190.340–WITHDRAWAL & REFUND POLICY

Date Revised: September 2016

POLICY
Enrollment is limited in our programs, so once a student has been accepted, full participation is important, and students are expected to attend.

PROCEDURE
If a student must withdraw from a program; Maine Media College provides the following refund policy:
Students who withdraw or are dismissed within the first fourteen days of any given trimester shall receive a full tuition refund. Students who withdraw or are dismissed after the second week and prior to the fifth week of any given trimester shall receive a fifty percent tuition refund. Students who withdraw or are dismissed after the fifth week will not receive refund. To receive a refund, students must submit written notification of withdrawal. The date that written notification is received determines charges and refunds. Students withdrawing or dismissed are responsible for all financial obligations not covered by the institution’s refund policy.

If the student requests cancellation and/or refund within 3 business days after signing of the contract, the school shall refund all monies paid to the school by the student. In the case of a student whose enrollment application is rejected by the school, the school shall refund in full all monies paid to the school by the student, less an application fee that may not exceed $25. In the case of termination or withdrawal after classes commence, the school may retain the registration fee (not to exceed $150) and other charges as specified in the refund policy. Refunds shall be made within 30 days after the effective date of withdrawal or termination.

A cancellation fee of $100 will be assessed for cancellations of campus accommodations made within ten days before the start of the program.

Dismissal: Students who are dismissed for any reason forfeit all fees and monies paid.
