Refund Policy - Withdrawals

Documenting circumstances under which a refund will be given to students for tuition, fees, room and board.

YCP invests significant resources and incurs costs with the understanding that enrolled students intend to complete the academic curriculum to which they have committed. It is important that there be a clear and consistent policy regarding refunds to be equitable to all students and to YCP.

Prior to the end of drop/add, tuition and fees are automatically refunded 100% less any deposits. After the drop/add period, all students must submit a "Request for Change in Student Record" form to the Records Office to be eligible for a tuition refund. Additionally, full-time undergraduate students withdrawing from all coursework must meet with the Dean of Student Affairs to be eligible for a tuition refund. Refunds will be calculated based on the Tuition Refund Schedule.

Fees are non-refundable after the drop/add period. This includes, but is not limited to, the general, student activity, and course fees.

Failure to attend class, giving notice to instructors, emailing or telephoning, will not be considered an official withdrawal. In the absence of an official withdrawal, the student will be responsible for all tuition, fees, and room and board.

Please note: Financial aid adjustments will be made according to applicable federal refund regulations under the Higher Education Amendments of 1998 (HEA98). Questions regarding potential impact should be addressed with the financial aid department.

  • Dropped Classes and Withdrawals

    Dropped Classes and Withdrawals

    Dropped classes between 12 and 18 credits (full-time status) will not result in a tuition refund. Refunds will be calculated for credits dropped below 12 and over 18 using the Tuition Refund Schedule. With the exception of a complete withdrawal, the refund calculation for full-time students falling below 12 credits will be calculated on a per credit basis using the full-time tuition divided by 12 credits.

    Withdrawals prior to the first day of the semester will receive a 100% refund of tuition, fees, and room-and-board as charged less any deposits as per the Tuition Refund Schedule.

    Impact on Financial Aid - If you are receiving federal financial aid, e.g., Direct Loans, Pell Grant, SEOG, Parent Plus, or Perkins, and drop/withdraw, your financial aid may be adjusted. You are liable for the debt incurred and your eligibility for future financial aid could be affected. Please contact the Financial Aid Office for more details.
