Example Refund Calculation – Student Tuition Assistance Reimbursement: Student withdraws from a course approved for tuition assistance (e.g. Mobility $1,750) in the 3rd week of a 9-week course, the student owes APT College $700 (40% of $1,750) of the tuition for the course. Since the student chose to withdraw from the course, they are no longer eligible for tuition assistance funds.

Example Refund Calculation – Student Prepaid: Student has paid $1,750 for a 9-week course and withdraws from the course during the 4th week, APT College will refund $875 (50% of $1,750) of the tuition paid to the student. APT College retains $875 (50%) of the course tuition.

You may be administratively cancelled from the course if you do not attend the first two weeks of class (online) or the first two sessions (blended) without prior arrangement with the College. If the College cancels a course, all students in that course will receive a full (100%) refund of all monies paid.
