Tuition Liability Policy
Students incur tuition liability at time of registration. All students must officially withdraw/drop any course in writing and submit this documentation to the Office of Student Records, Room 100, Main Building. The date of this transaction will determine if a tuition refund is due. Students withdrawing for medical reasons incur the same liability as those withdrawing for any non-medical reason. Non-attendance in a course does not constitute either a drop or withdrawal from the course or limit your financial obligation. It is your responsibility to be aware of the tuition refund policy, how to officially withdraw from a course, and the deadlines to add, drop or withdraw from a course.
For all students who withdraw with the approval of the Academic dean or are dismissed, a refund of tuition will be made accordingly:
Day and Evening Students:
- Withdrawal during the first week of semester ……………………….80%
- Withdrawal during the second week of semester ……………………60%
- Withdrawal during the third week of semester ………………………40%
- Withdrawal during the fourth week of semester …………………….20%
- Withdrawal during the fifth week of semester …………………no refund
- Withdrawal before second scheduled weekend ………………………80%
- Withdrawal before third scheduled weekend ……………………….. 60%
- Withdrawal after third scheduled weekend……………………..no refund
Summer Session Students:
- Withdrawal during the first week of session …………………………80%

Tuition Refund Insurance Program
Maria College has partnered with Gallagher Koster to provide a Tuition Refund Insurance Program for its students and families. If you withdraw from school for documented medical injuries or sickness, or experience the death of a tuition payer or the student, the Tuition Refund Plan will protect your educational investment, subject to the terms, conditions and limitations and based on the amount insured.
The Tuition Refund Insurance is available for voluntary enrollment for all students of Maria College. To be eligible for benefits, the student must be enrolled in the Tuition Refund Insurance Program by the first day of classes.

Return of Title IV Funds
Federal regulations require Maria College to prorate financial aid eligibility for recipients of Title IV Federal Educational Assistance who withdraw from the College. If more than the student’s eligibility has already been advanced, Maria College must repay the programs affected and recoup the money from the student.
The proration formula is based on the number of days in the enrollment period from the beginning of the semester until the day of withdrawal. The effective date is the date on which the student notifies the College of withdrawal from all classes. Maria College is required to refund a portion of the financial aid received until 60% of the enrollment period has elapsed. If a student withdraws without notifying the College, the student is considered to have earned 50% of the financial aid received.
Procedures for Payment
Accounts are due and payable at time of registration. Checks should be made payable to Maria College and sent to the Business Office. In addition to cash payment, students may use MasterCard and Visa. Verified financial aid will be credited to student accounts after being validated by the Financial Aid Office. Students will not receive semester reports, transcripts or diplomas until all bills are paid in full. Students who have outstanding debts may not register for courses. A late payment charge of $25.00 a month will be applied to any outstanding balance.
