Payment Policies

After registration and payment of the registration fee, students must pay 50% of the quarterly tuition and fees prior to the beginning of the term. The remaining 50% of the quarterly tuition and fees must be paid during the grace period ending on Wednesday of the 2nd week of the quarter (last day to Add and Drop). If the tuition and fee are not paid in full by the end of the 2nd week of the quarter, registration for the next quarter will be blocked.

These payment policies will not be applicable to students who receive funds through federal financial aid program or any other program (Veteran, Rehab or private loan).

Tuition Refund Policy

Student’s Right to Cancel

The student has the right to cancel the enrollment agreement for a program of instruction, without any penalty or obligations, through attendance at the first class session, or the seventh day after enrollment, whichever is later.

Cancellation may occur when the student provides a written notice of cancellation at the following address: South Baylo University School of Oriental Medicine, 1126 North Brookhurst St., Anaheim, CA 92801. This can be done by mail or by hand delivery.

 The written notice, if sent by mail, is effective when deposited in the mail properly addressed with proper postage. The written notice of cancellation need not take any particular form and, however, expressed, is effective if it shows that the student no longer wishes to be bound by the Enrollment Agreement.

 If the student has received federal student financial aid funds, the student is entitled to a refund of money not paid from federal student financial aid programs. The School will refund any money that the student paid within fifteen (15) working days after the school receives the notification of cancellation

 

Refund Policy

The student has the right to withdraw from a course of instruction at any time after the cancellation period (described above) and receive a pro-rata refund for the current term if the student has completed less than 60 percent of the scheduled class days through the last day of attendance in that term. The refund will be the amount of tuition paid multiplied by a fraction, with the numerator as the number of class hours the student has not attended but paid for, and the denominator as the total number of class hours for which the student has paid. The refund does not apply to fees identified as “non-refundable”, and it will be issued within ten (10) working days of withdrawal.

For the purpose of determining a refund under this section, a student shall be deemed to have withdrawn from the course when any of the following occurs:

  1. The student notifies the school of the student’s withdrawal or the actual date of withdrawal, whichever is later.
  2. The school terminates the student’s enrollment for failure to maintain satisfactory progress, failure to abide by the rules and regulations of the school, unexcused absences in excess of maximum set forth by the school, and/or failure to meet financial obligations to the school.
  3. The student has failed to attend a class for three (3) consecutive weeks.
  4. The student fails to return from a leave of absence.

For the purpose of determining the amount of the refund, the date of the student’s withdrawal shall be deemed the last date recorded attendance. The amount owed equals the daily charge for the program (total institutional charge, minus non-refundable fees, divided by the number of days in the program), multiplied by the number of days scheduled to attend, prior to withdrawal. If the student has completed more than 60% of the period of attendance for which the student was charged, the tuition is considered earned and the student will receive no refund.

For the purpose of determining when the refund must be paid, the date of the institution’s determination that the student withdrew should be no later than 14 days after the student’s last day of attendance, as determined by the school’s attendance records.

If any portion of the tuition was paid from the proceeds of a loan or third party, the refund shall be sent to the lender, third party or, if appropriate, to the state or federal agency that guaranteed or reinsured the loan. Any amount of the refund in excess of the unpaid balance of the loan shall be first used to repay any student financial aid programs from which the student received benefits, in proportion to the amount of the benefits received, and any remaining amount shall be paid to the student.

If the student has received federal student financial aid funds, the student is entitled to a refund of money not paid from federal student financial aid programs. The School will refund any money that the student paid within fifteen (15) working days after the school receives the notification of cancellation

Return of Federal Title IV Funds

SBU is required to recalculate federal financial aid eligibility up through 60 percent of the quarter for students who withdraw, drop out, are dismissed, or take a leave of absence. Recalculation is done from the actual date the student begins the University through the last day of recorded attendance. The refund calculation is based on formulas that determine the amount of aid earned and the amount of aid to be returned. The formulas used for recalculation can be obtained from the SBU Financial Aid Office.

Federal refund calculations are completely separate from the SBU tuition refund policy. Therefore, a student may still owe funds to the University to cover unpaid institutional charges. SBU will also charge the student for any Title IV program funds that SBU was required to return. Federal Title IV funds are always returned in the order mandated by the U.S. Department of Education. That order is:

1. Unsubsidized Federal Direct Stafford Loan
2. Subsidized Federal Direct Stafford Loan
3. Federal Pell Grant
4. FSEOG

Note: The Federal Title IV Refund Calculations only apply to withdrawals from all classes. However, if a student changes enrollment status, and if there is an adjustment made to the tuition charge, the Financial Aid Office may recalculate the student Cost of Attendance Budget to see if the aid eligibility has changed.
