Explanation of Fees

Tuition

This is the base amount the student will pay for the program of study. It is the number of units necessary for graduation, multiplied by the cost per unit.

Registration Fee

This is a non-refundable fee for administrative and office costs.

Books

An itemized list of the textbooks issued for each program is attached to, or listed in the course syllabus that each student receives in their particular course of study.

Course Challenge Fee

A $300 fee per course will be charged for any course challenged by students. If the challenge test is not passed, then the student will be required to take the course for credit, and the fee paid for the challenge test will be applied toward the tuition of the class.

Returned Check

A $35 fee will be charged if a check is returned for insufficient funds. This fee is added to the amount of the returned check, and the total payment must be made by cashier’s check or money order.

Transcript Fee

A $30 per transcript fee will be charged for any transcript request. This enables the school to send an official copy to another educational institution or to an employer, and it covers the cost of postage and handling. Transcript requests must be in writing. Processing will take seven (7) business days. If a student needs a transcript on a rush basis (less than 7 days), the student can request for the express service by paying extra charge. The transcript fee will be $40, and it will be mailed within 2-3 business days from the day of the request.

Thesis

Students participating in a program that requires a written thesis may opt for printing services available from the university. These costs vary as to the amount of usage by the student, and what services the student uses.

Drop or Withdrawal

Sometimes, outside circumstances may impact a student’s ability to complete the semester or continue their educational program. The Student has the right to withdraw from School. Student may declare for a refund within thirty days of the start of each semester.  All requests to drop or withdraw must be in writing and need to be delivered to the Registrar’s office in person or by registered mail (mail to: The Reformed University, 3010 Wilshire Blvd #228, Los Angeles, CA 90010). If mailed, the date posted on the envelope constitutes the effective date of drop or withdrawal.

The student’s withdrawal is the last date of academic attendance as determined by the institution from its attendance records. The withdrawal date for a student who does not return from an approval leave of absence is set retroactively to the last date of attendance, as determined by the institution’s attendance records.

Note: The Student’s enrollment may be terminated at the request of the School Director, if the Student’s academic progress, behavior, absences, tardiness or dress does not conform to the requirements, rules and regulations of the School, as stated in the School Catalog, the extent of the Student’s tuition obligation will be in accordance with the School’s refund policy.

Refund Policy

If a student drops a course or courses during the add or drop period (first week of the semester; the date is indicated in the school’s academic calendar), no tuition will be charged for any course or courses. After add/drop period, the student will be charged tuition for all of his or her courses (including the withdrawals). However, in the event a student withdraws from all of his or her classes after the add/drop period, student may declare for a refund. Refund will be issued as follows : For 15-week, classes dropped between registration and the end of the first week of the semester, the refund is 100%. For those classes dropped by Friday of the second week of the semester, the refund is 75%; for those dropped the third week of the semester, the refund is 50%. This refund is only available when the student drops all of his or her courses. However no refund will be issued for the course  dropped after thirty days of the start of each semester. If partial courses are dropped, the student is still obligated to pay full amount for the course or courses. The amount of the refund is determined by deducting the registration fee, non-refundable application fee and other school service charges from the total tuition charge.

The school will refund money collected from a third party on the student’s behalf, if the school cancels or discontinues the course in which the student is enrolled, or if the student drops out. If any portion of the tuition was paid from the proceeds of a third party, the refund will be send to the lender or agency that guaranteed the funds.

All the refunds will be processed within 45 days after your Notice of Drop or Withdrawal is received. If the amount that the student has paid is more than the amount that the student owes for the time he or she attended, the refund may be made within thirty (30) days of the withdrawal. If the amount that the student owes is more than the amount that the student has already paid, then the student will have to make arrangement with the school.
