Deposit and Deposit Refunds

New Students:


Applicants for both the fall and spring semesters are encouraged to pay the Tuition and Housing/Dorm Damage deposit as soon as possible. We recommend that your fall deposit be received by May 1. Deposits received after May 1 will be accepted contingent upon space availability.

Deposits for the fall semester are refundable only if written notification to the Admissions Office is postmarked by May 1. Deposits received after May 1 are not refundable. Deposits for the spring semester are not refundable.

Returning Students:


Deposits signify a student's intention to return in the succeeding semester and are required prior to scheduling classes. There are two types of deposits:

Tuition deposit - $100 per semester

All students (full and part-time) are required to pay the tuition deposit prior to registering for classes.

Housing/Dorm Damage deposit - $100 per academic year

Please refer to the YCP residency requirement. This deposit is similar to a security deposit.  It is held and applied against any dorm damages assessed upon departure.  Credits will be refunded or applied against other balances.

Typically, deposits for the upcoming fall semester and summer sessions are accepted beginning February 1 and for the spring semester beginning October 1.  Students can pay deposits online or through the Business Office.

Tuition and Housing/Dorm Damage deposits are refundable upon written request to the Business Office (or Registrar's Office) and the Residence Life Office, respectively, up to the date indicated below.
