 2018
|After three weeks—100% tuition
- Fall: after Sept. 18, 2017
- Spring: after Feb. 12, 2018
A student also owes fees and room and board (if a residence hall student) at a prorated amount based on the length of his stay.
If a student comes and claims his reservation but withdraws before completing the session, he is responsible for full tuition and fees for the course
that session (exception: students taking 2 courses each day or courses carrying a load of more than 3 credits—see the Business Office Supervisor).
