Refund Policy

We reserve the right to change the curriculum and courses without prior notification. If necessary, students may cancel a course in writing by notifying the Registrar.

Refunds for course cancellation are based on withdrawal or dismissal from a course according to the Course Refund Schedule, minus a Course Cancellation Fee.

Course Cancellation Fee

A $50 administrative fee is assessed for course cancellation. The fee will be assessed for canceling a course from two weeks before the course starts to any point during the course.

When a course is canceled, a refund will be issued as stated in the Course Refund Schedule, minus the $50 administrative fee. Refunds are made within 30 days after the date of the request to cancel.

Course Refund Schedule

During the first week of class 95% minus $50
During the second week of class 75% minus $50
During the third week of class 50% minus $50
After the third week of class 0% minus $50

Change of Status Option

There may be occasions when an enrolled student wants to change status from for-credit to audit status or vice versa. The policy for change of status is explained below.

Changing Status from For-Credit to Audit

For-credit students who have paid in full and who no longer want to submit assignments for grading, but want to receive all of the instructional materials may submit a request to the Registrar for a change of status to “audit.” Auditing students have full access to course materials but do not have to submit assignments, and they do not have access to course forums or instructors.

If a student wishes to change to audit status:

  • “Change of Status to Audit” will be noted on the student’s transcript
  • A failing grade will not appear on the student’s transcript
  • A refund will not be issued

If a student who shifts to audit status wants to receive credit for the incomplete course in the future, the course will need to be retaken for credit.

Changing Status from Audit to For-Credit

Students who are auditing a course may not switch to “for-credit” status during the audited course. If they wish to receive credit, they will need to apply for enrollment in Summit University Online, pay the appropriate tuition and fees, and retake the course from the beginning.

Financial Aid and Scholarships

Financial aid (grants, loans, scholarships, etc.) is not offered through Summit University Online.
