If a student withdraws before the start of classes, s/he is entitled to a full refund. Once classes begin there is no refund and total tuition is due for the course. A student may miss one class, but additional work for a make-up must be submitted to the instructor. If a student takes one or several courses from us and needs to send proof to OASAS, a transcript request form is completed and processed through the Office of the Registrar. If the student owes a balance, no services will be provided to the student.
