Withdrawals, Refunds and Return of Financial Aid
All fees and required tuition deposits are non-refundable and will be deducted from the total tuition refund. Refunds will be pro-rated according to the School's published refund policy.
To obtain an official withdrawal, students must submit a Withdrawal Form to their Faculty Advisor, who will then submit it to The Ailey School Directors. The tuition charge will be assessed according to the student's last date of attendance and the School's published refund policy.
Return of Title IV Aid and Early Withdrawal
If you receive Federal Financial Aid you may owe a cash payment to The Ailey School or the Federal Government by withdrawing from school. In short, you have not “earned” the aid you have received until you complete 60% of term in which you receive aid.
The amount of aid that you can keep (i.e., earned) is calculated as follows:
Aid You Can Keep = (No. of Days Completed ÷ No. of Days in the Term Including Weekends) x Aid Received
Federal financial aid is available for qualifying Certificate and Independent Study Program students.
Contact Admissions with any additional questions.
