Refund Policy

Students have three working days from the date of signing an enrollment contract or financial agreement with the university to cancel the contract and receive a full refund of any tuition and registration fees paid. Further, a student shall receive a full refund of tuition and registration fees paid by the student before the commencement of instruction if the student submits a written request to the institution within three working days of the payment.


Students are expected to pay tuition in full at the time of registration. Students receiving financial aid must familiarize themselves with the requirements of that office with regard to payments and may defer payment only if they have been officially notified of an award. Once a loan check is disbursed, students will be responsible for making all appropriate payments.

The total expenses of students enrolled in doctoral programs vary greatly depending on individual circumstances. While tuition, registration, and other fees,* and the cost of books are relatively constant for all students, other expenses will differ.
