Financial Policies

The University is committed to doing everything possible to help eligible students meet their financial needs. Major responsibility for securing the necessary financial resources rests with the student. The school will make every effort to assist the student by helping students and spouses find employment, loans and scholarships.

In some cases, assistance can be expected and should be sought from the home church, support of family and friends, summer savings, and work-study funds. The University does not currently participate in state or federal financial assistance programs. Financial assistance may come in the form of Financing Plans, private scholarships, or the Achievement Scholarship. A student enrolled in an unaccredited institution is not eligible for federal financial aid programs. (CEC §94909(a) (16) and CEC §94897(p))

Financial Suspension

The student has the right to cancel the enrollment agreement, withdraw, and obtain a refund of charges paid through attendance at the first class session, or the seventh day after enrollment, whichever comes later.

Students may withdraw from courses by Wednesday of the second week of the quarter without affecting GPA. Thereafter, students are required to obtain a permit from the Academic Dean to withdraw. Withdrawal from enrolled classes after the first two weeks with the proper withdrawal procedure will result in a “W” grade recorded in the official transcript. No withdrawals are permitted during the final three weeks of instruction except in cases such as accident or serious illness.

The University will pay any refund due under the terms of the policy within 30 days of the written cancellation and withdrawal. The student is responsible for paying any amount due to the University as a result of an underpayment.

A grade of “F” will be automatically entered in the grade report if the student does not attend final three weeks of class without being excused. Withdrawal grades are not included in the GPA. Refund of Tuition, if any, will be made in accordance with the Refund of Tuition and Fees regulation.

Tuition Refund Policy – Formula: Constant – Tuition Aspect: Variable – Example

Total tuition charge for 2,160 didactic hours and 960 clinical hours: $32,640.00

Didactic Tuition Refund – Student enrolled in 12 units, withdrew after third week

Total tuition charges for 2,160 didactic hours (216 units X $120.00): $ 25,920.00 Divide total didactic tuition by number of didactic hours (25,920/2160)= 12

[This number (the quotient) represents the hourly charge for the didactic aspect of the program.] Amount owed by student: Hourly charge ($12.00) X total hours attended per 3 units (30 hrs): $360.00

Amount paid by student (12 units X $120.00 per unit) $ 1,440.00 Amount of Didactic Tuition

Refund (amount paid minus amount owed – $1,440 minus $432.00): $ 1,008

Tuition Refund Policy – Formula: Constant – Tuition Aspect: Variable – Example

Total tuition charge for 2,160 didactic hours and 960 clinical hours: $32,640.00
