Refund Policy


You can download the full policy from here

ATMU has in place the following guidelines to facilitate payments of refunds of tuition fees. These guidelines have been provided to ex­plain to staff, sponsors and students when refunds of the tuition fee will be made by the University and how they will they be calculated.

1. Student’s Right to Cancel/ Withdraw

Any student has the right, without explanation, to cancel the enrollment agreement and obtain a full refund of charges paid through at­tendance at the first class session, or the seventh day after enrollment, whichever is later. The cancellation has to be in writing. Any student may withdraw from the school at any time, after classes start, and receive a pro rata refund of 60 percent (60%) or less, calculated based on the remaining scheduled days in the current payment period in the program, and based on the last day of attendance.

The refund granted will have a further deduction for a registration or administration fee, not to exceed $250.00, and the final refund amount will be paid or credited to the student within 45 days of withdrawal.

For the purpose of determining the final amount of the refund, the date of the student’s withdrawal shall be deemed the last date of re­corded attendance.

Refund = Total Amount Student Paid - (Total Institutional Charges/Total Program Hours) x (Total Hours Student Scheduled to Attend) + (Nonrefundable charges + charges for equipment and materials)

For distance education students scheduled days is based on a five days week, which does not include Saturday or Sunday, or any defined holiday within the catalog.

For programs beyond the current “payment period,” if the student obtains a loan to pay for an educational program, the student will have the responsibility to repay the full amount of the load plus interest, less the amount of any refund. The refund shall be sent to the lender, third party or, if appropriate, to the state or federal agency that guaranteed or reinsured the loan.

If the student has received federal student financial aid funds, the student is entitled to a refund of moneys not paid from the federal stu­dent financial aid program funds.

If the student is eligible for a loan guaranteed by the federal or state government and the student defaults on the loan, both of the follow­ing may occur:

The federal or state government or a loan guarantee agency may take action against the student, including applying any income tax re­fund to which the person is entitled to reduce the balance owned on the load, and/ or;

The student may not be eligible for any other federal student financial aid at another institution or other government assistance until the load is repaid.

The institution shall pay or credit refunds within 45 days of a student’s cancellation or withdrawal.
