Notice of Cancellation for MOT, OTD, DPT, MS-SLP Programs

Deposit Refund Policy for MOT, OTD, DPT, MS-SLP Programs

When notification of withdrawal from the University is submitted, the University retains $100 as a matriculation fee.

Tuition Refund Policy For MOT, OTD, DPT, MS-SLP Programs

USAHS has an established add/drop period that is the first week (7 days) of each trimester. All tuition, fees (other than deposit/matriculation fees), and cost of attendance are refunded to students or to student loans if the student withdraws from a program or a course within the add/drop period.

If a student withdraws from the program or a course after the add/drop period but prior to completion, the student may be eligible for a tuition refund in accordance with the following policy:

Withdrawing from a Program-Refund of Tuition after the Start of Trimester Courses:  For students who withdraw from ALL classes during day 1–7 of the trimester (add/drop period), 100% of tuition (minus the deposit/matriculation fee) is refunded to the student and/or to the loan provider. For students who withdraw from ALL classes after day 7 but before 60% of the term has elapsed, the University calculates the refund using a percentage formula and return the refund to the student and/or to the loan provider. If more than 60% of the term has elapsed, there is no refund.

Withdrawing from a Course: Students withdrawing from 1 or more course(s) but not the program, have their refund calculated under the same percentage formula as those withdrawing from a program.

Step 1: Determine the percentage of the enrollment period the student attended before withdrawing (days attended divided by total days in the period).  If more than 60%, then no refund is due.

Step 2: Determine the amount of tuition earned by the school by multiplying the total tuition/fee charged by the percentage of time enrolled.

Step 3: Compare the amount of tuition earned by the school to the amount received by the school. If more funds were received by the school than tuition earned by school, determine the amount of funds that must be returned by subtracting the tuition earned by the school amount from the amount received by the school.

Step 4: Distribute this calculated amount as a refund to the student or to the student loan provider.

Refunds are made within 30 days of the date the University determines that the student has withdrawn.

For students who receive federal financial aid and who withdraw (including transfers and leaves of absence) from ALL classes on or before 60% of the term has elapsed, a portion of their tuition is returned to the lender. Please see the University’s R2T4 policy for further information.
