Students who voluntarily withdraw from ASL are responsible for paying all assessed tuition and fees due for that semester. To determine the amount of tuition owed, ASL follows the method described by federal Return of Title IV Funds regulations to calculate the percentage of the academic term completed. The amount of tuition owed will be assessed based upon the percentage of time the student spent in academic attendance. For the purposes of this policy, the one-week Introduction to Law class is included for first-year students. This policy applies to all students regardless of whether the student received Title IV funds. Student fees are not refundable.
Up through the 60 percent point in each enrollment period, a prorated schedule is used to determine the amount of tuition the student owes at the time of withdrawal. After the 60 percent point in the enrollment period, a student owes 100 percent of that semester's tuition.
Because the amount of tuition owed depends on the number of academic calendar days the withdrawing student has completed, any student contemplating withdrawal should contact the Financial Aid Office for a calculation of tuition and fees owed as of the student's intended withdrawal date.
Withdrawal forms are available from the Director of Student Services. Withdrawal is effective only upon approval of that form by the Dean or his designee and payment of all tuition or fees owed to ASL. Any tuition the student paid prior to withdrawal that exceeds the amount for which he or she is responsible will be refunded to the student at the address provided to ASL within three weeks of the date of withdrawal. However, ASL will remit excess tuition to a lender or other appropriate agency if it is obligated to do so under the terms of a student's loan program.
