Tuition Policies

We're confident you will find our courses to be a great learning experience. If you should have difficulty completing a seminar or course and need to cancel or withdraw, our policies regarding those matters and refunds are outlined below.


Student's Right to Cancel
You may withdraw from a degree program at any time. Contact the Program Director on campus to request withdrawal from the program. If your program director is unavailable, you may contact the university registrar at drondinelli@usa.edu or 800-241-1027 x1205.

If you are a continuing education student, you may contact the Registration office by phone at (904) 826-0084 to withdraw from an individual seminar.

Transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy, Post-Professional Doctor of Occupational Therapy, Doctor of Health Science, Doctor of Education
Seminar Fee Refund Policy
A $100 non-refundable deposit must accompany your registration form. The balance of the fee is due 30 days prior to the starting date of the seminar; unpaid balances may be subject to forfeited registration. The balance may be transferred or refunded with a 2 week notice prior to the start date of the seminar. Cancellation up to three working days prior to the start of the seminar will result in 50% of the balance being refunded. With three working days notice, no portion of the seminar fee will be refunded; however, the fee may be transferred to another seminar of the student's choosing or placed in a "funds on hold" account. Transfer of funds is limited to two seminars.

After the seminar begins, no refunds are issued or transfer of funds permitted. If a student misses any portion of a seminar, a certificate of completion will not be issued until such portion is made up. A student can attend a subsequently scheduled seminar at no cost to make up the time and then receive his or her certificate upon successful completion. For online CEU seminars please refer to the Academic Credit Refund policy.

In the event of employer paid registrations, the employer has the right to cancel the registration under the above policy. The therapist will be contacted and may be given the option to remain registered for the seminar and become the responsible party for the fee.

Academic Credit Refund Policy
A separate payment or tuition price is charged for the academic credit for the transitional and post-professional portion of a course as shown on the enrollment form. If you decide to cancel the academic credit portion of the course, the following refund policy applies:

1) If you cancel within five days after remitting payment for the academic credit tuition, the University will refund in full the academic credit tuition.

2) If you cancel the academic credit portion of the course after five days of remitting payment but before the specified course completion date, the University will refund to you the academic credit tuition less an administrative fee equal to 20% of the tuition, but not to exceed $100.

3) After the receipt of one (1) or more credit assignments within the specified course enrollment period, the University will retain the administrative fee plus a percentage of the academic credit tuition as follows:

Academic Residency courses have a combined seminar and academic credit tuition. In these courses, the Seminar Tuition refund policy as shown above applies.

Refund Example: Differential Diagnosis in the Transitional DPT program is 8 weeks long, therefore it falls under the 7-10 weeklong course. The tuition for this 2-credit course is $930 ($465 x 2). A student decides to leave the course during the second week of the course. Therefore, the student is entitled to a refund of $664.00, initial tuition of $930 less the minimum administrative fee of $100.00 (20% of the total academic credit tuition, not to exceed $100), times the eligible refund percent of 80% = $830 * 80% = $664.00.

Tuition / Fees: Separate fees must be paid for library searches, transcripts, copies and other such services. All required seminar manuals are included in seminar fees. Recommended and required textbooks are available at an additional cost.

For students who receive federal financial aid and who withdraw from on or before 60% of the term has elapsed, FCSL will calculate according to federal regulations, any amounts disbursed that must be returned to the Title IV programs.

The Transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy should be completed in four years. The transitional Doctor of Occupational Therapy should be completed in three years for students entering with a master's degree and five years for students entering with a bachelor's degree. The Doctor of Health Science and the Doctor of Education should be completed in five years. The academic credit portion of each course should be completed according to the stated due date. Extensions may be granted according to the terms indicated in the catalog for both graduation and course completion.

All academic and financial obligations must be met in order to receive credit for the course.

Seminars & Certification Programs: A $100 non-refundable deposit is required when registering for continuing education seminars. Seminar tuition is due 30 days prior to the first day of the class. If you call to register, your place in the seminar will be held pending receipt of deposit within ten working days. Payment can be made with check, money order, Visa or MasterCard. In the event of a company-paid registration, purchase order numbers will be accepted when provided by that company's authorized personnel.

For CPE seminars, with two weeks notice of cancellation by the student, tuition will be either transferred to another seminar, put into a "funds on hold" account, or the balance will be refunded. Cancellation up to three working days prior to the start of the seminar, 50% of the balance will be refunded. With three working days notice, 100% of the balance can be transferred to another seminar or put into a "funds on hold" account. No refunds will be issued. Transfer of funds is limited to two seminars. Funds are held in the "funds on hold" account for two years. After the seminar begins, no refunds are issued or transfers allowed.

In the event of company-paid registration, the company has the right to cancel under the above policy. The therapist will be contacted, and may be given the option to remain registered for the seminar and be the responsible party for the tuition.

A 50% non-refundable, non-transferable deposit must accompany Certification seminar registrations. Balance is due 60 days prior to the start date of the seminar. Refunds requested 90 days or more before the seminar begins permit a transfer of only 50% of the deposit to another seminar, with any balance paid being fully refundable. Cancellation and request for transfers for the Certification seminars received less than 90 days before commencement of the seminar will result in a loss of the deposit. These provisions were added to assist the University in planning for staff and facilities, and to discourage last minute changes in plans by seminar registrants since the University is unable to fill vacancies with other candidates on short notice.

International Students: Tuition payment must be in U.S. funds only. Students in Canada and foreign countries will be responsible for payment of any applicable custom duties. Any holder of this consumer contract is subject to all claims and defenses, which could assert against the seller of goods or services, obtained pursuant hereto or with the proceeds hereof. Recovery hereunder by the debtor shall not exceed the amount paid by the debtor hereunder.
