Tuition Refund Policy

Tuition refund refers to money paid toward school charges that must be returned to financial sources and/or to the student. If the student is due a tuition refund, the school must provide a refund whether or not the student requests the tuition refund or formally withdraws from the program. If a student receives an approved leave of absence but does not return from that leave, a tuition refund must be processed within 30 days. If a student withdraws from school, a tuition refund must be made within 60 days of the school’s determination of withdrawal.

Institutional Pro Rata Refund Policy

The pro rata refund applies to all students enrolled at Grady Health System. There is not an applicable state law or refund required by the accrediting agency. Pro rata refund applies to the institutional tuition and fees charged from the first day of class until the 60 percent point in time of the enrollment. After the 60 percent point in time of enrollment there is no refund. A 100 percent refund is due to a student who never enrolls. Tuition refunds are made by the Financial Aid/ Registrar’s office. An explanation of the calculations for determining the amount of financial aid to be returned can be obtained through the Financial Aid/Registrar’s office.

Return Policy for Title IV Grant and Loan Programs

If a student has completed more than 60 percent of the payment period, he/she is considered to have earned 100 percent of the Title IV grant or loan aid received for the payment period. In this case, no funds need to be returned to the Title IV aid programs.

However, if a student withdraws before completing more than 60 percent of the payment period or period of enrollment, the amount of any Title IV loan and grant aid the student received for the payment period (or period of enrollment) must be recalculated to reflect the portion of the payment period that he/she completed prior to withdrawal. The unearned Title IV loan and grant aid for the percentage of the payment period not completed must be returned to the applicable Title IV aid programs.

Veteran’s Refund Policy

For Veteran students the School will refund the unused portion of prepaid tuition and fees on a pro rata basis. Any amount in excess of $10 for an Enrollment Registration fee will also be prorated and returned.
