Tuition Refund

As Saint Anthony College of Nursing incurs expenses in advance for the entire academic year, a tuition refund schedule has been developed to reflect an equal sharing of the loss when a student withdraws.

Students who officially withdraw from all courses enrolled at the College or who are dismissed will be able to receive refunds according to the following schedule:

Semester Week of Withdrawal Percent of Tuition
Prior to the beginning of semester  100 
End of week 1  90 
End of week 2 70
End of week 3 50
  • The beginning of each semester is defined by the academic calendar and not individual course start dates.
  • No refunds will be granted after the end of the third week of the semester. For courses that run for over 16 weeks, the refund would be prorated accordingly and based on the start date of the course.
  • There is no refund on supplies or fees

Requesting a Refund

In order to receive the appropriate refund, a student who wishes to withdraw from the College must comply with  the
"Withdrawal from the College Policy and Procedure", which is located in the College Catalog."   
A " Withdrawal from the College Form " must be completed and submited to the college's registrar office.

Financial Aid Recipients

This policy may be superseded by any federal and/or state mandate (i.e.: Title 34, Section 668.22 Department of Education Federal Regulations) necessary to remain eligible for student financial aid programs.

Any refunds or repayments are made to the financial aid programs first.

Any financial aid proceeds given directly to the student prior to the refund date may be subject to repayment by the student.

Know the consequences before you withdraw!

Push PAUSE and consider the consequences of not completing a course.

P Payments There may be fees (tuition and/or administrative) payable after withdrawal.
A Academics Course withdrawals will appear on your academic record, and may have an impact in the future.
