Residence Hall Deposit - Refund Policy
Each student will be assessed a $500 refundable residence hall damage deposit. A student will be charged for any damage to College property. If there is no damage and the room/hall is left clean, the entire amount is eligible to be refunded at the end of the year, but will first be applied to any prior outstanding student balances. Requests for refunds should be completed within one calendar year from the date of final occupancy, or may result in forfeiture of the deposit. Refund request forms may be obtained from the Bursar Office or found on the Fisher College Web site.
Institutional Funds - Refund Policy
Institutional aid is refunded based upon withdrawal date and follows procedure set forth in the Refund Schedule. In addition, Institutional scholarships are deemed to have been applied to a student's account following credits to the account from all other sources of student funding. If a credit (refund) balance exists on the student account upon the successful completion of enrollment requirements, graduation, or withdrawal from Fisher College for any other reason, the student has one calendar year from the date of separation to apply for a student refund that has been generated from, or includes, Institutional funds. After one calendar year, Fisher College reserves the right to retract the Institutional scholarships deemed to have created the credit balance. Refund request forms may be obtained from the Bursar Office, the local DAPS campus, or found on the Fisher College Web site.
Tuition Refund Plan
As a supplement to the University Refund Policy, we are pleased to offer an additional Tuition Insurance program through Liberty Mutual Insurance.
The plan supplements the university refund schedule, and provides 100% coverage throughout the entire term. If you withdraw from classes due to illness, injury, mental health issues, unforeseen loss of life or any other eligible reason, the plan will ensure that you receive 100% of your insured tuition, room and board, and some fees.
How to enroll:
You can purchase a customizable insurance policy for your chosen insured amount and time period (semester or year) directly on the Liberty Mutual website
at a cost of ~1% of the insured amount. You must purchase a policy prior to the first day of classes.
International and study abroad students are also eligible for Tuition Insurance. Study Abroad students must purchase a policy prior to the first day of classes at the foreign university.
Insurance Claims Forms:
Students who terminate enrollment (including voluntary withdrawals, illness, suspension or dismissal) may be eligible for a refund. Refunds will be determined based on the schedule below. Financial Aid may be applied to all or part of the charges. The withdrawal date is the last date of class attendance as verified by faculty, or the date that the notice in writing is either received by the Vice President for Academic Affairs or postmarked if mailed.
