Refund Policy - Withdrawals

The purpose of this refund policy is to document 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.
