MEDICAL SCHOOL TUITION POLICIES
TUITION POLICY ON FAILED COURSES
Students failing any course in any semester will be required to repeat that course and will be charged the full rate of tuition for the remedial semester. Questions relating to this policy should be directed to the Office of Student Finance.
TUITION REFUND POLICY FOR WITHDRAWALS
A withdrawal occurs when a student's enrollment is permanently discontinued or, in some cases, even temporarily interrupted (see Note below). Withdrawal may be official (when the student notifies the dean in writing) or unofficial (without written notification). The effective date of withdrawal is normally the student's last date of attendance.
If a student withdraws, Ross University's handling of tuition and charges corresponds with federal loan entitlement regulations, which are based on the period attended:
If a new student withdraws prior to the start of the first semester, no tuition charges are due.
If a continuing student withdraws prior to the start of a semester, no tuition/charges are due.
If a student withdraws during the first 60% of a semester, tuition/charges are directly prorated based on the portion of the semester that has elapsed. (As semesters are normally 15 weeks in length, tuition is prorated for withdrawals during weeks 1 through 9.)
If a student withdraws after the first 60% (i.e., after completing the 9th week) of a semester, full-tuition/charges remain due.
Note: Although a leave of absence may be authorized in limited circumstances, failure to return to the University from a leave of absence is considered a withdrawal as of the last date of attendance. Please note that a leave of absence and an academic leave of absence are two different statuses. (For an explanation of an academic leave of absence, refer to the section on Academic Policies in the Student Handbook). Additionally, under federal regulations, a leave of absence must be requested and approved in advance, may not exceed 180 days, and may not be granted within 12 months of a previous leave of absence. An interruption of enrollment status that does not qualify as a leave of absence is considered a withdrawal as of the last date of attendance.
