The Registrar will provide a list of all required and recommended books and materials for each upcoming year no later than July 1st. Students are responsible for obtaining the required books and materials prior to the first day of class.

A student is enrolled until the date the Registrar receives the completed withdrawal form and grants leave, withdrawal, suspension, or dismissal.
If a student is enrolled on the first day of a month (or any day thereafter), then that month’s tuition is due, even if the student does not attend classes during that month.
Refunds are not allowed for malpractice insurance or other items or services which have been pre-ordered or pre-purchased by the school.
Students who pay out of pocket annually or biannually will be refunded tuition for prepaid months for which they are no longer enrolled.
