Refund & Cancellation Policy

REFUND POLICY

In the event a student does not enter a program for which she/he has enrolled, withdraws after beginning classes, or is dismissed from the school prior to completion of the program a refund of monies paid (applied to the student’s tuition account) is made to the student in accordance with this refund policy. This refers to the payment plan or paying per quarter in full.

REFUNDS FOR CLASSES CANCELED BY THE INSTITUTION

If fees are collected in advance of the start date of a program and SUNM cancels the class, SUNM will refund 100% of the tuition and fees collected. The refund will be issued within 30 days of the date of cancellation.

COURSE WITHDRAWAL

A student may withdraw from a course any time. After a student officially withdraws from a course, he/she will have to repeat the course in full in order to receive credit for it. Refunds shall be made according to the refund policy.

PROGRAM WITHDRAWAL

Any student who wishes to withdraw from the program may do so. Any student who formally withdraws from the program will be subject to the re-admissions policy if at any time they wish to be re-admitted. Refunds will be made according to the refund policy.

WITHDRAWAL DATE

The withdrawal date used to determine when the student is no longer enrolled at SUNM is the date the student began the withdrawal process by completing an official withdrawal form, submitting that form to the Registrar’s office and ceasing to attend classes or other school activities. A student who submits a completed official withdrawal form, but continues to attend classes or other school will not be considered to have officially withdrawn from the school. If a student does not complete the official withdrawal process, the school will determine the school’s withdrawal date based upon the last date of student activity. A student has the right to withdraw from a degree program at any time. If a student withdraws from the degree program after the period allowed for cancellation of her/his Enrollment Agreement, which is until midnight of the fifth business day following the first class the student attended, SUNM will remit a refund, according to the refund policy. The student is obligated to pay only for educational services rendered. The refund will be made according to the refund policy. If a student incurs 14 consecutive calendar days of absence, excluding holidays, does not communicate directly with the school regarding the nature of those absences, and does not officially withdraw from the course in writing, she/he will be considered withdrawn from the course. The refund will be calculated based on the refund policy.

REFUNDS FOR STUDENTS WHO WITHDRAW ON OR BEFORE THE FIRST DAY OF CLASS

If tuition is collected in advance of the start date of classes and the student does not begin classes or withdraws on the first day of classes, SUNM will refund 100% of the tuition paid. The refund will be issued within 30 days of the first day of class.
