Cancellation Policy

Add / Drop Period

The Add/Drop period occurs within the first week (seven (7) calendar days (excluding holidays)) of each term. During this period, students may add or drop classes. Charges will be adjusted based on hours attended.  Students dropping all classes will be treated as withdrawals.  Dropped courses occurring within this period will not appear on students’ transcripts nor will these dropped courses be included in evaluating student maximum allowable time frame specific to satisfactory academic progress.  As long as the student remains enrolled in the University, the University will refund 100 percent of the amount paid for institutional charges relating to the course or courses dropped during the Add/Drop period, with a deduction for equipment not returned in new, unopened condition within fourteen (14) days of dropping the associated course.  Refunds due based on the Add/Drop period will be processed within 30 days for Florida, and 45 days in California.  Students should refer to their enrollment agreements for additional refund information.

New students may be admitted during this period provided they attend at least one scheduled class during the Add/Drop period. 

Students will not be admitted after the Add/Drop period without approval from the campus Executive Director and the applicable program Dean/Chair.  Tuition adjustments will not be made after the first week of the term.

Student's Right to Cancel

All Campuses:  Students have the right to cancel an enrollment agreement including any equipment such as books, materials, and supplies or any other goods related to the instruction offered in the agreement, if notice of cancellation is made within seven (7) calendar days (excluding holidays) of enrollment or by the seventh (7th) calendar day of the student’s first term, whichever is later.

Cancellation shall occur when the student gives written notice of cancellation at the address of the university shown on top of the front page of the enrollment agreement. Students can also do this by mail, hand delivery, or email. The written notice of cancellation need not take any particular form and, however expressed, it is effective if it shows that the student no longer wishes to be bound by the agreement.

New students may be admitted during this period provided they attend at least one scheduled class during the Add/Drop period. 

Students will not be admitted after the Add/Drop period without approval from the campus Executive Director and the applicable program Dean/Chair.  Tuition adjustments will not be made after the first week of the term.


California Campuses only:  If the student cancels the agreement, the university will refund 100 percent of the amount paid for institutional charges, with a deduction for equipment not returned in a timely manner in good condition, within 45 days after the student’s notice of cancellation is received.

Florida Campus only:  If the student cancels the agreement, the university will refund 100 percent of the amount paid for institutional charges, with a deduction for equipment not returned in a timely manner in good condition, within 30 days after the student’s notice of cancellation is received.

Withdrawal from Program

Students have the right to withdraw from a program at any time. For the purposes of determining the amount owed for the time frame attended, the student shall be deemed to have withdrawn from the program when any of the following occurs:

  1. The student notifies the university of withdrawal or the actual date of withdrawal; or
  2. The University terminates the student’s enrollment; or
  3. The student fails to attend any classes for fourteen (14) consecutive calendar days without making prior arrangements with the University.
