Refund Policy

After the last day of the drop and add period for each term, as stated on the academic calendar, no refunds or adjustments will be made to a student who drops individual classes but is otherwise enrolled at the College. Refunds are made for a student who withdraws or is withdrawn from the College prior to the completion of his/her program and is based on the tuition according to the schedule set forth in the “Buyer’s Right to Cancel” section below.

Refunds will be based on the total charge incurred by the Student at the time of withdrawal, not the amount the Student has actually paid. Tuition and fees attributable to any term beyond the term of withdrawal will be refunded in full. When a Student withdraws from the institution, he/she must complete a student withdrawal form with the Registrar.

The date from which refunds will be determined is the last date of recorded attendance. Refunds will be made within 30 calendar days of the notification of an official withdrawal or date of determination of withdrawal by the institution.

If there is a balance due to the College after all Title IV funds have been returned, this balance will be due immediately, unless a cash payment agreement for this balance has been approved by the College. Credit balances due to the Student of less than $5 (after all refunds have been made) will not be refunded to the Student/lender unless requested by the Student.

Right to Cancel

At Brown College, each student will be notified of acceptance/rejection in writing. In the event a student is rejected, all tuition, fees and other charges will be refunded. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, if a student gives written notice of cancellation within five business days of the execution of the contract, then a complete refund is given regardless of whether the program has started.

If a student gives a written notice of cancellation after five business days of the execution of the contract, but before the start of the program by the College, then all tuition, fees and other charges, with the exception of the application fee, shall be refunded to the student.

If a student gives written notice of cancellation after the start of the period of instruction for which the student has been charged, but before completion of 75 percent of the period of instruction, the student is assessed a pro rata portion of tuition, fees and all other charges plus 25 percent of the total program cost (25 percent not to exceed $100).

Any notice of cancellation shall be acknowledged in writing within 10 business days of receipt of such notice and all refunds shall be forwarded to the student within 30 business days of receipt of such notice. This refund policy is not linked to any student conduct policy and any promissory instrument shall not be negotiated prior to the completion of 50 percent of the course. Written notice of cancellation shall take place on the date the letter of cancellation is postmarked or, in the case where the notice is hand carried, it shall occur on the date the notice is delivered to the College.

The date of execution of the enrollment agreement shall be presumed to be the date of delivery of the notice of acceptance: and if delivered by mail, the postmark date of the letter of acceptance.
